Te Totara Primary School - Growing and Learning Together


The Fun Library

Our new Te Totara Times reporters, Jasleen and Emma, asked a few Neptune 28 students about reading and the library.


Pirates of the Curry Bean

We are so proud of all the students who took part in our fantastic school production at the end of Term 3.  A big thank you to all the parents and teachers who worked tirelessly behind the scenes.  Mrs Pratt has taken some wonderful photos of the production and put them on our Facebook page, you can have a look at them here.


Dean, James, Caleb and Mrs Morgan have also created a "behind the scenes" video.  Great work guys!

Spelling Success

On Saturday 13 September four of our students represented Te Totara at the Great Waikato Spelling Bee.  There were around 230 students and 58 schools in the event. 
Cooper W came first in the Year 5 section and third overall (including the Year 6 students).  He won a medal and some prize money.  Congratulations Cooper!
The superb results from each of our students - Jordana, Cooper J, Anna and Cooper W - meant that we were also the winning school in the primary competition.  We received $200 prize money, a trophy and each of the students got a medal.  Well done spellers!  We are proud of your efforts.

 Ra Houses

If you've been in the Ra pod recently you will have seen the amazing work being done on creating model houses.  Our Te Totara Times reporters have explained what is going on.
