Roll Return Day - Monday 2nd March

Twice a year the Ministry of Education requires schools to complete an official roll count of students enrolled at our school. This is an important process as our future funding and staffing is calculated on these numbers. Monday 2nd March is the next official roll count day. If your child, or children are away on Monday 2nd March please send a brief note explaining their absence (e.g. sickness, appointment, home circumstances etc.) This is to assure the Ministry of Education that we have the exact number of students that we say we have.
