Principal's Comment

Kia ora Parents and Caregivers

It's been a very long journey but we hope to start our playscape development within the next few months.

We are waiting for the final quote for construction and hope to begin soon after.

Team Pipi has already raised $50,000, with more fundraising to come, and we will be applying for grants for the rest of the cost.

I've added the concept plan below. The playscape will include the following:

  • Sandpit
  • Outdoor stage
  • Tunnel
  • Bridges
  • Willow huts
  • Limestone paths
  • Seating
  • Dry river bed
  • Large compass
  • Trees and shrubs

Have a great weekend!

Nga mihi,

Free School Desks

We have several 'old school' desks that we are giving away for free on Monday afternoon between 3 and 3:30pm.

The desks will be set out on our basketball court for collection.
