Waipipi School 2022

Term 3: Monday 19th September

Our vision: Waipipi Students are successful learners, who communicate

confidently, and interact positively with others.

The Trolley Derby is this Thursday.

A notice is coming home to competitors today with some extra information around the day's events.

Our community and extended community is invited to come along and watch the Trolley Derby. There will be space allocated to viewers behind the cones, on the grass bank.

Carparking may be an issue on the day. We ask that you leave the driveway connecting to the exit of the school carpark alone as the longest race will end up finishing there.


We will go ahead if it is showering. We will look at postponing the event if it is really nasty, such as thunder/lightning/continuous downpour.

There will be no access to the school's car-park after 8:30am.

All vehicles must be out of the car-park by 8:30am

Calf Club Chicken Diaries

Diaries are due back at school next Tuesday 27th September so that they can be given to the judge for marking.


Have emailed parent/caregivers your children's unique key code which will enable you to go online to view, and or purchase class and individual photos.

If you have not received ths code please contact Pam at school.

Rollerskate/blade Thursdays at lunchtime, will be on Wednesday for the next two weeks due to the Trolley Derby and Calf Club Indoor Exhibits.
