Finally at Week 8

We are excited here at IPS we have reached a milestone this year as we end our first full week 8 of face to face contact with our tamariki and whanau. 2020 has most certainly been an interesting year.


We are very grateful to the parents who are assisting with our Waiongana iti Camp next week at Vertical Horizons. Without the willingness and dedication from staff and support of Board of Trustees and Parents to assist, we as a school would not be able to undertake camps. To the staff, thank you all for the tireless work you have put in. The hard part is nearly done and you get to reap the rewards at camp next week.
