A reminder that there is no school tomorrow as we have a Staff Only day.  We hope you enjoy your long weekend.


Our new Turf is almost finished and we will be having the opening and blessing on Tuesday morning at 9:15 am, whānau are welcome to attend this great occasion.  Our Junior and Senior Kapa Haka roopu will be performing after the blessing.


We have received notification from Auckland Transport that there will be major road works on Shirley Road, starting on Tuesday for the next two weeks.  This will greatly impact the travel to and from school. Please bear this in mind so your child is not late for school. Please see the attached notice for more information.


Have a wonderful long weekend, we look forward to welcoming back our tamariki on Tuesday morning.
