Blokes Breakfast

Thank you to Aaron Foss for sponsoring Blokes Breakfast with a coffee cart and photo booth this year. It was great to see so many of our school Dads enjoying a special morning together with their kids.

Thank you also to Suyin for organising this event and all the volunteers who helped to cook bacon and serve, we couldn’t do it without you. If you would like to download your photos taken in the photo booth please contact us

Trivia Night – 80s Prom

Friday September 16, 6.30PM – Midnight, SOLD OUT!

We’re really excited for Trivia Night in two weeks time. This event is now SOLD OUT so if you have booked a table make sure to get your pizza order in and get that costume finalised!

We are also running a silent auction throughout the night and have 5 fabulous beach houses which are available to rent. You can see details HERE.

The doors open at 6.30pm and the quiz will run from 7.30-9.00pm.

Calendar Art

Each class has worked hard to create their wonderful Calendar Art that can be applied to a range of stationery for this annual fundraiser. These make great keepsakes or Christmas presents. You can order as many items as you wish from the same picture.

Please go to Kindo to put you order in by 18 September.

We expect to distribute the stationery to classes in Week 2 of Term 4.

Working Bee

Sunday 25 September

Come and join us at school on Sunday 25th September to help beautify our school gardens.

We have a new group of parent working on the Kiri area which has already had a great impact. We will continue with this and will also focus on Rawhitiroa Rd and the area behind the new Year 3 hub. We always have a great day with pizza lunch and beverages supplied for our helpers.

Please register your interest HERE for our planning.

Pizza & Ice block Coordinator needed

We have a strong team of volunteers who help to sell Pizza and Ice blocks every Friday. We are needing someone new to coordinate this group and manage the pizza and ice block orders. Please let us know if you could help
