Term 2

May 2 2022

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Dear Parents and Caregivers, Nga mihi nui koutou

I hope the holidays were a great opportunity to spend quality time with your children. We have a busy term ahead and it starts today with a special visit from a world recognised MX Rider Mr Josh Coppins visiting school today.

Term 2 is starting to get a bit colder and hats are not required. We recommend a warm top and also slippers are allowed inside as we will be firm about wet and muddy shoes being left outside of the rooms.

You are welcome to join us inside the school gates now. We just ask you to consider wearing a mask as another level of protection for the children and staff.

Now that we can all get together we will be looking at some parent meetings to talk about curriculum, communication and our new normal. Please keep an eye out in the notices and online so you can attend these important events to inform us and learn from us as well.


The Jubliee is now on Labour weekend in October 2022. Please start to book your interest.

Pink Slips

The staff are awarded Pink slips to acknowledge support they have offered each other. These slips can also be presented by students and parents if a staff member has helped you. This small recognition keeps a culture of support ticking along in the school. They are available in the school office.

Full School Assembly Friday May 6th

We welcome you to our first full school assembly for term 2. This will be at 2.15pm on Friday and it will be a great chance to welcome new pupils and reflect on the start of term 2. Please mark it in your calendar.
