The year is certainly flying by and we’ve enjoyed an action packed first few six weeks of term 4. The big highlight for me was attending the Kids for Kids Festival of Music at the Vodafone Events Centre . I was very proud to see our choir perform on such a big stage with real confidence. A big thanks to Ms Malcolm for training the choir throughout the year.

This week we can't wait to see you all at parent teacher interviews on Thursday 28th November. It is a real joy to celebrate children's success with you all. Students are always proud to share their portfolios and we look forward to presenting you with their end of year reports. Just a reminder school finishes at 2pm on Thursday.

Y3-Y6 Athletics 2019

Congratulations to everyone who participated in last week's Y3-Y6 Athletics Day. We were blessed to have sun out all day. It was wonderful to watch our athletes achieving their very best performances in all the events. A huge thanks to the parents and whanau who gave up their precious time to support our children. Good luck to the students who have qualified for the Otara Schools Athletics Champs.
