Week 3 Value of the week- Manawanui- Courtesy

The new hall entrance is looking amazing! 


Teacher Interviews

We received the most positive feedback from you as a community last week.  This is down to all of the hard work as a whanau, as a team of dedicated teachers, Learning Support Assistants, office staff, Alex, cleaners etc….  It takes a team to make a difference. The teachers loved meeting you and finding out more about your tamariki. Thank you.


PaFoT AGM – Thursday August 12th. 4.00pm School Staffroom.

“Did you know that the Parents & Friends of Te Huruhi is an incorporated society that operates independently from the school?

Each year it must hold an Annual General Meeting, and this year it is on Thursday, August 12th 4:00 – 5:00 pm. Any person with tamariki at the school is entitled to attend. 

The AGM will present the annual accounts, and discuss future plans for how the society hopes to evolve.

We would love to see some new faces! 


Te Huruhi School fundraiser: 

This year it is a casino theme.  

Lunchtime activities are scoring! 

Sport across school has increased at lunch times which is lovely to see; rugby, rippa, netball and football.  It is great that the older tamariki have got options for more things to do at lunchtime which has positive knock on effects.  

Te Huruhi rugby and rippa teams are going to the city this Thursday 12th. Thanks Kim, Alex and Fhi for going to the inner city sport event.  Sandra will be also starting a lunchtime digitech club soon too, more details to follow. 


Proud Enviro Moment

Miss T is taking a group of enviro agents for a tree planting day at Rangihoua on Wednesday 11th August from 12.00 pm-2.00 pm.  We can’t wait to see the photos and hear all about it. 


Trees and landscaping

Hopefully a pleasant surprise awaits us over the next couple of weeks as some trees that were kindly donated, will be planted either side of the main avenue in the courtyard.  The dry river bed and seating for an amphitheatre has been approved by the MOE and will also start to be built soon. Additional planting will also take place in some of the sections in the courtyard. Once we have more details we will let you know. 


House Day- Congratulations to kākāriki for winning the total team points in term 2.  We hope you enjoyed your time with all the fun activities? Thanks Mrs Holmes and Whaea Greta for running this.

Total Team Values Points so far in Term 3



Let’s hope that the cold south westerlies ease off soon and it is not so chilly for the rest of this week.  Please talk with your tamariki about what courtesy means to you all and how that can help us at Te Huruhi. It is more than just the p’s and q’s. Good luck to our rugby and rippa teams for Thursday.
