More generosity from CMP Construction. The money that we paid for the driveway to be done is going to now be donated back to the school to spend on technology. Each team is discussing current technology needs and we will purchase goods next term.

The Ted Manson Foundation is sponsoring two teams in the Under 9 section of the tag at Waitakere Rugby Club. Training sessions will be held on the GEPS fields at 3:15 on Thursdays. Games are on Friday nights at The Trust Stadium. The Ted Manson donated vans will be used for transport on these nights. Games start October 19. If you want your child to be involved please get a form from the office.

Thanks to everyone who turned up to the socials last week. A HUGE extra thank you to Ngā Kaitiaki who organized and sold kai. We are very appreciative of their mahi. Every social needs a great DJ and Marcos, father of Elesiya, did an amazing job for all 3 socials. “Baby Shark” was clearly a favourite across all age levels. Marcos provided all of his equipment and his time free of charge. Thanks Marcos - you are amazing!

This week, we celebrate our term’s learning with a concert for each team. We would love to see whānau here to watch the performances. Dates and times are:

Wednesday 26 September - 1:45 - Tui team

Thursday 27 September - 1:45 - Kiwi team

Thanks to all of the teachers and tutors who put so much time and energy into these performances.

Last week’s Principal Proud Pupil Pizza Prizes went to all of the students who made the finals of the school talent quests. We certainly have some amazing students and we were really impressed with their efforts.

The artwork below will be turned into tiles and permanently displayed in Auckland's busiest rail station when it opens in 2023.

Congratulations Ezra, Sam, Emma-Rose, Mahdi, Anarena, Georgia, Azalea, Alisha, Alishba, Laquiesha, Riannah, Della, Cameron, Ella, Tristan, Leala, Arnica, Gezel, Mali-Rose, Onycha, Celia, Isobel, Raphael & Raphael.

We hope you have a lovely time over the upcoming school holidays. Hopefully the sun will shine and we can enjoy the last term being outdoors and enjoying our beautiful open spaces.
