  • Taupiri Athletics Day This year the Taupiri children have sampled all the events of athletics during our class rotation and the children have had a lot of fun during these non competitive events. We would like to put 100% participation and effort behind our school wide fun run to be held on the 4th December, therefore we will not be holding an official 'Taupiri athletics day'. There will be a chance for children to excel in the school sprint  finals and relays, and the opportunity for you to come along and watch on Wednesday 25th November, when the whole school will be participating. If your child is selected for these races, you will be notified by your child's teacher.Thank you for ...
