Congratulations to our Head Girl, Sithuli and Head Boy Luc'kym. We know you will do a great job.

Bike Track 

Our Bike Track was to be officially opened on the 27th of August. The offical opening was postponed due to lockdown, but our tamariki have been out enjoying our track - we just couldn't wait any longer! We have had two wheels days, and our students are out regularly on the track, with our Year 5 - 8 students working on getting their bike licences. We have bikes to suit all ages and abilities from balance bikes, to BMXs and mountain bikes. The track is also great for walking and running on when the field is too wet. This is just another way we can encourage our students to have a healthy and active lifestyle.

Junior Outdoor Learning Environment

We opened our newly refurbished Junior Play Based Learning environment in February this year. This includes an outdoor learning environment for our play based junior school classes. This project was designed by Boffa Miskell and completed with the generous support of the Hugh Green Foundation. 

Check out this video showing the opening day.


Garden to Table

At Garden to Table, children learn about the process of food from garden to table.  All of our Year 3 - 6 children get the opportunity to participate in this exciting hands on programme where they learn to grow and harvest vegetables in our school garden, and use them too cook delicious meals in the kitchen.

Find out more on our Garden to Table page.
