Kia ora e te whānau


Half Day Year Year 7-10 ONLY

On Tuesday 29 November Kura Tuakana (Year 7 – 10) students’ school day will end at 12pm midday.  This is to allow our staff who are members of the PPTA ‘Post Primary Teachers Association’ Union to attend a paid union meeting in Hamilton 1.15pm.

We apologise that we have not been able to give more notice on this, the date is dictated by the union and we have just received the notification.  We understand that this is particularly unfortunate timing with the teacher only days on Friday 25th and Monday 28th November.  However, I do have an obligation to allow union members to attend these meetings when requested.

  • All Kura Tuakana (Year 7 – 10) students will be dismissed from their classrooms at 12pm midday. Please ensure that you have made arrangements for your child to be picked up from school at this time. 
  • School begins and ends at the regular time for all Kura Teina (Year 0 – 6) students.
  • The school bus schedule will operate at the usual times. Kura Tuakana school bus students will be supervised at school if they are not able to be collected at midday.

Thanks for your understanding on this matter.


Reminder of Teacher Only Days Friday 25 & Monday 28 November

I also wanted to remind you that we have two teacher only days coming up Friday 25 November and Monday 28 November.  These are Ministry of Education Provided Staff Professional Learning Days for our staff.
