13th September: Zone Cross Country

This will be organised by Manaia Primary

We will organise a notice for parents once we have completed our in school cross country to select students for the Zone Cross Country Event




News Flash

The Cubhouse and The Den have been so successful that other classes wanted to have their own identity as part of the PRIDE Programme

Room 11 and 12 are now "The Watering Hole"

Room 8 is "The Sahara"

Room 1 and 4 are the "Panthera Zone"

"Panthera" is the genus of chiefly large cats that includes the snow leopard, tiger, leopard, jaguar, and lion, most having the ability to roar. A suitable name for the oldest students in our school.
