Welcome Nau mai, haere mai, to all of our new families who began this week. We look forward to working alongside you in order to give each child the best education we can. Our teachers welcome your comments and support.
NEWSLETTERS are sent home fortnightly, please note the dates as to when Newsletters will be given to your child/children :-
TERM 2: Thursday 18th June, Thursday 2nd July
Second Hand Uniforms: We have a few school Jerseys for sale, mainly smaller sizes. Please see the office if you are interested. They are $10 each.
Car parks: Are for STAFF only. I cannot stress how dangerous it is to have parents driving into the school grounds to drop off or collect children. Please walk in—we would be delighted to see you and greet you. In cars—often—small children are “invisible” and drivers cannot see properly when reversing - so please help us prevent a possible tragedy by adhering to the rules. They are rules for our children’s safety
New classroom: Construction has begun on Room 23 and we hope it will be ready before the end of term 2.
Breakfast: It is important for all, especially children, to have a breakfast. Sometimes that might not happen due to various circumstances—we have some limited supplies of muesli bars/fruit that we can offer on these occasions. Your child should simply, quietly, and in confidence, ask their teacher.
Golden Rule: Be responsible for your actions
Tylar, Room 22
New entrants can be ENROLLED at any time, however, we prefer them to begin school on Tuesday morning ONLY, so that Mrs Trafford (New Entrant Teacher) can speak with parents and ensure a smooth entry to school for children.
OPEN MORNINGS for all four year old children and their parents

PAI (Papakura Achievement Initiative):
Our teachers have been working hard through the Papakura Achievement Initiative which involves a lot of after school meetings for Professional Development, as well as top, well known educators working alongside us at school. Our aim is to drive up our children’s achievement.
Please talk to your kids and find out the exciting things they are learning.
School Uniform is compulsory and expected to be worn clean and tidily each day. This gives our children a sense of “BELONGING” and being prepared to learn...
