Thank you to Swim City and Stokes Valley Pools for supporting our swimming programme this term. Our students had their last swimming lesson today and we will be asking students and staff for feedback on this programme. One hundred students participated in swimming lessons this year, which is half of our school. We would like to find out what we can do to have more of our students participating

Lower Hutt will be hosting Wellington’s only Lego Show on September 14th and 15th at Lower Hutt Events Centre.It’s going to be bigger and better than any Lego show that has been held in the city before.
