Draft Charter Goals
Having consulted with the community, cultural groups, staff, and taken student input our Board has come up with three over-arching charter goals for the next three years.  These are very broad goals which we will unpack and put detail into each year.  I am very open to your feedback on these goals and you can have a word with me when you see me around the school or email me at

Pet Day
Pet Day is next Wednesday 11th December.  A hard copy letter is coming home today, please check children's bags.

Multicultural Day
Thank you to our wonderful community for sharing workshops and preparing food and performances for our annual multicultural day last week.  Thank you to Mrs Plieger who once again organised the day for us and all the wonderful children who participated so enthusiastically.  There are a lot more photos on our school notice page and our school Facebook page.

Learning Around the School
In our environmental focus, Ruma Tui have been learning about extracting minerals from the earth and how hard it is to put the land back to rights after it has been excavated.  The point was made clear by "mining" chocolate chips out of cookies and trying to put the cookies back together again.

David and his class have taken a step into action after their science learning on energy and they have made solar ovens - which work!
