Order forms have now be sent home for our class and individual photos. As we take the photos 'in-house' all of the profits stay with the school and are used to purchase resources and fund activities.

If you missed the order form you can download one here.

What a photogenic bunch!

There are a range of ways the school communicates with the community to keep you up to date with school events. These include:

  • Emails from classroom teachers and our school office.
  • Event notices and newsletters sent home with students.
  • Our school website contains:
  • Online calendar - you can add either individual or all events from our school calendar to your personal one.
  • Notice database - we endeavour to make a online copy of all our notices that are sent home available on the school website. These can be found in the Notice database under the Quick Links heading on the right side of this page.
  • If a teacher needs to discuss something specific to your child they will usually telephone or email you.


We highly recommend the NETSAFE.ORG.NZ website as an excellent source of information and advice for parents and students on how to keep safe when online.

Our main advice to parents is to remove online devices from their children at bedtime - the vast majority of incidents occur late at night when students have unsupervised access.
