Helpers wanted to move bark
17 Jul 2024

Kia ora whānau.  Some of you might have noticed that we have had a new basket swing installed at the front of the school.  We were unsure of timelines, however 12m of bark has arrived today and needs to be moved under the swing.  If you have some time later today, from 2:00 pm to help us move the bark so that the swing will be operational for tamariki on Monday that would be great.  If your Rūma Pāua or Mangō tamariki are at a loose end this afternoon, I'm sure they could help move the bark too.
