Kia ora tatou,
On Thursday 26th June, I was fortunate enough to attend the Māori Achievement Collaborative Regional Hui held at Pai O Hauraki Marae, Paeroa. Mrs Meyler and Whaea Adreena were also in attendance. Together we built relationships and connections with other educators who had travelled from as far as the King Country and Mercury Bay. Our focus for the day was unpacking ‘Te Whare Tapu O Te Ngakau Māori’ a new framework to guide our (MAC) learning.

2023 Stanley Avenue Tennis Championships
Over the final week of Term 2 and first week of Term 3 a strong group of Year 7/8 students battled it out in order to win the prestigious Stanley Avenue Girl and Boy Tennis Cups. We were fortunate enough to be able to practise and play our competition games at the Te Aroha Turf Tennis Courts. Student’s played in a round robin format, as well as learning the art of umpiring along the way. In a hard fought Boys final Xavier Van Kuijk emerged victorious over Charlie Knight. In the girls division Palace Newton took the spoils with victory over Ariana Parker. All students are to be credited for the way their tennis skills improved throughout the tournament along with their sportsmanship.
We would like to thank the Te Aroha Tennis Club for allowing us to use their courts. This was greatly appreciated by all.
Girls Champion- Palace Newton
Girls Runner Up- Ariana Parker
Boys Champion – Xavier Van Kuijk
Boys Runner Up- Charlie Knight

Here is a tip on how to communicate with your child’s teacher on HERO
Open up the app and click on the arrow beside the child that you want to communicate about and then click on Caregiver Communication on the list that dropped down.
If you send a message the student’s teacher will receive it and can reply to you. This sits in HERO then for us to go back to if needed and makes it super simple for you to contact their teacher.
Congratulations to our Week 1 Certificate Recipients

Purchase your Own New SAS Sports Shirt!
We have just gone live on DirectGroup Uniforms with our new Sports Shirts that you are able to purchase. We feel moving forward this is a great option and will save a lot of time issuing and collecting sports shirts. At this time we still have our other sports shirts for anyone that is playing and has not purchased their own yet. Check them out at:
You can purchase the sport shirts and they arrive directly to your address and they even have Afterpay so that it makes it possible to budget. We are looking forward to seeing these appearing on our sports fields.
Uniform room is open Wednesday Mornings 8.30am - 9.30am
