A message from the Principal
Kia ora tatou, Mālō e lele, Ann yeong haseyo, Ni hao, Dzień dobry
Unfortunately the weather gods are not in our favour today for the planned Christmas Concert this evening. Our grounds are also pretty wet from the heavy rain we have had of late, preventing our fields from being a dry picnic mat spot for the concert. With this in mind we have made the call to postpone our Christmas Concert to the Savaday which in next Wednesday 7th December. We look forward to seeing you all at our Christmas concert next Wednesday.
What else is happening next week?
