Kia ora year 5 and 6 whānau!


A reminder that our school camp is coming up on Tuesday November 16th till Friday November 19th.


It is an expectation that your child/ren will attend this camp as it is an essential part of the school curriculum, and an integral part of their development. Team work, independence, self belief, conquering of challenges, collaboration are just a few of the skills that your child will further develop during this fun adventure!


Tom Sheehan, Amy Cousins and myself will be the staff attending camp.


Thank you to the following parent volunteers who will be coming to camp with us:

Glenn Maskill, Paul Jones, Ben Duff, Nigel Lister, Rusty Smith and Claire Redman.


Here is the link to the Medical Consent Form - each child and adult attending camp needs to have one of these completed and sent through to the Camp by Friday 22nd of October.


A reminder please….payment…. If you have any questions or require a statement balance please contact Tracey in the office. We do ask please that these are paid by 1 October 2021.


Below the gear list required for your child/ren.

A separate gear list will be emailed out to camp parent volunteers.


Each child attending camp will bring a container of nut-free baking to camp to be a part of our morning and afternoon teas, and our suppers.


No electronic devices of any kind are to come to camp, and no lollies please.



Thank you in advance for your continued support.
