Together we strive for growth through learning

Term 1 Dates

Monday 4th February - Friday 12th April

Papatoetoe West staff, board and community all wish to share our condolences to those affected by Friday's most terrible events.

Many have already expressed their love and support in a multitude of truly heart warming ways. New Zealand is a special place. We are so full of love for one another that when such an act of hatred is performed, we are completely rocked to our core. Somehow it always seems like it won't happen here. It is understandable to be afraid and let the actions of a very, very few change the way we may look at others and expect the worst. But if we can look at the love, the true determination and generosity of so many following that day, we can be reminded of the very best examples of humanity and of who we truly are.

Let our message be clear.

No matter who you are, We love you all.

Eye on Nature - Family day event

We are very community and environmentally minded at Papatoetoe West School. So when events like the Eye on Nature Family Day occur, we try to do everything we can to promote them.

It is a great Family oriented event hosted at the beautiful Auckland Botanic Gardens in Manurewa.

Papatoetoe West Art Show

We held our school art show last week with all of our students presenting their creative masterpieces for the school to view. We also had some of our artworks selected to be displayed at the Papatoetoe Schools' Art Exhibition at Papatoetoe North School. Some of our classes made the long walk down to see the displays. Even though the walk was long, it was well worth it!
