The newsletter will be changing forever

Wed Mar 31 09:00am

Good morning families

Due to our recent change over to school APPs NZ, our newsletter will look a little bit different today. You will receive the newsletter a bit later on today via school APP as well as skoolloop. However, this will be the last time we will be using skoolloop to send out the newsletter. So please ensure that you have school APPs downloaded onto your phone over the long weekend. As of next Wednesday the 7th of May, we will no longer be using skoolloop for communications.

As usual our newsletter is available in several mediums:  hardcopy (by request), school APPs, as well as being available on the school website

Thank you

PTA Hot Cross Bun Fundraiser

Tue Mar 30 11:44am

The Hot Cross Buns will be distributed to classrooms tomorrow Wednesday 31st ready for school pick up.

If you have purchased a few packets of buns, it would help if your child has a bag (shopping/carrier bag) to bring these home as we wouldn’t want them getting squashed in school bags.

With your fabulous support we raised $812!
Thank you and we hope you enjoy this delicious treat.

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.


Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
