THE RUN TO THE END OF THE YEAR

We have 15 days of school left until the end of the year.  For some students this time becomes quite problematic, especially after school with sometimes not the best of choices being made.  We ask all parents/caregivers to have the conversation with their son or daughter around making these last days very positive both at school and in our communities.  As a school we are proud of what we achieve with students and always want to finish the year positively.

 

TECHNOLOGY FEES

Thank you for those families who have now paid this fee.  We have the expectation of all technology fees being paid by the end of this year please!  Technology fees are $80 for the year.

WAINUIOMATA POOL DAY

The takes place on Thursday 30th November.  The subsidized cost is $5 due before Tuesday 28th November please.  There are still a number of students who have not returned their permission slip or the payment of $5.  This needs to be sorted this week.  This is a school-wide event where we expect to take most, if not all the students.
