End of Week 3 Term 2 Pānui

Wow what a change in weather since the last time I wrote to you all. We have been hit with plenty of rain out here meaning that our kids haven’t always been able to get outside during break times. But they breed them tough in the country right? So as I have communicated to you, we encourage ‘Rainy Day Play’ as long as kids have a change of clothes and a waterproof jacket, so they aren’t in wet clothes for the rest of the day.

Gosh what a beautiful week weather wise we have had up here. It’s like Turitea has its own little eco-climate! Perfect weather for our training for Cross Country coming up in Week 4. The kids train Monday, Wednesday and Friday and it is great to see them pushing themselves and improving their fitness.


End of Week 1 Term 2 Pānui

Hoping this finds you all doing very well. This is your final friendly reminder that school closes at 12.30pm this coming Wednesday 11th May for our Learning Conferences. We are looking forward to having you back on site as they are a great way to reconnect with your child’s kaiako and set some goals/outcomes for the rest of the term.


Welcome Back to Term 2 Pānui

Looking forward to starting the new term off with a hiss and a roar this coming Monday. Now that our restrictions around masks and having you onsite have been lifted, it would be nice to have you come for a chat with any of us.


End of Term 1 Pānui

We’ve made it to the end of term! What a term it has been too with not being able to do things how we usually would. The shift to Orange overnight means school life appears to be moving in the way of ‘normal’ again. We can’t wait to get back to having school singing and assemblies again embracing our school value of whanaungatanga


End of Week 10 Pānui 2022

Kia ora e te whānau, I write you this pānui whilst in isolation as Covid has finally affected my household. Luckily it hasn’t hit us too badly, but it has kept me at home this week if you had noticed that I wasn’t around. The powers of technology though with me still being able to keep up with what has been happening in the classrooms through Seesaw


End of Week 9 Pānui 2022

l well at the end of another fantastic week! If you’ve been up to school lately you might have noticed the school is looking pretty sharp! This is massive thanks to the whānau who rocked up last weekend for our Beautification Day. I can’t thank you all enough for helping out.


End of Week 8 Pānui 2022

It has been great to see so many kids back this week and I’m pleased that all our teaching staff are out of isolation now too. Gosh, it has taken its toll on our community and affected over half of our school! For those who are still unwell, Kia piki tō ora (get well soon).


Beautification Day this Saturday!

We have a bunch of jobs that need doing and we’d love you to come along and give us a hand this Saturday 26th March, while catching up with some of the other members in our community.


End of Week 7 Pānui 2022

Just wanted to commend you all on your compassion and empathy in getting through this current world climate, as it hasn’t been an easy time for a lot of families.
