‘Te Kura o Tūpuni’

We have a lot coming up between now and the end of term so I thought I would take some time to outline these for you all.


This week we have our annual school Walk-a-thon fundraiser. This will be held at Waltham Park between 1.15 and 2.45pm on Tuesday 30th March. We are really looking forward to this, having not been able to complete this event last year. Our previous walk-a-thon raised enough money to upgrade our basketball and netball hoops along with the marking of the courts and the four square blocks, so it will be exciting to see what we can do this time around. Thank you to everyone for getting in behind your children and supporting them with this great event. We would really appreciate it if all sponsorship money could be handed in to the school office by the last Friday of Term. There will be a special prize for the class with the most returned cards and money returned by this day (16th April)


Our Easter Raffle will be drawn Thursday 1st April in a special Assembly in the afternoon. Tickets will be sold up until 8.55am on Thursday morning. Thank you to everyone who has donated items and/or purchased a ticket.


Please note that our Easter Break is from Friday 2nd April up to Tuesday 6th April. (This means School will be closed on Friday the 2nd April and will reopen for students on Wednesday 7th April).


We have our 3-Way Learning Conferences coming up as soon as we return from Easter Break. These will be held on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th April. Bookings are open for these now (all the booking information went home with students on Thursday). If you have any problems booking online please contact the office.


Term 1 Finishes - Friday 16th April at 2.45pm


Term 2 Starts - Monday 3rd May at 8.55am


Early in Term 2 we will be having a Teacher Only Day - this will be on Monday 24th May 2021. School will be closed for all students on this day.


Thank you all for your ongoing support.
