Community Consultation

Consultation link will be sent tomorrow via HERO. It is that time again in our biannual calendar to consult with whānau on what is important to them and therefore worth focusing on. This gives us good information to develop our strategic annual plans for 2023 and beyond. If you would prefer a paper copy, please contact the school. We ask that you return this by Monday, 12th September.

Protect. Respect. Integrity. Dare. Excellence
