Our End of Year celebration will be on Wednesday, 15th December. Due to COVID restrictions we will not be able to have parents sorry. We will endeavour to either video or livestream this. Weather permitting we will have it outside, but if it is wet, we will have the junior celebration first to allow the Year 4's to fly up, followed by the senior assembly for the Year 8's to fly away.
This will be held in school time, we will share more detail closer to the date - Let’s get camps done first!!

 Camps & EOTC Activities:  Still going ahead, next week Wednesday 8th - Friday 10th December. All information should be out as of today. Please make sure you fully understand where your child is going and what they are doing each day, and if not, please let us know.

Reminder that it is $30 for the Year 1 and Year 2 EOTC activities held at school.

Account number: 02 0608 0056520 00
Reference: Child’s Name
Code: EOTC

 2022 Classes:  You can now view your child's 2022 Class in the Hero app (see details below on how to install and login if you haven't already). Montessori classes remain the same unless the student is a Year 4 who will fly up to the senior hub. If for any reason you and your child’s circumstances are changing for next year PLEASE let us know and / or if you know about any children that may be attending SES next year please let us know.

Nga mihi

Thank you so much to our South End community for helping us Pack the Bus!

 HERO:  Is our new School management System. It is vital that all families hook up to Hero so that we can communicate with you. As we get up and running you will be able to see your child and their learning progress. There are also features such as sending an absence (that gets sent directly to the class roll) and viewing medical room visits. When making an account on the Hero app please use the same email you have registered with the school (so it links to your child/ren), if you would like to update your email address please email us at and tell us your email address + the student profile to attach it to. click here for more information: Hero.
On Thursday last week our Road Patrollers went to Masterton as a Thank You to them for giving up their time to keep our students safe crossing the road. High Street has become so busy so this is not an easy job, but one they do well with support of parents and staff.

Manaia Simons was awarded the Partoller of the Year - congratulations Manaia!
