A huge thank you to all our students (ranging from Year 3 to Year 12) for representing our school so well in putting the finishing rouches to Te Kapua Playground.
Our tamariki represented our kura in the community so well. They proved to be polite, capable, and hard-working tamariki, anyone would have been proud.
Special thanks to the Service Academy students for putting int he hard mahi so our tamariki could achieve planting whole areas.
Here's a few photos from the day

Tongariro Students Plan on Overseas Travel
An excited and energetic group of staff, students and parents have plans to travel to Thailand in August/September 2024.
Currently, the group is working hard on fundraising to help meet the costs necessary for this exciting venture.
Activities planned for the trip include a visit to an Elephant Sanctuary, riding in long-tail boats on the canals, and visiting Buddhist temples, floating markets, and the water park in Hua Hin.
We have a school Tuk shop running for 20 minutes twice a week, and desktop sales to add to the kitty with big fundraisers planned in the near future.
We are working on a monster raffle and are so pleased with the support from our local businesses. We do realise businesses and whanau have had difficulties over the last couple of years however, if any business would like to donate a prize and be included in the recognitions list please get in touch with Vanessa Lumley at school or email email@example.com. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Kia Ora Parents and whanau.
I trust everybody is keeping warm during these frosty times.
Term three is a very busy term with no holidays set for the term.
Year 9-13 conferences will be held in the Whare Toi which is best accessed through the Te Rangitautahanga Road entrance.
With some of our students, we are having an issue with them arriving at school on time. I am asking that parents reinforce the point that school starts at 8.45 and that all students should be at school by that time. Your support here would be much appreciated.
We also have a Teacher Only Day planned for Wednesday 16th August which is one of the Curriculum Refresh Days organized by the Ministry of Education. This means that the school will be closed for instruction on that day for staff to participate in professional development around the new curriculum.
Please do not send your children to school on that day.
The building work around the school is progressing well with us hopefully having the Technology block back in operation next term and the new Secondary building available at the beginning of 2024.
The new Junior block is still in the planning stages and will be a little way off so those classes will remain in the prefabs at the front of the school for a little longer than expected.
