Dear parents, caregivers, students and friends of the school. Tena koutou katoa. Nga mihi nui ki a koutou katoa,

Road Patrol training was completed yesterday.  We are very pleased with how well the crossing is working. Thank you to all parents who model the desired behaviour by using the crossing.  A few drivers are entering the carpark at the 'wrong' gate.  If everyone used  the suggested entry and exit gates as depicted in the picture below, we would ensure one direction of traffic in the carpark. This would improve safety.

House T-Shirt orders must be received by tomorrow, Friday 15 February.  Download an order form.  Request a paper copy, state the sizes you need  Ask the  office to tell you what house your child(ren) is/are in.     Place your order online now

Thank you to Mrs Becky Causebrook who approached The Tyre Shop about our seat project.  
Looking ahead, we have wheels day on 20th of February. Kurt Maxwell from Auckland Transport will work with our leaders to set up a bike course. There is no charge for this. See flier below.
Motorcycling New Zealand will be paying us a visit
22 Feb (Friday) @ 1.55pm on the school field.
They will be doing a demonstration and a Q & A session.  The aim of this is to promote their sport.  We know that we have few motocross enthusiasts at school who will enjoy the opportunity to interact with the team.

Have you changed your personal details over the holidays, perhaps your cellphone, address or emergency contact details?  In the event of an emergency or if your child's teacher would like to contact you, it is important that we have the correct information .  We would be grateful if you could advise the school office please by either ringing (09 2361012) or email    Many thanks.

One of our foci this term is manners and respect. I simply have to rave about the beautiful manners and respect our students show when using the crossing and throughout their school day. It is a hallmark of our school, that students are caring, kind and respectful. Keep up the good work team.

Kind regards,
