  • What a fantastic Camp!
    Well done Annette, Tom and the whole team who made the first camp at Waihi Beach such a success. Our parent helpers were outstanding and ensured the smooth running of a logistically challenging camp. Thank you all. 

    We also had a fantastic team of students from Manuka 16, Pukatea 14 and Mahoe 17 who made our Camp such a happy and special time. Our next team of Campers head off next week to enjoy their tramping, camping, kayaking and learning about the history of mining in the area.

  • Tummy Bugs

    If your child vomits or has diarrhea please keep them at home for 24 hours after symptoms to help break the cycle. We have several students and some staff members unwell at the moment and we would love to keep our school as healthy as possible.

  • Pumpkin Night - Saturday 14th March 3pm - 7pm
    Everything is gearing up for Pumpkin Night 2015.  The organising committee have been amazing and it is wonderful to have so many parents who have volunteered to help out on the night. 

    The Pumpkin focus will be to the fore this year with many new games, competitions and activities to enjoy. Spread the word and tell all your friends and family so we have a wonderfully successful night. 

    Young artists and entertainers can enter into the wide range of creative pumpkin competitions as well as the T Factor talent quest - which will be performed on stage during the evening. Entry forms and information is available here.  Past pupils may also like to come back and entertain us.

  • Casual Vacancy - Board of Trustees
    We would like to thank, and farewell, Toni Sherlock, a member of our Board of Trustees, who has helped to lead our Personnel and Legislation portfolios for the last few years. Toni has been an asset to our Board and has put in many hours despite her daughter having already left for Berkley. Toni is now stepping down to focus on her work commitments and we are very happy to put Karla Ward forward as her replacement. Karla stood in our last Board election and was placed 4th with only 3 votes separating our last 3 candidates. Karla was Co-opted onto our Board and has seen us through ERO as well as taking over the Property Portfolio.

  • Triathlon / Aquathlon - Tuesday 17th March
    This year we will be holding both an Aquathlon for our Taupiri Students as well as our full Triathlon for Pirongia and Maungatautari students. 

    This change is to help make the event more enjoyable for everyone and reduce the stress around bike riding for the Juniors.   Instead the Juniors will have a more adventurous obstacle run as part of their Aquathlon.  

    More details to come soon!
