Kia ora e te whānau
This Thursday the 4th of August is our school-wide tree planting day. I wanted to share the schedule for the day with you.
Just a couple of points to note:
- Food and water for students and staff will be provided on the day by Meridian Energy.
- Please can your children bring their drink bottles to reduce waste.
- Gloves will be provided.
