Kia ora whānau
As this is the last pānui for 2021, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for supporting the school throughout the year.
To those students and families who are leaving the school, we hope that you remember your time at Rātā Street, fondly. To the Year 6 students who are moving on to Intermediate next year, we wish you every success for the future. Please don’t forget to come back and visit us!
We wish you a safe and happy holiday break.
We warmly welcome Sebastian Luamanu-Toka to Rātā Street School.
