If your child brought books home that were unused or had minimal use please bring them to school with your child on the first day and we will see if we can use them.
All school stationery is purchased through the school at very cheap rates. Families are not required to purchase books ready for the new school year.
SHARE THE ROAD
We were fortunate enough to have an ex student - Richard Cook, arrange and assist with presenting the above programme. Please have a chat to your children about what they learnt and how to keep safe. With the increased volume of log trucks on the road, we hope that this program will help ensure the safety of the kids who live down the country roads where the logs are coming from.
Many thanks need to go to GJ Sole Transport Ltd for supplying the truck and driver, McCarthy Transport ltd for the presentation and guiding the kid’s through the truck, China Forestry Group NZ Ltd (Who own Te Wera forest) for supplying the vests and PF Olsen Ltd (who manage Te Wera forest) for arranging the day.
