We ask that all parents and caregivers take the time to make an appointment to meet with your child/children’s kaiako/teacher/s.

Healthy Eating/Celebrations

Many of our whanau like to celebrate their child/children’s birthday by bringing a birthday cake for the child’s class to share.  We are very happy for this but ask that it is only a cake.  Please do not send pizza, juice, goodie bags etc. Thank you for your support and understanding.
