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 are getting closer to the end of Term 1. Here is the newsletter for this week.

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.


Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
