Kia ora Tātou

Well, here we are at Week 10 and the last day of term! This term has flown by and we have all been super busy.

I would just like to take this chance to thank everyone for the support this term as I tackled the huge job of trying to fill in for Mr Byers. We have had a successful term with great results in school and out of school with the likes of Epro8 and our Rippa Rugby.

We are all looking forward to having John back with us and for our learning journey to continue.

Have a safe and relaxing holiday break. Enjoy the time you get to spend with whānau

and we look forward to seeing you all back here safe and sound next term.

Rippa Rugby Finals 2022

What a fantastic effort from our Rippa Rugby teams. All 4 teams into the finals day at Paeroa Domain is an amazing achievement. A Huge thank you to the Staff involved and to our dedicated coaches and parents who provided transport and great support from the sidelines on a very wintery day. All of our teams worked hard and showed wonderful team spirit. Our Year 7/8 boys and girls and the Year 5/6 girls made it through to the semi finals and were 'Striving to Succeed' right to the final whistle. Well done Stanley Ave!!

Our students say.....

It was a freezing, windy day in Paeroa. The field was slippery and muddy and all the players were falling over. The year 7&8 boys won 2 out of 4 games out of the whole day and the year 7&8 girls won 2 out of 4 games too. We were on the edge of going home but we persevered and made it into the semi finals!

Xavier Van Kuijk

It was a good start to the day, because In our first game we came away with a really good win, and that gave us confidence for the rest of finals day. We won all of our games and we were very suprised, but thrilled, that we made the semifinals. We were really excited to have made it this far, but sadly we lost our semifinal in the last few minutes by one try. We had a great day and played really well as a team. We also loved our little surprise Kit

Kat at the office when we returned.
