Tēnā koutou e te whānau o te Kura A Rohe o Whaingaroa

On behalf of the entire staff in our kura, we welcome all of our students and their families into our school learning community for the 2021 school year. We hope that you have all had some quality time with friends and whānau over the summer break.

  • TUESDAY 9 FEBRUARY is the first day for all students.

  • Buses will start on this day.

  • We begin our day with a Whakatau to welcome new staff, students and their whanau. Existing students go straight into the hall from 8.45am. New students and their whanau are invited to meet at the roadside entrance outside the school hall by the waharoa – “Kai Matauranga”. Please be punctual as we would like to start this process promptly at 9.00am. We also invite us in the staffroom for a cup of tea before you head off for your day.

  • PARKING –  The bottom field will be open for whanau to park their cars in.

  • THURSDAY 11 FEBRUARY 7.00pm in the school hall.

  • All whanau members are invited to attend this INFORMATION HUI in our school hall.

  • All teachers will be present and we will be able to give more details about the year ahead.


The swimming pool is closed as it is undergoing repairs.

We are currently under negotiations with a new provider to run our canteen, so please note that we do not have a canteen operating in February – but hope to be up and running by the beginning of March.

Years 7-13 Stationery Lists will be given out to students during this first week of school.

Years 0-6 Stationery has been kindly sponsored by Satnam Bains – the proprietor of 4 Square Supermarket in Raglan. Again, we wish to express our sincere appreciation to Satnam for this generous gesture.

Continuing on from last year, please talk with your children and remind them that cell phones are not required for their learning programmes and so are NOT to be brought to school. Detailed information around our protocols will be shared with families to assist you to respond to this requirement. Please contact the Principal if you have any questions.
