2023 - Term 1. We welcomed some new students and two new teachers - Melissa Curtis in Pukeko and Sophie Del Monica in Piwakawaka.Lots of Summer fun and learning happening at school this term, including our usual swimming, kapa haka and swim/jump competition. Piwakawaka learned lots about the moon and created some great art work, as well as gathering and showing data; Kahu worked on spinners and made fruit kebabs and Pukeko made some wonderful potions while learning about the maths involved. 

Term 4 has been very busy in the lead up to Christmas. There have been lots of fun activities inside and out, including Christmas mufti day, House challenge, Big Day Out and Prizegiving.

Our Kahu tamariki planted Feijoa trees and digging the holes was made so much easier using the post hole borer donated to KMS by FARMLANDS.
