We are very appreciative of all the support and encouragement that you, as our school community provided in so many ways throughout 2021 e.g. the kind messages to me during the difficult decision-making of lockdown, your involvement in Learning Plan discussions both online and in person, fantastic sports team Coaches and Managers, the Junior Production helpers, our wonderful P.T.A. and B.O.T. members, our library volunteers, shelving/mending of literacy resources and many more. 

Also a very big ‘thank you’ to our school neighbours who always keep a ‘watchful eye’ on our buildings and grounds  when we are not on-site.

To any of you who are leaving our community, thank you so much for your contribution and we wish you well in your future. To our 142 Year 6 students, thank you for being such a great group of students during your time with us. Do keep in touch as we love hearing about your new learning journey and the fine young people you are growing into.

To our amazing families, inspiring staff and our students who are always our brightest ‘shining stars’ - I wish you a wonderful holiday break with your families. This is a very special blessed time for many in our community, may you celebrate the joy of the Christmas season with those you love.

I hope you manage to take some time to enjoy all that summer in New Zealand offers to us,  stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday 2nd February, 2022 when our students and families return to school.
