Our Cluster Cross Country is being held tomorrow. All children need to be picked up from School at 12pm, and transported to Waianiwa School by their own parents/caregivers.  

The course is at Waianiwa School. Parents are asked to park at the Waianiwa Hall and to please walk to the school from there.  There will be food for sale from their PTA.

All children need to bring their own full water bottle to drink from, as there will be no water available on site.

 If your child needs an inhaler, they are to carry this in their pocket for the event.

Children are to wear their Sports Uniform and sneakers, and to bring a jacket, a change of shoes/clothes to wear home.  

Spectators are advised to wear warm clothes and  gumboots.  The forecast for tomorrow is for cloudy/rainy weather and around 9 degrees, so it will be chilly.  

At the completion of the event, children are free to go home.

We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow, cheering your children on for their race.

A huge thank you to everyone who has supplied items for our Easter Raffle.  If you would still like to do so, please send items to school today. 

Thanks also for all the tickets that have been sold so far.  All Raffle cards and money need to be at school by 3pm today.

The Raffle will be drawn tomorrow.



The Junior Class (Ruma Papa) and the Middle Class (Ruma Awa) will be using Seesaw.

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.

Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.


Download the app or open Seesaw here.
