Term 1 2019

Week 4   18-22 February Kia ora,

  • Friday 22 - Paerangi Assembly 9.15am
  • Eighth Anniversary of the Canterbury  Earthquakes
    Amazingly it is eight years since the earthquakes that devastated our city. As a recognition of this, cones will be set up outside the school's front fence and we encourage our tamariki and whanau to  bring flowers to place there between the cones before school. This will be our tribute on the day to recognise the trauma our city and its people have suffered.
