  • Country Cluster Speech Competition At the end of Term 3, we had 3 senior students represent Tamahere at the Cluster Speech Competition; congratulations to AJ M, Annabelle C and Evie W who made it through to this stage.

A special congratulations must go to Evie who was awarded first place (for the second year in a row!) with her speech titled ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’.

  • Traffic Detours on SH1 We are pleased that the traffic seems to be flowing better than expected. Just a reminder of the notice from Simon Brandon, the NZTA Waikato Expressway Stakeholder and Communications Manager... “The south-bound detour for traffic at Tamahere, utilising the off and on-ramp at the Tamahere Interchange has gone reasonably well but we expect school traffic from today will add to pressures there. The detour runs for another four weeks and will impact on school drop-offs, mainly for those coming from the northwest (Tauwhare Road and sideroads).  Traffic management staff are at the roundabouts under the overbridge to assist with flows at these peak times, however SH1 traffic is the priority and local road users can expect delays ...
