Te Totara Primary School - Growing and Learning Together



 Curriculum Reports

Anne Fraser, our Deputy Principal, regularly presents reports on major units of work to our Board of Trustees.  These are available for you to view on the curriculum reports page of our website.
The latest report covers the Visual Arts unit that was completed at the end of 2013 - Report on Student Achievement - Visual Arts T4 2013.  It includes our Art Exhibition.

Te Totara Times

We have launched a school blog which is written by some of our senior students.  Their aim is to share the learning and events that are happening around our school.  To see their first two posts on the gala and the Ra team car wash, click here.


PTA Donation

Look what happened at our PTA meeting last night!  Ryan Hamilton (PTA chairman) presented Brian Sheedy with a cheque for $25,000!  This will go towards the swimming pool and extra playground shading.  This money has been raised from chocolate sales, quiz night, disco, sausage sizzles and other activities over the past couple of years, so thank you to everyone who contributed.

School Gala

What a fantastic gala put on by our wonderful PTA, staff and students.  A big thanks to our local business community and to everyone who gave their time to help run the event.  We raised around $15,000 for a new playground.  Mrs Pratt has made a video of the day:

Here are some more photos of the event.

Tui Ridge Photos

Thanks to the parents and staff who went to Tui Ridge we have lots of photos from our Year 5/6 camps.  Here are some from Earth and from Ra.
