• Angie Millar - Our Hero!

    We are thrilled to share with our school community the recipient of The Kiwibank Local Hero Award for 2018 -  none other than our very own Angie Millar!

    The Kiwibank Local Hero Award aims to identify and reward everyday people doing extraordinary things in their local communities. These awards recognise the enormous contribution, sacrifice and commitment of Kiwis who selflessly work to make their local communities a better place.

    Angie is well known and loved by many in our school as the mind behind our marvellous best seller, “Divine Eats”.  With our new swimming pool as motivation and a dream in her heart to make something more than a typically bound school cookbook, Angie set out to make what has become an iconic New Zealand school cookbook!  Divine Eats has made a huge impact on our pool fundraising and we would not be where we are today without you, Angie.

    Congratulations Angie, you deserve every bit of this award! Thank you for your amazing contribution to our school - we are so pleased that you have been recognised by the wider community for all you’ve done for us.

  • Swimming Pool News

    What an amazing accomplishment - only one week until our Swimming Pool Opening Ceremony!

    We welcome all of our parents and caregivers to attend this special occasion which commences at 1pm Friday 24 November.  

    Our opening ceremony will begin with a blessing where our students and staff will walk onto the site from the pavement between the school and pool.  If you will be joining us, please wait past the swimming pool on the pavement facing the green fence to allow the children to enter first.

    We hope for beautiful weather and suggest you bring your hats and sunglasses.  We hope to have you with us to celebrate our incredible new facility and the hard work of so many people.

  • Taupiri Truck Safety Visit

    The Taupiri syndicate have been offered the opportunity to hear a short presentation about Truck Safety, entitled 'Sharing the Road'.  Following the presentation, students will view a large truck and trailer unit to further explore potential dangers.

    The truck is expected to arrive at school at 9.00am on Monday.  It will park in the bus bay in the main school carpark.  To manage student safety, this first parking bay will be coned off entirely so students can view the truck.  If you are expecting to stay on at school after 8.30am on Monday, we ask that you park in an alternative parking space to allow space for the truck to arrive and depart.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  • Pirongia and Maungatautari Athletics

    This year Pirongia and Maungatautari Syndicates will be having their athletic days on the school fields on Wednesday November 22nd and Thursday the 23rd.

    These days will run slightly differently this year due to the opportunity to represent the school at the Inter City Schools Athletics on Friday the 1st of December. Because of this

    we will be running our days in age groups rather than year groups. Ages are to be taken at October 16th 2017.

    Please read the schedule to double check which day your child/ren are competing.

    Wednesday November 22nd

    • 7 year old girls and boys

    • 8 year old girls and boys

    Thursday November 23rd

    • 9 year old girls and boys

    • 10 year old girls and boys

    • 11 year old girls and boys

    Children will need:

    • to wear their whanau shirt

    • bring a suitable lunch and big drink bottle filled with water

    • bring a warm jersey and/or jacket

    • all children should be wearing shoes for SHOT PUT. In all other events, they may have bare feet

    Sun Safety - The children will be outside for most of the day so will be exposed to the heat of the sun. Sun cream will be available, students will be asked to wear sunscreen

    to school and to re apply during the day, also to always wear their whanau shirts and school wide brimmed sun hats.

    The children will rotate in age gender groups around all events. Children are expected to participate in all events as they have been practising at school and this is part of the

    Physical Education and Health curriculum.  It is also a great time to support friends.

    Kind regards,

    Maungatautari and Pirongia Teachers
