Parents are invited to our end of term learning celebration. We would love to share our camp experience writing and painting with you, as well as our technology projects on bridges.

We will start at 1.45pm in our classes to share camp experiences before moving to the TCC to share our bridge models with the rest of the Pirongia syndicate. We will finish at 2.30pm.

We hope to see you there!

Congratulations to our very own Annabelle C ( Year 4 Kauri 2) who entered the The Top Outdoor Spot competition for 2017 and was a "Best Drawing" winner!   The annual competition is open to primary and intermediate school students across New Zealand, and asks them to take photos, draw, or write about their favourite outdoor spot.  Well done Annabelle, we are so proud of you!

Lake Taupo


Annabelle, 8

I couldn't choose my favourite place in NZ. So my picture is of Pirongia Mountain (another place I love).

Here is my story about Taupo:

The crystal clear lake ripples gently at my fingertips. Warm water laps at my toes. Gulls are soaring noisily overhead. Their white and grey feathers shine in the sun as they squawk loudly. My ice-cream melts quickly over my grasping hands. Brown ducks bob along the water slowly. The huge mountains stand taller than the squeaking playground. It's beautiful Taupo.

Altrusa Club - Donation of Books

posted Jun 6, 2017, 3:46 PM by Reception @TMCS

The members of the Altrusa Club of Hamilton are asking you to search your bookshelves, wardrobes, desks and drawers for books that you have loved but no longer require. These preloved books (still in good condition), will be passed on to other children in Hamilton less fortunate than yourselves to love and enjoy. 

They  would like to collect these before you go on holiday in July, and perhaps again before the end of September for those who need more time to find the books you would like to donate. Clearly marked boxes will be available for the books to be placed in the office foyer.

Altrusa would like to thank you in advance for your donations and commend you on your community spirit.

Last weekend two of our senior teams competed in the Hamilton City Netball Tournament.  

Both teams played brilliantly making it through to the final. The Year 6 Tamahere Magic team won their final 15-2 while the Year 5 Tamahere Aces were only narrowly beaten, coming home with the silver medal.


Congratulations girls!
