2. This information went to families at the start of the year, much of it may not be relevant now but am sending these links just in case this is helpful.


Kia ora new students and whānau,

As we are still in Covid Level 2, we are unable to host you on site as we would like to. However, we would love to offer you the chance to meet with us and ask questions before the end of the year.

As such, we are offering a series of zoom sessions with key members of staff sharing information in a hosted session, as well as responding to any questions you may have.
Currently the sessions we have planned are:

Years 1-6 New Entrants

Tuesday 30th November 7.30pm

Year 7-8 Community

Special Character Learning (SDL, OSL and Hapori)

Extra support information

Closer to the event a Zoom link and Google doc link will be released on our website. These will enable you to ask questions in advance, and view the session live. Each session will be recorded and stored on our site for your future reference.

Thanks so much,
