Levin East School


Kia ora tātou,

I started writing this at school on Friday as I watched the amazing Showquest entries. Stunning. Simply stunning! I loved ours and also really enjoyed the Levin Intermediate production as well. A huge congratulations to the entire crew and cast for our first placing in the regional event. We are all very proud of you! We now look forward to the results of the national competition in July.

Next Monday, 13th June, we are running a swimming carnival for ALL YEAR 4 - 6 students which will include both fun events and competitive events. It will be a great session and we look forward to all children being involved - we do need more parents to make this happen. Please let us know if you can help and remind them to bring their togs and a towel.

Also next week, the 13th - 17th June is National Schools' Pride Week. We will again take this opportunity to celebrate the diverse range of children we have through some classroom-based activities. Please keep an eye out, especially on Hero, for the notice with more details.

Next week we also have our Scholastic Book Fair in the library. More details will be on Hero and our Facebook page (

On Monday 4th July we have a Teacher Only Day - school is closed for students. Throughout this day, between 10:00am and 5:00pm, we are holding 3-way conferences where you meet with your child and their teacher(s) so they can share their learning. We will also have some times available on Tuesday 5th July between 3:20 and 5:20pm. See the information below for the link to make a booking. Our goal is to see 100% of families.

Have a great week, and stay safe and well.

Spare Clothing

With the change of seasons upon us and the weather becoming colder and wetter it may pay for some students to have spare clothing in their bags for times of need.

Also, if you have any pants or trackies for children 8 and under that you could donate to us, we would really appreciate it.

Lunch Orders

If a parent/caregiver wishes their student to have a lunch order they must order and deliver it to the office themselves.

The shop no longer delivers orders to school nor are students allowed to collect from the shop at lunchtime.

Please drop in any orders to the office before 12.10pm and we will call the student over to collect it.


A reminder that the Board of Trustee elections are in September. If you are interested in the Board's work or in standing for the Board, please come in and see Mrs Barnard or Mrs Mulholland.
