School Feels Like School

posted in: News

We feel like a school again!

It was awesome to have all our wonderful tamariki back at school last week, without them school is just a collection of empty buildings sitting in wait.

Our tamariki have had a positive transition back into school and have clearly missed their friends, they are really enjoying the social aspect of their schooling as they slowly settle back into the structure and routines of the learning programmes. Learning Doesn't Stop at Graduation

Once again thank you for your support during the Lock-downs.  Even though this year has been disruptive we are so impressed with how our students’ learning is progressing. Let’s hope there are no more interruptions so we can finish our school year on a positive note.  We are still planning for end of year events including the Year 6 and Nga Purupura Akoranga Graduation Celebrations, however they might take on a different form depending on the Alert Levels at the time. Also, event planning is being completed closer to the event dates to try and make sure the right decisions are being made.  As always our first priority will always be the health, well-being and consideration of our community.

It is really great to see parents wearing masks at drop off and pick up time. Thank you for the way you have responded to the Alert Level 2.5 procedures. 


  • The QR code for the COVID Tracing App is located on the gates, office and Akoranga Space doors / windows.
  • Our drinking fountains have been turned off so please ensure your tamariki has a drink bottle.

Spring is trying to arrive which means summer could be just around the corner and that means swimming is on the horizon – this might be a good time to dust off the swimming togs.  Alex is going to spend the next school holidays preparing the pool, fingers crossed everything has survived the surrounding demolition works.

With only 3 weeks left of Term 3 it’s time to start the search for your for your wide brimmed sunhat. Check the wardrobe, under the bed, bottom of the washing basket and all the of the other hidey-holes.  I found mine the other day crumbled, bent and out of shape in the bottom of our hat box!

Remember, wide brimmed sunhats are compulsory during Term 1 and 4.
