Waipipi School 2023

Term 1: Monday 27th February

NZEI Paid Union Meeting- half day is tomorrow (Tuesday 28th February) Please collect your child/ren at 12pm.

All Waiuku teachers will be attending a Paid Union Meeting tomorrow Tuesday 28th February.

As only support staff are onsite, we would appreciate students being collected from school at 12pm.

No buses will run at midday.

As always, we can cater for a small amount of children onsite if you are not able to collect them at 12pm. They will need to be collected at 2:30pm- with no exceptions.

It would be great if all Room 8 students attended in the morning as we have the local Waiuku Librarian visiting to get us hooked up to their online reading service. Children not at school may miss out on this awesome opportunity.

Waipipi School old pool cover is seeking a new home

Our last pool cover is still in excellent condition and is seeking a new address. Apparently, it can be cut down to fit any pool. It is sitting in the SMILE room at the moment if you'd like to come and check it out.

A silent auction will run from today until midday Friday 10th March. Please give Pam your silent auction amount, name and contact information if you are interested in taking this pool cover home.

The winning bid will be notified on Friday 10th after midday. If you win the bid, please ensure that you have the ability to collect the pool cover as soon as possible please.
