Maungatapere School

Newsletter 7th September 2023

From the principal

Following on from our parent evening and feedback, the leadership team has constructed a survey about our Y7/8 programme at MPS as part of the review process.

Even if your child(ren) are in Yrs 0-6, your opinion is vital to us as your child will be a Y7/8 going forward. Please feel free to answer some or all of the questions as we value all input and want to be best informed when planning for 2024 and beyond. Take the time to discuss these questions with your child(ren), past or present students as their ideas are important to this process.

You can find the survey here

Ag Day Help

We require a parent to run/organise the food tent at Ag Day. This will be working alongside Charlene Cliff with the view to the parent taking over next year.

Please contact the school office if you can help.

Aims Games

Our teams are having a great time in Tauranga at the Aims Games.

From our Basketball Team:

It is soooo cool! They're playing their hearts out. And are being recognised for it too which is super special. Playing 3 games a day and have had some hard games but had some wins. Having a great time!!

From our Netball Team:

We had a very tough pool first up, playing 3 games a day from 9am then finishing with a 6.30pm game. We played some awesome netball but lost all four first up games.

Now in the B Division grade 3 and have had two great wins. Having the most amazing experience, playing schools from all over NZ, having a great time in between games at our base hanging out and making new mates with the other school here. They sing their way to the games and had some great comments about our "team spirit".

There are lots of photos on our facebook page.

Lost Property!

We have a mountain of lost property so if your student is missing clothing or shoes please have a look through.
