• Welcome Back

    It is wonderful to see all the smiling faces about our school after what was hopefully an enjoyable and restful holiday break for our families.  We extend an extra special warm welcome to all of our 18 new students who joined our school on Monday. It is lovely to have you and your families with us and we look forward to getting to know you all well.

    Term 4 is always a busy one for our school with lots of learning and assessment, end of year activities and many highlights such as Ag Day, Athletics, Dressing of the Tree and T Ball. If any parents and caregivers have extra time to help around our school in classrooms, on trips or in other ways, please do let us know, we appreciate all the help we can get and value your contribution to our school.

  • Ag Day Helpers

    If anyone is able to assist with set up on Thursday at 2.30pm, this would be greatly appreciated.

    If you are able to provide some baking (biscuits or slice - no nuts) for us to sell on the day, this would also be a big help towards covering costs.

  • Cake Walk

    Next Saturday the 27th October our two Jump Jam teams will be competing in the Jump Jam Nationals competitions held in Tauranga.  We are busy fundraising for this event and would really appreciate your support with our upcoming annual ‘Cake Walk’. This will involve the Jump Jam students designing and creating their own amazing cakes.  These cakes will be put on display on Tuesday 23rd October (Week Two, Term Four) in the T.C.C foyer.

    Everyone within the school will have the opportunity to view the cake creations during the morning of this day.  If they have purchased tickets they can place them in the draw to win the cake or cakes that they like the best. If they are lucky enough they will be bringing home a cake to share with you and your family!  

    Tickets are on sale this week up until the day of the Cake Walk.  The Jump Jam students will visit classes each morning to collect money and distribute tickets.  Feel free to come and have a look at the cake creations on the day of the Cake Walk. Thank you for your consideration and support…. And if you are keen to contribute a cake to our Cake Walk please contact Carla Ballantyne via email cballantyne@tamahere.school.nz for more information.

  • Break-in

    Sadly on Sunday morning at around 2:30 am our school was targeted by burglars. This was a pre-planned robbery that involved two men taking out a pane of glass before entering our Senior Pukeatua block and taking further devices. These burglars knew exactly what they were looking for and where they were located as they had already got away with devices from this location late last term.

    Thanks to our PTA and the Golf Tournament Committee we were already in the process of installing security cameras around our school. These are now fully installed. We ask all of our school families to keep an extra eye out and let us know if you see anything unusual happening at and around our school.

  • Arrival Time Reminder

    Just a reminder that all children who arrive at school prior to 8:00am must join our Before School Care programme and any child still in the playground at 2.45pm joins the After School Care programme and will be charged accordingly. This ensures all children are safe and supervised.

    We encourage students to arrive at school between 8.15am and 8.20am so that they have time to get settled and prepared for their first class at 8.30am.

  • Adventure Race
    Our Whanau Leaders will be attending The Amazing Race leadership day Wednesday 24th October. The day is run and organised by a large team from the Waikato Institute for Leisure and Sport.  The children spend their time running from one race challenge to another together in two teams of 8. They need to show a great deal of strategic and cooperation skills. It is a really fun and rewarding experience for all and we wish them all the best.
