Need To Know !


5/6 New Zealand Kenakena Exchange

A final info night will take place in the BER from 6pm til 6.30 on Tuesday 10 October.

See you there.



For the safety and fairness to our whole school community it would be appreciated if ALL parents/guardians/visitors could adhere to the parking zones around the school at all times.


 **On Balaclava Road there is a dedicated ‘Bus Zone from 8am to 4pm on school days’ – you   cannot park here at any time during these times. Please also be mindful that if you are waiting for buses to return after 4pm, that the buses still require  access to this space so that our students/teachers/parent helpers can disembark safely.


**The ‘2 minute’ parking zones (8-9.30am and 3-4pm) around the school are ‘kiss and go’ zones. They are to be used by parents quickly dropping off or picking up students. Cars should not be left unattended at any time during these times.


** Please be considerate of the local community during drop off, collection or parking around the school. Do not double park or park over or within driveways or across the school driveways.


** Students are not permitted access to the car park.


** Please also adhere to speed limits.

5/6 team


Walk to school

From the 9th October, our school is now going to take part in a program called walk to school. Walk to school is a program that encourages children to walk, scoot or cycle to school. This program will teach children how to be safe around roads and improves the child’s physical ability. It’s also a great opportunity to meet up with friends and walk together to school. By participating you could help your school win great regional prizes and you will enjoy the benefits of walking scooting or cycle to and from school. Your children received a leaflet. It’s got all the information you need to know about walk to school.

Next steps

- Organize meeting points with your friends

- Share experience or tips on 18th September Assembly

- Get ready for the beginning of the Competition on the 9th October

Lost Property


A reminder that Lost Property is located on the first floor of the Main Building.


If your child has misplaced an item of clothing please ensure you check Lost Property. There are currently quite a number of clothing items, the majority of which are named.


If items are not collected they will be washed and donated to the second hand clothing shop.


We ask that parents please check hat and jacket labels on the clothes their children bring home every so often to make sure they haven't accidently brought someone else's item home by mistake. This can easily happen and we have quite a number of lost items at the moment which aren’t in lost property. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
