We value positive parent/teacher communication and encourage parents to stay connected with their children during this exciting time of their education and growth. Positive home and school communication and contact are very important and provide an excellent way for everyone to stay in touch and informed.
Our mantras are very important to us and lead us in how we think, act and respond
If it is to be it is up to me
Be the you you want to be
Be the best you can be
E hine, E tama, Ngā Whetū Mō Āpōpō; Girls and boys, stars of tomorrow
