Tamariki need to check with their parents if they would like to stay after school. 

Soccer with Tui Glen – Last Friday a group of our Year 5 & 6 tamariki went to Tui Glen School for a Soccer challenge against some of the Tui Glen tamariki.  It was great that the games were played in a good spirit and everyone made the most of this fun opportunity.  We will be hosting Tui Glen for a touch rugby challenge in the coming weeks. 

Wellington Cricket Skills Coaching – We were delighted to host coaches from Wellington Cricket at school yesterday.  The children had a fun time learning and practicing new skills.
