Weekly Notices

Welcome to Week 4 Term 1. Starting Monday 19 February. Please visit our 'Latest Newsletter' and 'Community Newsletter' on our website.

Current notices are listed below. Old notices from the last month (if any) are listed below them.

Roll Return Day - Friday 1 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. 

Friday 1st March is the next official roll count day. 

If your child, or children are away on Friday 1st March, please send a brief note or email, 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.

Iceblock Friday's

Ice blocks for sale every Friday morning tea time.
