Principal’s Message:

Kia ora Parents and Whānau

Welcome back to Term 3. We also welcome back our group of travellers who visited the Battlefields of Italy, Belgium and France. What a great privilege it was to be able to take our students on such an emotional learning journey. The highlight for our Principal was seeing the growth of maturity and responsibility displayed by our students. They certainly were a credit to their families, school and the Turangi Community.

We also had 2 students representing our school at the New Zealand Area Schools National Sports Tournament in Whangarei. Congratulations to Rakera Tukiwaho-Wade and Airon Reweti-Clark for making it into North Island Teams, and then Airon being selected for the New Zealand Area Schools Netball Team. A big thank you also to Derek Downes who went as the Netball Team Coach and Paula Reweti-Clark as manager, Cook and Laundry person.

We have our Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences this coming Wednesday 9th August and Wednesday 16th August 2017. Appointment times have been sent out for Year 1 – 8 Students. Year 9 – 14 student’s teachers are available from 9th July 3 – 5pm in the school Library and 16th July 4 – 7pm in the School Library

This is an opportunity for you to come into school and discuss your children’s progress. If these times do not suit you, please feel free to discuss other times with your child/rens teachers.

I would like to acknowledge the work that is being put into preparing our students for Taiopenga which take place in Week 9 of this term. To our tutors and students well done.

Nga mihi,

Denise New

Deputy Principal
