Term 1, Week 10 - 2022

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 tamariki.

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 ahead.
