Duffy Role Model Assembly

On Wednesday, the school had a visit from Silver Fern Samantha Winders, for our Duffy Role Model Assembly. Each child will be bringing home books to build their home library, thanks to our sponsor Nova Energy and Duffy Books in Homes.


Awesome to see so many parents & whānau come over to watch their tamariki play RIP. Kids are just enjoying participating and having fun.

Thank you to all our Coaches and parent support.

Here's what's happening at the Kawerau District Library

Whether your kid is a bookworm or a struggling reader, sharing a book with others is way more fun than reading solo!

So send them down to the library on the first Monday of each month for Tween Book Club.

Tween Book Club is a space for 8-12yr olds to talk about books, ask questions (about anything - be curious), and have fun with friends.

Tween Book Club members have no library fees or fines and they have a hand in collection development - which means they suggest new books and we buy them!

Hell Reading Challenge

The HELL Reading Challenge

The New Zealand Book Awards Trust have teamed up again with HELL Pizza to encourage school-age children (years 1-8) to read more. Their reading programme runs through schools and libraries nationwide.


· Every child/student must read 7 books to fill up their wheel to be able to receive their free 333 kids’ pizza from their local HELL store.

· There is no limit on the number of wheels a student can fill up between March and December, provided they are stamped and authenticated by a school teacher or librarian.

· The child/student must redeem their free pizza IN PERSON and before the expiry date, which is Monday 31 January 2022.

· Each pizza wheel will feature detailed rules and regulations, as well as a serial number that will be traced back to your school/library. We do this to ensure a high standard of conduct.
It’s our honour code!



You can register and run through your school or we can run or support through the Kawerau District Library.
