Welcome. Nau mai, haere mai.

Ngā mihi e te whānau, warm greetings to you all,

When we are at school every day we teach and learn mathematics, reading, and writing, as well as teaching and learning an additional curriculum area. The links below will direct your child to learning tasks that are a familiar part of our programme.

At school we use Google Classroom to deliver many learning activities, and we would encourage them to access this at home too.

Please contact your child's homeroom teacher if you require any support.
