Kia ora tātou,

Aue, what a chilly morning, but what a beautiful day.

I want to congratulate our newly elected Board of Trustees who will govern our kura for the next 3 years. Congratulations to Zoe Clement, Hariata Wooler, Harley Tawhara, Rose Murray and Clark Sanson. I would also like to thank Mr Sean Turner and Mr Ben Skudder for the amazing amount of time, guidance and support they have provided over their time on the Board. We are really fortunate to have and have had such strong and supportive Boards. The new Board have their first meeting on Monday 19th September 2022.

Last week our Year 6 students enjoyed a day at Levin Intermediate. They had a fantastic time (as the photos show).

Today we headed off to Levin School for our first Interschool Rugby game, it was a lovely day and the children played and behaved well. This is just one of many activities and events coming up in the next few weeks. We love seeing our tamariki involved in so many things. I thank you all for your support.

Kia pai tō wiki.
