Week 4 Term 2, Friday 27 May


Kia ora Families

Next Friday 3 June school will be closed for a teacher only day. Our staff members will be continuing their professional development around structured literacy.

A big thanks to all of you who sold raffle tickets for the playscape development. We have been planning for the playscape for a few years and we have been delayed mainly due to the Covid disruption. We hope to finally begin construction, in part, in the near future. I will continue to keep you updated.

Have a great weekend!

Nga mihi,

If you haven't already returned tickets and money, please do so by Monday morning. We will be carrying out the draw, under police supervision, on Monday afternoon.

Thanks to you all for your efforts in selling the tickets.

We will announce the winners in next week's newsletter!
