Term 4


Art and Craft Day

Our School Art and Craft Week will be week four of the term, 3rd - 7th November. During this week all the students will be creating a special piece of art which will be displayed in the school hall on the Friday. On that day children will also be creating two craft items which will be judged and then displayed in the school hall along with the art work created during the week.

At 1.30 parents are invited to come and view the displays. Viewing time will finish at 2.40pm as the children will then be collecting their items to take home.

To see what craft items children can create, the equipment required and the judging criteria please refer to Tuakana's and Teina's pages.


Sun Hats

All students are expected to wear an appropriate sunhat when participating in outside activities. All sunhats need to be named. Children who do not have a sunhat will have to play/stay in a shaded area.

Kia Mau Kapahaka Television Show Features Our Students

A few weeks ago some of our Yr 4-8 Kapahaka students were involved in filming for a new Kapahaka show called Kia Mau. We have just been informed by the show's producer, Casey Kaa that Kia Mau is about to hit the screens on Maori Television starting Saturday 11th October 2014 at 5.00pm


Casey and her film crew were so impressed by our beautiful kura and all the tamariki who participated in the programme.  They couldn't have done it without our tamariki's enthusiasm, passion and evident love of kapa haka.


Below are the dates that our kura will profile on the show.  We hope of course that our whanau will watch all of our Kia Mau programmes. However the exact screen dates that our tamariki will be on Kia Mau are outlined below.
