Te Totara Primary School - Growing and Learning Together

End of Year Celebration - Tuesday 8th December at 5.45pm

This is our annual event to celebrate another great year at Te Totara.  Here is some information to help make it a special event:

  • It is a school event, so children need to be in a clean and tidy uniform and will be together as a school and are under the control of school staff.

  • Please leave your child with us; we will take care of them.

  • Students will need to stay through the whole event.

  • There will be very limited parking available at the school car park and none in the turning bay. 

  • It will be best to find a car park on a nearby street and walk.

  • It is like a concert in a park so bring a picnic, a rug to sit on, something to eat and drink and enjoy a variety concert.

  • We use the hill behind Ra & Earth as outdoor stages where children perform.

  • Toilets are open in the Ra and Earth blocks.

  • Pre-schoolers are welcome to use the playground away from the performers so they don’t distract from the performance.

  • Other children not involved in the school are asked to be respectful and if they want to play, then the court area is a good place. There are likely to be over 2500 people at the event so we strongly advise walking to the event.

  • Please NO umbrellas as it blocks the view of people behind. Low set chairs only are advisable if needed.

  • NO dogs are allowed on our school grounds.

  • We will have a “Paparazzi” section at the front for parents of those performing to use to get a good photo.

  • If the weather is not good, we will postpone to Wednesday 9th December 2020, same time.

  • Notifications will be put on the school Facebook page, school app and the website.

  • The event is weather dependent, so may be cancelled at the last moment, but we will do our best to let everyone know as early as possible.

  • At the end of the event, which should conclude by 7.30pm, we will need to stagger people leaving due to Health & Safety, so please be prepared to wait a little time. Announcements will be made to help.
