Reminder: We have a policy of no sweets or chocolates at school - this is also in line with our healthy eating guidelines and only to be had as occasional treats. Although Christmas candy canes and lollies are around at this time of the year they are not to be eaten at school. However we will allow these special treats to be eaten during the last week of term.
Every Thursday, Kapai Kai lunches that have been ordered by students or staff, are delivered to our school. These meals are super nutritious and delicious: they only use high-quality ingredients like free-range eggs, wholemeal pasta and no refined sugars, or processed meats. Therefore they fit perfectly with our Health Promoting Schools Policy. Orders need to be placed by Wednesday, cash payment only. Please find attached the latest menu if you like to give it a go!

Thank you to the Ngati Whakaue Endowment Grant for the grant of $13,000 to ‘boost our oral literacy in reading and writing’. This grant enables us to purchase the Quick60 Alphabet books and the Factual texts Set 2 (we bought Set 1 this year), storage for these sets and employ a teacher aide to run these programmes next year. We are also able to purchase sets of Lego for our Bricks Club. We are beyond grateful for this grant and the benefits it will bring for our tamariki.
