Whanau Day - Friday 17th March
Our first Whanau Day for 2017 will be held on March 17th. On this day, normal scheduled classes will not run. Instead, we encourage you to come in to school with your child, to meet with their Whanau Teacher.
This is a great opportunity to discuss your child's progress to date, as well as to identify and address any potential issues which may have arisen.
The meeting should take approximately 20-30 minutes. Whanau teachers will be in touch with you during the next week to make appointments. We look forward to meeting with you.
This week was an exciting time as we began to roll out 50 new Chromebooks for use in the school. These will allow more students to make use of the internet for research and cloud-based work.
9 Karaka students hard at work on some of our new Chromebooks.

Road Closures - Thursday 30th March
We have been advised by Sport Whanganui that, due to the NZ Schools Triathlon Championships, there will be road closures from 7.30-5pm on 30th March.
The closures will be in effect from the corner of Drews Ave, along Taupo Quay and up Somme Parade, all the way up to the intersection of Glasgow Street. This includes the closure of the Dublin Street Bridge.
Please be aware of this and, if you are likely to be affected by the closures, make alternative arrangements to get students to school.
