School donations will be changing slightly in 2020 as there are new guidelines from the Ministry of Education about donations for schools and the inclusivity of activities for our tamariki during the school year. This has been sent to all whānau and will feature on our ‘Donations and Activity Fee’ tab under the ‘For Parents’ tab on this website. Thank you for your support and your contributions for our donations. We would not be able to operate our school without this contribution from parents.
School Admin Block Refurbishment
Our Admin Block refurbishment is continuing in 2020. The Ministry Of Education, Hampton Jones, MIRO construction, Architects, Board, staff and other stakeholders have been involved in the process to get this up and running since 2016. There is now a very large space between the administration block and the Kohanga Reo where two classrooms have been removed. We will update you on the development of this area later this term. The refurbished administration block is now delayed and will not be completed by the April holidays as proposed. We will continue to update our community on this. Any queries please contact Deepak Wadhwani on 0277003922 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The temporary office is on Douglas street. Please follow the signs.

If your child is absent contact the office with the child’s name, class and reason why they are absent.

Drop off and pick up of students
We have had some concerns from staff and parents about the drop off and pick up of children. Please ensure you are not double parking or parking illegally when coming to the school to drop off or pick up your child/children. This may cause incidents involving our children and families so please be mindful of others when parking around the school.
Our online school calendar (at the bottom of this page) will be updated regularly and please read the newsletter as this will have updated information. Notify the school office if you are not receiving these.
