Kia Ora Koutou

I am sure you all of you are very proud of your children after the great performance of the production Hats Off.  They worked really hard and I have many positive comments from the guests at the Matinee and others that attended the Evening Performance.  I would like to also thank Ms Smith, Mrs Murdoch and Rhonda for all their contributions to ensure that the Production was a success.


As mentioned in a notice that went out on Monday – we will not be having a School Float in the Kaeo Christmas Parade but children can still be part of the parade in the Decorated Bike section and a reminder the theme is Nursery Rhymes.

Remember that we are having a Teacher Only Day this coming Monday the 23 November so tamariki will not be at school on that day.

The Community Bonfire Night is now on Saturday 28 November –  6pm.  There will be games, a Guy for the Bonfire competition and a Cupcake decoration competition.
