Entries for November 2015


Week 7 - Term 4

Thank you very much to everyone who came and supported the athletics sports on Monday. Our thanks to Reece Hawkins and Dean Parsons for their great organisation. Congratulations to all the children who ‘strived to be the best they could be’.
A team of senior athletes have now been selected to represent us next Tuesday 1st Dec at the interschool event at the Massey track. Permission slips and transport help offers should by now be back at school.

Week 6 - Term 4

We are in the final stages of planning our layout for 2016 and have some exciting changes to look forward to. The Year 0-2 areas of the Tararua team will be located in Rooms 1/2/3/4/5/6 and 7 - Ruma Rima (5) will be our brand new class and will form part of a new kete with Ruma Ono (6) and Whitu (7) once the building is complete. Year 3 learners will be in Te Kete Manawa TKM; Year 4/5 will be in Te Kete Aronui (TKA) and the Year 5/6 kete will be over on the ‘island’ in the soon to be developed Te Kete Tangaroa or TKT!

This makes logical sense as we progress in an anticlockwise direction from our youngest learners around to the eldest.
Some of the building and modifications will not be undertaken until school finishes, so there will be changes over the holiday period.
