A message from Kimberley

What a great start to the year we have had, with lots of sunny days, smiling faces and a hum of learning around our school and in our classes.

We are excited to begin a new year especially after last year which was a year of uncertainty. We are hopeful for a year full of experiences, sporting, cultural, community minded events and celebrations, along with everything in between.

I look forward to seeing you at our School Community evening On Monday 1st March – a relaxed event where you can meet your teachers, visit classrooms and catch up with staff and other families from our kura.


A notice was sent out this week in regards to our PAGE EARTHWORKS School Swimming Sports this Friday 26 February 2021.

This was also posted on our School Facebook page so check it out

School Lunches

Greerton Village School is provided with Healthy Kai in Schools

Each day your child will be provided with a healthy, Ministry of Health approved lunch, at no cost to you or the school.

They will be delivered daily in sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging which is 100% compostable.

The lunches are not just healthy, they are delicious and very kid friendly.

If your child has any food allergies or food intolerances can you please email

and this information will be passed on to Bay Catering.

Children can bring kai from home for morning tea, however fruit in schools and KidsCan snacks will still be available for all students.

Such an amazing initiative to be a part of. We are very thankful
