Tena Koutou Katoa Weber whanau,
Happy new year - the first newsletter of 2023 ! I hope you all had a lovely break and got to enjoy some sunshine. We have had a great start to the year with all our tamariki settled in their classes learning new routines and catching up with friends.
We welcome Bennett Rofe and Toby Halliwell to our school community, we are so delighted to have you here.
We have a busy term planned with Freedom Fridays continuing, Wai Splash swimming instructors visiting for six weeks bringing swimming lessons to us, St John working with our tamariki on first aid to name just a few.
We are looking forward to another busy and successful year.

If your child/ children require their own sunscreen, please feel free to send their preferred lotion to school with them in their bag and we will ensure that it is applied before they go out into the sun.
Working Bee 🐝
Please save the date (24th February) for a working bee from 12pm to 3pm.
A few jobs we would like to get done are:
*De-heading the agapanthus in front of the office
*Building shelves in the green house - treated timber would be great for this if you have any off cuts lying around
*General garden tidy and prune
*Cleaning out gutters
*Sand and paint lunch benches
*Putting the sand back into the sandpit (free of rocks)
Please bring along if you have them, a pair of gloves, secateurs, loppers, a spade, rake, ladder, hammer, nails and a drill to name a few things!
We appreciate all the help we continuously get from our amazing parents and caregivers!
Many hands make light work!!
