Entries for July 2018


Term 3, Week 1 - 2018

Welcome to Term 3 everyone! A special welcome to the four new pupils who have started at our school this week, and of course, Mrs Redley (Office Manager) and Miss Tayler (teacher in TKT). We are confident that you will each enjoy your time at our friendly, respectful and collaborative school. 


This term's inquiry focus across the school is 'He Waka Eke Noa' - this loosely translates into 'teamwork' and 'we are all in this together'. How apt this is when you consider that we have your Major Production performance to prepare for the 6th September 2018.
