• Pumpkin Night

    Pumpkin Night 2018 was a massive success! The weather certainly played ball for us and brought out the crowds who enjoyed the variety of foods on offer, fun activity stalls and performances on stage. The team have so many people to thank and give recognition to:

    • To all the parents and past pupils who came and helped on the night and before the night to create, setup, pack down and other endless jobs! Also who donated lollies, chocolate, drinks, books and clothing.

    • Regal Haulage - for providing the truck so we had a stage to perform from.

    • The Berry family and Edsel Forde - for donating hay bales to be used for the event.

    • Punnet - for the vouchers to give to past and present pupils who helped set up and pack down.

    • Te Awa Church - for allowing us to use your P.A. for the stage.

    • Lions Tamahere and Cambridge - for organising the parking and setting up the food caravan.

    • St Peter’s Cambridge, Lodge Real Estate, The University of Waikato, The Chiefs and Waikato Homes,- for the use of your gazebos for the event.

    • Alex McMillan - for bringing along horses for the children to enjoy.

    • LEAP - for providing a stall for Pumpkin Night that was a lot of fun!

  • Country Cluster Swimming Sports

    This year for the first time ever, we will be hosting the Country Cluster Swimming Sports at our school. Students who are Years 3-6 are involved in this day. This year, due to the success of the new Vela Pool complex, we will be ‘sending’ approximately 50 of our students to represent our school.

    If you are able to help with a sausage sizzle that day, please let the Office staff know. We would like to provide this for the other schools and bring in some income from the event. Also on Thursday 29th March we will be hosting the City Cluster Swimming Sports. Once again, if you can help out with the sausage sizzle we would appreciate the support.

  • School Camp and Photos

    Last week Pukeatua Pod in the Maungatautari Syndicate, enjoyed a fabulous four days at Mi Camp Taupo.  There were many adventures and challenges met from high ropes, kayaking, raft building and bushcraft to name a few.  The children had a wonderful time reflecting kia manaaki, kia maia, kia kotahi.

    A huge thank you goes out to the incredible group of parents and teachers who helped to make this experience the pleasure it was.  Also thanks has to be mentioned to the wonderful staff at Mi Camp Taupo, who catered and cared for our needs with such kindness and sensitivity.  

    Good luck to Te Akatarere Pod, as you head off this week to partake in this wonderful experience.  We know you will have an amazing time.
