In Term 1 we will hold Grandparents Day. Usually it begins with a morning tea, 10.30am, followed by entertainment and visits to classrooms. Children may then go home early with grandparents, if we have received written permission. Do enjoy the day. Date and timetable to be advised in the newsletter.


One of the highlights of our school’s year, Pets Day is usually held in early November. Some children then like to take the opportunity to also show their animals or indoor exhibits at the Waimate Show.



Class and individual photographs are taken, usually in the second half of the year, and are offered on payment in advance basis.


Educational visits are an integral part of the school curriculum and are arranged with an educational objective in mind. Visits will usually be confined to the local area, with costs incurred the parents responsibility.


Parents can expect to be totally informed by newsletter prior to any educational visit taking place. School camps are also part of most schools extra curricular programme, although are dependent upon individual teacher, circumstances and parent support. 

As all educational camps and excursions involve cost, most will be user pays, although if there is a problem please feel free to contact me at school as we can always come to an arrangement to ensure children aren’t disadvantaged in terms of opportunities. 



Friday is Wheels Day where children can ride their bicycles, scooters, skateboards at school. They must bring and wear their own helmet from home.
