Today our beautiful visual pepeha has been put up on the outside of the library. This was created by Myjr Coster ART BY MYJR who is an ex pupil of ours. We are so appreciative of her sharing her talent with us to create a representation of our school and community. In the background is Mount Maukatere with the Ashley Rakahuri river in the foreground. You will notice harakeke, kowhai and other plants from some of our buildings, our REACH pencils and whare. A huge thank you to Rātā Foundation for the grant to fund this project. We are incredibly proud of this art piece.

Happy New Year to you all!!! As you can see we have been having some improvements done around the school. Today Josua from Edge Line Marking finished the new playground markings at school. He is so good at what he does and a real perfectionist when it comes to his work. A huge thank you to the PTA and Stuart Morris - Ray White Rangiora for the funds to complete these exciting additions to our playground. I can’t wait to see the children having fun with these.
