Dear Parents/Caregivers,                                                                                               Panui 2 Term 3, 2018

Welcome back to school for Term 3 2018 for the late comers and the new comers.  Our kura is quietly humming along and everything is looking good while the children are partaking in some wonderful activities and engaged in good quality learning.



I need to put out a reminder for the regulars of our bell times especially the start of school.

8.45 am    School commences

10.45am   Morning Tea

12.30pm   Lunch

2.45pm     School finishes and clear school grounds for staff meetings

It is great to see the majority of the students turning up on time and starting early without disrupting the class.


Our dental technicians have completed their visit and have been pleasantly surprised by the way the children conduct themselves when coming to and from the Dental van.  Ka mau te wehi nga tamariki o te kura nei!


We have completed the planning stages of our Swimming programme and a ready to roll. In Weeks 9 and 10 of this term we are travelling to Cannons Creek Swimming Pool. The children can’t wait to start.

The cost for 2 wks swimming (and transportation) is:

                              $24 for two children

                              $30 for three or more children             All payments to the office please.
