Patumahoe School 02nd June 2021


Kia ora everybody

I hope you enjoyed the Dance Show last Friday. I was absolutely blown away by the number of families and friends who turned up.The Cloud proved its worth as an outdoor venue, with capacity to host a very large number at the end of year prizegiving. Once again thank you to Jeremy Lamb for taking on the official photography duties. Thank you all for coming along, the kids went to another level with a big audience.

A reminder that this Friday is a TEACHER ONLY DAY so there will be no school and next Friday the 11th is our Grandparents Morning.

I am away with the seniors at soccer in Tuakau today. We hope to bring back some good results.

Enviro Group’s Trip to Oete Goat Farm

The Enviro Group is part of the Trees for Survival programme which is a charitable trust that works with schools and local communities to grow and plant native trees along waterways.

This environmental programme provides an opportunity for our children to make a practical difference to their environments.

We managed to plant 840 native plants at Oete Goat Farm.

We would like to thank our parents and grandparents for kindly giving up their time to help with transport and planting on the day. Without your support we would not have been able to achieve this outstanding result.


Patumahoe School is a drop off station for The Jammies in June initiative created by Middlemore Hospital. They are asking for the following Items

  • New PJs that they can give sick children

  • Pre Loved PJs that have no rips or stains that they can give to the community

  • Knitting of baby clothes to give to newborn babies.

We will be having a fundraiser later in June but if you have any items that fit the above description and would like to donate, please bring them to school. We will be taking them up to Middlemore hospital early July.
