• Anō te pai! Fantastic! Congratulations go out to our Kapa Haka Rōpu who performed magnificently last Thursday night at The Hillcrest Kahui Ako’s inaugural Kapa Haka Festival. Our 70 strong rōpu performed with a huge amount of mana and our final Tamahere Hi Haka blew everyone away with the pride and strength shown by all of our students, which was powerfully led by Leo O for the first time.   Huge thanks go to Matua Sean, who left family commitments to be with us for the day. Thanks also to Mrs Metcalfe and Mrs Murray for their support and organisation of the Rōpu.

  • 2 New Classrooms! Wonderful news! After years of struggling with increased numbers and no space, we have finally been told that we have two classrooms heading to our school. There is a massive need, with our next cohort of new entrants arriving and no spare classroom for them. We gather we are in the top half of classrooms to be rolled out, but have no details at this stage and the timeframes could be protracted with so many schools in need and involved in this roll out. Please see the Stuff Article below.“Schools in Waikato and Hawke's Bay are in line for a government spend-up on more classrooms at growing schools.The announcement, from Education Minister Chris Hipkins in Hamilton on Tuesday ...

  • Principal For the Day Mr L Gallagher and Miss H Dunseath did a great job of running our school last Friday, with senior student, Waveney P allowed to support some activities. The day started with a New Entrant Parent tour of the school, then Staff Notices at morning tea, Choir Practice, Inka walking and concluded with Assembly and Bus Duty.    The role reversal was a result of the Golden Ball Auction where Principal for the Day was sold as a fun auction item along with the Parent Car Park. These clever fundraising ideas were able to add money to the playground kitty, without any cost. Thanks again to the Ball Committee for what they achieved, with almost $20,000 towards improving our playgrounds. Profits ...
