Our delicious ‘family pie’ and ‘lamington’ fundraiser is underway. Our supplier is Rosebowl Bakery in Feilding.
Your child came home with an order form at the end of last term. Let us know urgently if you need another one
by contacting the office. Those of you who are able to get multiple orders - thank you! Please have
friends/family either pay cash or pay into your bank account and you then send one payment into the school
account. Orders close on Monday, so this is a last call.
We have received ‘random’ payments from people who are not using any reference details that can help us
identify who the order is for, so please follow the instructions above.
There will be prizes for our top sellers, so let’s see if we can make this a really good fundraising event.
We also ask that anyone who has excess paper supermarket bags, please send them to school for the PTA (and
helpers) to pack pie orders into. Do let us know if you can help the PTA pack up orders on the afternoon of the
26th May. Thanks for your help with this.

Welcome to Term 2 - I trust everyone enjoyed the long weekends and wonderful weather over the term break.
It’s great to have lots more children back at school and we are optimistic about being able to offer a ‘more normal’ term
where the tamariki can interact with others across the school and participate in all our usual events.
While we await any new instructions, we are following MOE’s strong recommendation that everyone in Years 4 and above
(and all adults) wear masks indoors. Thank you for your ongoing support.

It has been very special to be able to farewell and then welcome back our Year 5 and 6 students who have been
at camp at the Makahika Outdoor Pursuit Centre over this week. While it was ‘touch and go’ with numbers around
people affected by COVID, we have managed to provide fantastic experiences and memories for most of the
My sincere thanks to
a) my staff who have put MANY hours into the planning and implementation of the camps
b) other staff who have covered classes, duties etc to support those away
c) the fabulous band of parents/caregivers who gave freely of their time to act as camp parents
d) our fantastic school Board and PTA who supported the camp and earned grants (or donated funds) that
made the experience more affordable for families
Without you all, this could not have happened. I’d also like to thank the school community who have been so
supportive of us proceeding in these challenging times - we needed you to be ‘on board’ and in favour of going
