Ngā mihi o te tau hou koutou katoa 2023

Anei ngā whakaritenga mō timatanga o te tau

Kia ora whanau, we hope you have all had an enjoyable Christmas and New Years!

We have a few messages for the start of the school year.

Office opening hours - The school office will be open from next Monday 23rd January, 10am - 2pm for enrolments or any other enquiries.

Please come directly to the office as we have contractors onsite. If you need assistance before then please feel free to email

Enrolment process - We have changed the way we do enrolments. Every whanau will now need to have a 10-15 minute meeting with the principal before children are enrolled. You can collect an enrolment form and we will give you a time for your meeting or try to fit it in on the day, your child will then start school on the following day.

Start date - Thursday 2nd February at 8.50am.

Stationery - Free.

No school uniform.

Powhiri - We will be holding a powhiri on the first day of school to welcome everyone back but also to welcome any new whanau/staff we have joining the school. This will be at Tawaraunui and will kick off at 9am. Nau mai, Haere mai.

School lunches - We will be supplied by Subway 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). Tuesday and Thursday kai is made onsite by lunch staff. If your child has any dietary requirements please let us know.
