Parent / Teacher / Student Interviews
Hi everyone,
I just want to say a huge thank you to all the whanau who came to discuss their children's learning, progress and achievement tonight.
It was so lovely to meet you all, especially some of the Mums and Dads that I don't get to see very often.
Keep up all the great work you are doing with your tamariki, especially with their alphabet and their number knowledge.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hestitate to make contact with me at school.
Kia ora
Ms Tataurangi

Perfect Pepperoni Pizza Fun

Today, in our table groups, we made perfect pepperoni pizzas.
We spread tomato sauce on the base, then we placed pepperoni circles on and lastly we sprinkled some cheese on top. Ms Tataurangi carefully put them in the oven to bake for 10 minutes. We cut our pizza into 8 pieces and we each ate a slice.
We made our own pizza books to read and share with our whanau. We are very clever Superstars.
