Finally!!!! The dodgeball pit is open and the senior room got to have the first go. It really is organised chaos but there are rules and they know what they are doing. A huge thanks to the PTA, Taggart Landscape Supplies and Gary for making this vision become a reality.

A huge thank you to Taggart Landscape Supplies for the finishing touches to our brand new gaga dodgeball pit. We are so close to finished. The PTA have been incredible in their support of this venture (18 months from start to finish) and Gary has once again excelled with his expertise and quality workmanship. The tamariki just can’t wait to get to use this. Roll on next week!! We will have a timetable in place of who can use it when so that we keep everyone as safe as we can. Come on down at a break times and see what all the excitement is about... by Tuesday we should be up and running … fingers crossed.
