Kia ora whānau.

How exciting to reach spring! It’s such a lovely time of year seeing the lambs frolicking in the paddocks and the blossom and daffodils out in bloom. From a school point of view, it’s been a great winter for us. I can count on one hand the amount of days we have had to have the children playing inside at lunchtime, which makes life a lot easier when teaching in the afternoon.

The teachers and I had a very productive and inspiring day on Friday at Rangiora New Life School with our colleagues from our Kahui Ako (Community of Learners). It was great to be able to collaborate and learn alongside other small schools and rural area schools. We hope you enjoyed your day off. I saw some gorgeous photos of skiing at Porter Heights!
