Onekawa School Newsletter

Week 9, Term 3, Friday 24 September


Kia ora whanau

It's hard to believe next week is the final week of term three! The term ends on Friday 1 October at the usual time of 3pm.

As mentioned a while back, our school swimming pool has had the repairs completed. We are now waiting for some fine and warm spring weather to be able to paint the pool. We are therefore hoping (and have our fingers crossed) that we will be able to start swimming in term four.

Today's newsletter has lots of photos and videos celebrating the 'fun stuff' that children 'do' at Onekawa School. I hope you enjoy having a look!

Have a lovely weekend.
