Community Sharing Day
Year 5 / 6 - E.O.T.C Trips
Some of our confident swimmers from Year 5 & 6 are going up to Goat Island Marine Reserve on Friday 24 November to snorkel in the fish abundant waters. Before they go there, they will have training with the snorkeling gear at the Papatoetoe Centennial Pools.
The day is organised by the Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust. They will provide expert trainers and the snorkeling gear and wetsuits. We will follow up this experience with a project to try and protect and improve our local waterways.
This group will be travelling to Kariotahi Beach on Monday 27 November.
They will be participating in activities both on the beach and in the water and learning how to be safe in the surf.
Parent help is essential for this trip to be successful.
The third trip option for our senior school students is to the Auckland Zoo.
This will be happening on November 27th.
Auckland Zoo is always a favourite for our students and they enjoy the special classes and behind the scenes insights into how the zoo operates.
We will be leaving school at 9:10 and returning at approximately 2:30.
Year 6 Brass Band Performance
Papatoetoe West School Year 6 concert band performed this week at the Vodafone Events centre. We were so proud of you all. It is pleasing to see all your hard work at band practices this year come to fruition in such an amazing performance. Thank you to Tironui Trust, all music tutors and parents for supporting our tamariki and their passion.
