A HUGE congratulations to Mrs Flaus and her fantastic jump-jam team consisting of Izzy, Annabelle, Ella, Mila, Oscar O, Hamish, Amelia and Belle. The 'dream team' won third place in the senior division for the week's Strictly Jump Jam competition. What an amazing result - especially as it was the Year 4 - 8 grade. As well as the overall third placing the team was awarded an excellence certificate for Presentation and a merit for Technical Execution. 

This was a richly deserved success following loads of hard work on behalf of you all.

The PTA and student council have put lots of effort into making sure tonight's disco is loads of fun for everyone. 

We look forward to seeing you all here - Years 1 - 3 from 5.00pm to 6.00pm and Years 4 - 6 from 6.15pm to 7.30pm.

PLEASE NOTE: The children must be collected from the hall by an adult. For safety reasons, we will not release children to 'meet' a parent/caregiver waiting in a vehicle. 

Thanks very much to everyone who has helped with organisation, preparation and implementation - a great team effort!

On Monday Miss Bisset accompanied our student council, school ambassadors and house leaders to the National Young Leaders day that was held here in Palmerston North. Our young leaders got to hear the motivational journey that has guided some of today’s successful leaders.

Our student leadership group (very ably led by Miss Bisset) is a really active and busy team. Between them, they run lunchtime activities, support charities, conduct tours of our school, present at assemblies, assist the PTA with fundraising, lead house sports and meetings and much more. Thanks to each of you for your service to our school and tamariki. ‘Ka mau te wehi’ student leaders.
