Free Flu Vaccinations

Thu Jun 09 04:30pm

Flu vaccinations will be available in the school car park tomorrow for all those interested.  We have made it really clear to the vaccinators that no children can be vaccinated without a parent / caregiver present.  So no child will be vaccinated by accident.

If you would like your child vaccinated, call in to the office, and your child can be collected from class, and you can take them to see the staff from Te Puna Ora o Mataatua.


Year 6 Camp Fundraiser tomorrow! Bring along your coins to buy yourself a sweet treat!

Important Notice – Please Read

Tue Apr 05 07:32pm

Kia ora Whanau… we need your help!
Sorry about the late notice, but we now have a high number of staff who are away for the rest of this week, either isolating, or sick, and we are struggling to safely staff the school.
We don’t want to close the school again, as this impacts on people who need to get childcare… but to stay open, we are asking for those of you who are at home and don’t need to arrange childcare, to keep your kids at home for the rest of the week.
So to clarify… School is open… but if you can keep your kids at home, please do.
Thank you much for your understanding.


We welcome you to our School
