A quick update for COVID-19, what an up and down time it is at present. We don't have a huge amount of positive cases. We do have lots isolating, choosing to home learn and some sick with other illnesses that are in the air at present. So;

  1. Please let us know if your child is positive and if you need help in any way while isolating / sick,
  2. In the meantime we continue to keep everyone safe here at school, continuing to sanitize, scan and social distance where possible. 

Compulsory Conferences: A huge thank you to all who attended, whether through face to face, zoom or phone for the conferences last week. Please ensure that if for some reason this didn't happen, that you contact your child’s teacher. It is imperative and vital that parents / caregivers are fully aware of where you can help your child in THEIR learning journey.

Fun Celebration: You will have seen on our Facebook page how much fun we had last week celebrating the closing of our pool. There was something for everyone to enjoy - the highlight though had to be getting hosed by Robin!!

Stay safe - be kind

What's Happening?

 Veranda  Yippee - the veranda outside Rimu has finally been completed, such a great asset (this has been on the table to do for 4 years!)

 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.
Dates for your Calendar:

05 Tue - Year 5 - Year 8 Bat & Ball Day
14 Thu - End of Term 1


During the summertime: Compulsory Hats. No hat, No play! Please make sure that your child has a sun smart hat in their bag to use each day. We have a supply of school hats for sports days ONLY. For health reasons we need children to supply their own NAMED, SUN SMART hat.


We are a Water Only School. We encourage all students to have a water bottle with them at school. If a child brings another type of drink to school the teachers will take the drink off them and give it back at the end of the day, to take home.
