Term 4, Week 9 - 2018

Congratulations to all our learners recognised at our prize-giving on Wednesday evening. It was lovely to celebrate the successes of so many of our tamariki - and also exciting to recognise the student leadership team of 2019.

My ‘hugest’ thanks to everyone who helped out with the shopping, cooking and serving of food, and tidying up after the carnival. What a fabulous success the evening was. Special thanks to Tabitha Prisk who shouldered a large portion of the co-ordination this year - you are amazing!

Sincere thanks to ASB who have supported this year’s Christmas Carnival by providing everything (including the person power) for the sausage sizzle stall. We are very appreciative of this support.


ALL sports uniforms are due back to school urgently thank you. Please return these to your whānau teacher. We will need to invoice parents ($70.00) for any uniforms outstanding at the end of next week.
Thank you so much to everyone who has already washed and returned their uniform.

Term 4, Week 6 - 2018

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the support you have shown us as we come to terms with Mr Pouniu’s passing. As many of you will know, Drew was a ‘larger than life’ man, he exuded passion and positivity for education in general and the Performing Arts and ICT in particular, A real ‘people’ person, Drew will be hugely missed by us all.

We truly appreciate our school community’s messages of support, baking, flowers, coffee and the understanding!

Drew’s wife and young son (along with all his whānau) are very much in our thoughts as they grieve the loss of a truly remarkable person.

We have all been much richer for the time Drew was in our lives.
