Steam Train

There was great excitement at school today, when a steam train made it’s presence known, through it’s loud whistle!

The train stopped right outside our school, where it prepared itself to pull the carriages up the Koputaroa Incline. The Koputaroa Incline is one of the steepest in the country.

The children thoroughly enjoyed seeing the train, steaming and wheeshing!

Whanau Day

On Thursday 5 June, we held our annual Whanau Day and it was just lovely to have all the whanau (parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles) here to share and celebrate the children’s learning.

Family/Whanau are special and we enjoy welcoming you into our school to be a part of your child’s learning.

Many thanks to all of you who came in and shared this day with the children. You’re always more than welcome to pop in at any time and we’ll see you again next year at our next Whanau Day.
