Wow! We had a huge turnout of support from our community at our celebration of learning last evening. Our goals for this evening were to:
- Prepare celebration of learning presentation related to values – for our community
- Showcase agentic learning in action for the community in a variety of ways
- Continue to support a range of connections, communications with parents, caregivers, whanau and the community
Tamariki Potiki shared a simple mihi Whakatau to welcome us all, followed by a play they had written, about Zacchaeus.
Tamariki Teina shared the various ways they had chosen to learn about and share our school values. Lots of our families watched their presentations and asked them questions.
Tamariki Tuakana presented their investigations into Aotearoa New Zealand Histories. Visiting parents and families listened to their commentaries, read through their presentations, watched their videos and asked them tricky questions, for example, “Do you think it was fair?” (The Treaty of Waitangi). The children were impressive in the knowledge they were able to share and their understanding of the complexities of our country’s history.
Thank you to all of the children, the teachers and our families for supporting this evening – designed to bring our community back together after a long and difficult year of not being able to hold community events.
A Huge Congratulations to our budding athletes! These results speak for themselves! This is a massive effort for you all – good on you!

All of our Year 7&8 students have been training for their upcoming Tramp in the Orongorongo range. They’ve taken off with their school bags full to practice tramping. They are also planning all of the details for the tramp – including food, clothing, gear needed and how to support children who are feeling sad or unwell!
Good on you, team!
Well done to all of Year 7&8 participants in Problem Challenge 2020 (run by Otago University). This Challenge involves children completing a series of increasingly difficult written maths challenges. The children can enter as individuals or in pairs.
Congratulations on these wonderful results:
