Weekly Update

  • Maungatautari & Pirongia Swimming Sports Success


    Last Friday was a fantastic day to have our swimming sports at both venues.  All children participated enthusiastically in a range different swimming races.    Having the two events (15 & 25 metres) at different venues gave both groups of students a wonderful chance to shine amongst peers of a similar swimming level.


    A huge thank you to our wonderful parents for their amazing support with the timekeeping at St Peter’s.  The races were fiercely contested and there were some very close calls for the judges and timekeepers. Overall it was a very successful day.  


    A massive thank you to St Peter’s for allowing us to use their incredible facilities at no cost.  Without their generosity and support an event like this could not take place.


    Who knows, maybe next year we can host all events at our own new pool?

  • Bus Stop and Disability Parking

    Due to our increased student numbers, Cambridge Travel Lines are now using a larger school bus to transports our students.  The bigger bus requires extra maneuverability space  and so we remind families to always use car parking spaces as designed.  Please do not park in areas not deemed car parks and ensure sufficient space is left for the bus to turn safely.


    Please also be reminded parking in the bus stop at school is not permitted and we ask for this rule to be abided by.  The safety of our students is paramount and we appreciate your support in this matter.




    Some members of our school community require access to disability car parks.  Please be reminded that unless you are disabled, these  parks must be left clear for our families who have mobility challenges. We have two disability car parks  in both of our parking areas for families who really need them.  We appreciate you leaving these disability car parks free at all times.

  • Flemish Giant Bunnies Our 3 female Flemish Giant bunnies were visited by a free ranging male rabbit and the result was a joint litter of 14 baby bunnies.  The mummies and babies are very friendly and come to greet me every morning, especially if I have some yummy dandelions.  As this is a large breed of rabbit the babies will need a larger than normal cage and lots of room to run around.  They will also need a lot of attention as they love company.  They are not too keen on being picked up, probably as they are just too big for the kids to handle, but they will eat out of your hand, sit on our lap, and come when called.Please ...

  • Whanau School Picnic On Friday the third of March (Week 5) we will be holding a Whanau picnic for the children. Students need to bring their own lunch as per normal. Each whanau will be allocated a specific area to sit together and enjoy being with their friends and brothers or sisters.   While we do enjoy hosting our families at school events, on this occasion our Whanau Picnic is for students and teachers only.  Thank you for your understanding.
