Kia ora koutou Te Kura o Taitonga

A very warm welcome back to everyone for Term 3 - lots to look forward to in the next 10 weeks. I hope everyone had a restful holiday and is excited to be back.

Update: Carol Pilcher will be in for the first two weeks of this term covering for me while I recover from an operation in the holidays. Most of you will know Carol from her time with us last year. 

A special welcome to our six new students and their families who have joined us this term.

Hopefully the general winter illnesses and COVID cases start to ease for us this term. A reminder that we have a supply of RAT tests and masks (both adult & child sizes) in the school office, please let us know if you would like any for home. 

There are a few important dates coming up this term so please scroll down and place these in your calendars.

Stay safe - be kind

School Books

Could you please check home, under beds, in the back of wardrobes for any school books. We are missing quite a few junior readers and would love to have them returned for future use 🙂 thank you!

 HERO:  Is our 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.


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.
