Newsletter - Term 2, Week 1

Friday, 6th May 2022


As we move into the winter months its a timely reminder for all our children to be wearing their school vests to and from school. This is particularly important in the mornings when the visibility for our drivers isn’t the best. If you need to purchase a new vest this can be done through the school office.

Senior Camps

All the best to the senior camps who head away next week. Our Year 5/6 children are travelling to Camp Columba and our Year 7/8 children are heading to Bluff and Omaui. I look forward to hearing about all the exciting activities that the students will be taking part in next week. Look out in the up-coming newsletters of photos of the students enjoying their camp experience.

Breakfast in Schools

We are looking to start Breakfast in Schools again in a few weeks. This is a very popular service that we provide and we look forward to seeing all our regulars there. More information will come out shortly about when this begins.

Room 3 loved experimenting with density with Sue the Scientist on Wednesday this week. We made anemometers to measure wind speed and discovered what chromatography was and watched it in action. We had a great day and learnt a lot of new scientific vocabulary too.


A great first week back to Term 2 for Room 6 tamariki. We are learning that if we put in the mahi (work) we get the play (takaro).

Lots of friendly Tau things happening, as well as Active Tau - getting outside and making the most of this good weather we have been having. Room 6 have done some wonderful work writing about their holidays and showing off their learning to Mrs Morris, now that I am back from maternity leave.
