• Swimming Pool Act 1 - This Weekend!

    There is a Dad’s Army working bee this weekend to take down the 3 trees by our boundary. This is step one in our site preparation for our new swimming pool.


    Any dad’s, mum’s or friends of our school who are happy to wield a chainsaw and help with cutting the trees into rings and splitting the wood are very welcome. As per usual the more the merrier and easier.


    There will be a safety briefing from our Arborist, Ben Wilson and Stihl Te Awamutu at 12:30pm on Saturday. Please ensure you bring along all safety gear needed.


    A big thanks to Ben for donating his time and expertise and to Stihl Te Awamutu who are providing the wood splitters for free and are also bringing along extra safety gear.

  • Tractor Pull

    With our winning title from 2016 at stake, today our Tractor Pull Team were put to the ultimate test!  


    We were visited by Giltrap Agrizone with their 5 tonne tractor which our team of 20 strong senior students gave their utmost to pull it the 30 metres required!  With most of the school out on the field in support, our team gave it their all. We were timed but as yet do not know how we were placed… watch this space!


    If we are one of the two fastest schools who trial, we will go on to compete at the final on site at Fieldays on Saturday 17 June at 1pm.  The winning prize this year is a whopping $2,000 in a cash donation and $500 for the runner up school - fingers crossed!

Today we are pleased to celebrate a piece of writing with you from Saski H & Eric P in Pukatea 14.

to take you straight there. Congratulations on a wonderful piece of writing - well done!

  • Impetigo (School Sores) School sores are a common infection in children that is easily spread and often occurs on the lower legs.  School sores can easily be spread by direct contact but also indirectly through the sharing of towels etc.  The best way to limit the spread of the infection is through good hygiene, keeping fingernails short and at home - ensuring the infected person baths separately.  It is very important that school sores are treated early to prevent the development of a serious skin infection and to stop the spread to other people.  For more information please follow this link or contact our Public Health Nurse, Sara-Jane Murison on 838 3565 x 22147 or email sara-jane.murison@waikatodhb.health.nz
