Kia ora tātou, We have had to change the last day of school for our students to Tuesday 14th December as we are changing the teacher only day. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Kia ora tātou The end of the year is nearing fast. We have had to move back the last day of school for this year to Monday 13th December, as we did not have our Term 3 mid-term break or teacher-only day due to covid level 4. This finish date complies with the correct number of Ministry of Education school days for 2021.
