2023 School Kindness Ambassadors

Kindness Ambassadors are their to support any student who needs a friend or support around the school. All these students have the capacity to be empathetic and supportive of others. They are not here to solve students problems, but may be able to help a student find a friend, a game to play, or a teacher if needed.

A photo of each of these students will be on the whiteboard outside Pam's office to remind students of who they are.

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.
