What a HUGE success Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all coming to support our school. We think we had over 1000 people come through our school to share our whanau night with us - great team work everyone! Watch our video above
During the Christmas holidays, there will be a lot of activity around the school.
Classroom Upgrades for Rooms 17 - 20 will begin
This means that Rooms 17 - 20 will be moving OUT of their rooms this term.
We have planned ahead to make the move as smooth as possible for everyone to ensure these classes are moved before the end of year, ensuring a smooth start to 2016
Painting the School will begin during the holidays also
The Admin block/Staffroom and the Exterior of the school will be completed by early Term One
Our Landscape Architect concept drawing will be completed by the end of year which will give us an idea of what is possible in upgrading the exterior environment to match the newly painted buildings.
The Landscape Architect's concept drawing has taken into consideration the Term 3 Inquiry Outcomes of "Can We Build It, YES WE CAN!"
The environment will certainly have some student voice included in the design, from the outcomes of our Inquiry from Term 3

Teachers Leaving in 2015
When teachers leave our family, it is always sad - but happy for them to be growing their careers.
Mrs Naomi Ezekiela has won a promotion position as Team Leader at Southern Cross Campus and leaves us this year to progress her career
Mrs Cecilia Down is leaving us to seek promotion positions on the North Shore of Auckland where she lives, to reduce travelling time getting to/from work daily
We will miss both of these lovely teachers We will farewell them on Tuesday 15th Dec @ 2pm in our hall
We are nearing the end of 2015
There are reports to write, prizegivings to organise, camp to attend, rooms to clear and shifts to make. We are almost fully planned for a great start to 2016
Thank you all parents and caregivers for the wonderful support you provide in so many ways - we certainly couldn't do the things we do without our wonderful home/school partnerships with our families and whanau
