She is a tortiseshell kitten, approx 6mths old and very friendly. She has no microchip so we are trying to locate her owner. 


The vet can only keep her for one more day before handing her over to the SPCA.

Shade Structure Blessing – Thursday 6 May @ 2pm

Tue May 04 12:50pm

4th May 2021


Kia ora parents, family, whanau,


I am sure that you have noticed the dynamic new shade structure over our roadside netball court. It has been fascinating for us as a school, as well as the community to watch the process of the structure being built to its completion. Our structure has had the final check-off and is now complete! This area will provide shelter and shade throughout the whole year for sports teams practices, team huis, school sport, break time play, concerts and more.


We would like to invite you to attend a Blessing Ceremony this Thursday 6th May at 2pm. The ceremony will involve a karakia, Kapa Haka waiata, and an opening speech.  Students will be seated in their class groups under the structure.


We hope you and join us and look forward to seeing you there.


Ngā mihi nui,


Carla Veldman / Principal  

REMINDER – Safety Notice

Sun May 02 06:12pm

Our school grounds open to students at 8:15am. This means school classrooms and playgrounds are closed until this time.   


We are concerned about the safety of children that are arriving at the school gates as early as 7:45am unsupervised.   A safe option is that children attend Premium Kids Care, PKC, in the hall or you make other arrangements for your children to be supervised until school opens at 8:15am.  To contact PKC, please call Ayla – 021 250 5363 or email Rochelle [email protected] to book a place.
