On Friday 12th February from 10.15am to 11.00am you are all invited to join your children, here at school, for a Whakatau. This is an informal ceremony to welcome our new children, families and staff. From our class Owen and Lucia will be presented a certificate at the Whakatau.

After the ceremony it would be lovely to share a morning tea together. To support this occasion please can your child provide a small plate of food to share. Can I remind you though that we have some children in school that have an ‘anaphylaxis plan’ and would request that, for their safety, to not bring in any foods that contain ‘nuts’.
