Our School News

A huge thank you to the many many parents and whanau who have helped out in school over the past few weeks. We have had a tremendous turn out of parents and whanau to assist with completing our "Cubhouse Village."

Thanks to parents and whanau who gave so generously of your time to help out with setting up for the MOA Awards. You guys were AMAZING.

Copies of student MOA Entries are being uploaded onto the website (see separate tab) We are so proud of our student and teacher efforts and successes. Well done everyone.

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.
