Communication / Newsletters

We endeavor to have worthwhile communication with students, parents and caregivers.  Fortnightly newsletters are distributed, usually on Thursday, to each pupil for them to take home.  They are also e-mailed to parents/caregivers.  Through these newsletters, we hope to keep parents informed of vital information, current events at school and future happenings. Our  newsletter is easily accessible online through our website and on our App.  We also have a Facebook page which is regularly updated.

We know from numerous studies that the biggest impact on student learning comes from the quality of the teacher. We want to continue having the best teaching team we can possibly offer, which includes ensuring they have ongoing professional development opportunities.  By having a consistent weekly session we can plan more effectively and commit to this training and our tamariki will benefit enormously as a result.

For a successful life, being at school everyday, on time, with a willingness to take on learning, is a great place to start.
