Keeping Connected to Change

In our attempt to make sure everyone is informed about what is going on at school, we have the following methods of comunication-

- our school App (details of which are on this website)

- our school Bulletin, which is sent home weekly, via the App or via email

- team and class newsletters, which come home at the beginning of each term

and of course, our school website.

A New Year, A New School

2016 has got off to a busy start and we are all now housed in our temporary accommodation.  The storage has been sorted and this abnormal situations as become....well, normal.

Our students have adapted to the smaller play area and everyone is slowing getting use to where things are temporarily placed.  There is less of 'which building is that??' and also less of the 'I wouldn't have a clue where that is stored'.

We appear in the NZ Herald today...

There was an article today in the Herald, regarding our leaky school containing information that was not confirmed, nor questioned by either the journalist, nor the paper.  Many of the main points of the article were factually incorrect, nothing new was disclosed that had not been part of Minister Kaye's announcement to our community last year and as it turns out, the tradesman who had visited our school is subject to the MOE confidentiality clause when provided with the information to allow him to tender for the job.

More Relocatable Classrooms......

Late Sunday night, another relocatable classroom arrived on site and was placed in a tiny back corner of the school.  The driver of that house moving truck managed to negotiate rather successfully, considering we were in the throws of Cyclone Pam.  The truck that brought in the footings, however, was not so successful and managed to bog to the axles in our previously swampy adventure playground.  The house moving company then proceeded to pull their truck out, using a tractor and I walked away as the truck slid tenuiously close to the retaining wall.  The house moving co
