• Parent Teacher Interviews


    Research shows that for students to get the best out of their schooling years, a strong partnership between school and home is very important.  We look forward to hosting our Parent Teacher Interviews during the last week of this term. This year we have decided to extend the interview session slot to 12 minutes to allow valuable extra time in your interview.  


    Our Parent-Teacher Interviews commence at

    1:10pm on Tuesday 11th April;

    therefore school will conclude at the earlier time of 12:30pm on this day.  


    Normal school hours will resume Wednesday 12th April with our learning day concluding at 2:30pm.


    We apologise for any inconvenience caused by our early conclusion of learning on Tuesday.   After School Care will be available from this earlier time and we will have extra staff available in this capacity if you wish to book your child into this programme.  Please note that normal charges will apply for this service.  


    Cambridge Travel Lines will be collecting students at their usual pick up time of 2:30pm.  Due to prior commitments they are unable to offer an earlier pick up.


    On Tuesday 11 April our plan is for teaching to continue for a solid four hour morning of learning for all children.  Many students will be returning to school that day to participate in their conference, as follows:


    • In Maungatautari Syndicate our Year 5 & 6 students will share their learning journey as part of this meeting.

    • Our Year 3 & 4 Pirongia students will also be involved in their learning conferences.

    • Taupiri teachers would like to meet with parents only for their children’s interviews.


    Interview times are able to be booked for the following days:


    Tuesday 11th April: 1:10pm - 7.00pm

    Wednesday 12th April:      3:00pm - 5:24pm


    You will soon receive an email supplying you with an event code for Parent Interviews.  We expect this to be sent to you tomorrow, Friday 24 March. Please book your Parent Interview by visiting www.schoolinterviews.co.nz and enter the code you will be supplied with as prompted.


    If you require any assistance with your booking, please contact Kim at the school office on 856 9238.

  • Country Cluster Junior Tabloids


    What a fantastic day our Taupiri Syndicate have enjoyed as we hosted our Country Cluster friends from Seventh Day Adventist School, Newstead School, Matangi School and Tauwhare School for today’s Junior Tabloids event.


    Photos to come


    It was encouraging to see so many of our younger children participating fully and displaying our School Vision: Kia maia (Confident can do Kids), Kia manaaki (Honour be your Guide) and Kia kotahi (Together as One).  For many of these children this was a completely new experience and we are proud of them for the spirit in which they involved themselves.


    Thank you to the parents who came along in support of this event and a special thanks to Mrs Paula Dunton for coordinating the event.  On behalf of all the students, thanks to the PTA for hosting the school wide Sausage Sizzle!

  • Maungatautari Camp #1 Next Week!

    Our first group of Maungatautari Campers heads away next Tuesday for their amazing camp experience at Waihi Beach!  Karaka 15, Manuka 16 and Mahoe 17 are the first group to attend, while Miro 13 and Pukatea 14 head off in Week 10.  


    Needless to say all involved are very excited and the activities the students will experience are fun opportunities to learn a new skill or further develop existing ones.  Lots of careful planning is involved in preparing for camp and we thank everyone who has contributed for making this possible, with special thanks to Mrs Annette Howard for coordinating this including seeing to all of the finer details.  Thank you also to the many parents who are supporting our camp as helpers, we know it is always a popular event with many more putting their name forward  than we can take.  We are grateful to have such a wonderfully supportive parent community at our school.


    We look forward to sharing some photos with you soon and we wish all attending a fun, safe and happy time away!

  • Pirongia’s Wonderful Trip!

    What a superb day our Pirongia Syndicate enjoyed when they visited their mountain on Tuesday!  



    The weather was favourable and our teaching staff had a fantastically supportive group of parents who gave up their day to join the team on their excursion.  It was a wonderful day of learning in our beautiful country, thank you to everyone for making this trip such a success.
