Please help if you can - our PTA are busy parents just like you - they deserve our support as their fundraising benefits ALL children at our school.

Term 4, Week 1 - 2018

Welcome to Term 4 everyone and a very special welcome to the 12 new students who have started at our school this term. We are confident you will all quickly feel welcome and happy to be part of Team Hokowhitu. If anything isn’t clear to you at any stage (we sometimes forget that new people are not always aware of things that we consider ‘usual operating procedures’) PLEASE ask us. There is no such thing as a silly question, just something that you are not yet familiar with. Don’t forget there is no school this Monday 22nd October due to the Labour Day holiday.

We also welcome Miss Stacey Tayler in her new role. Stacey has had a fixed term contract with us for the second half of this year (to teach in TKT last term and in TKM this term), however she has also been appointed to a permanent teaching position at our school from the beginning of 2019. Congratulations Stacey - it’s great to have you as part of our permanent team.
