Entries for February 2020


Term 1, Week 3 - 2020

Today we take over the interior of the other two rooms in TKW. Exciting! This means from early next week Mrs Orr’s tamariki will be learning in their new classroom – Waka! Mrs Blay will soon be joining Mrs Orr in this space as she starts our second New Entrant class for this year.
It also means that the staffroom can again be our staffroom!

Work is ongoing with the deck area outside TKW. This is scheduled to take another 6 to 7 weeks to complete.

Term 1, Week 2 - 2020

Last night’s pool party was really well attended and lots of fun. Thanks so much to everyone who came and ‘met and mingled’ and enjoyed the evening.

Special thanks to aPlus for their sponsorship of the sausage sizzle last night too. Much appreciated!

Term 1, Week 1 - 2020

A very warm welcome to 2020 to everyone. A special welcome to our new staff, learners and whānau. We are confident that you will all feel supported to be an integral part of our school community in no time at all!
Our first inquiry focus school wide is ‘Turangawaewae’ - Understanding Where I Stand. Term 1 is always action packed with summer activities including water safety skills, EOTC camps for Years 4 - 6 learners, settling into new routines etc.

It is fantastic to have half of TKW ( Te Kete Wakahuia) completed (inside at least). We are hopeful that Mrs Orr and Mrs Blay’s rooms will be ready before the end of this month. The builders can then focus on completing the deck outside these rooms.
