Well, it’s been quite a week. Tuesday morning and we were up to our gills in the Fonterra Milk for Schools launch. The media were here at the crack of dawn to see kids from a dozen or so local schools climb onto the especially liveried McDermott’s bus and head off to Fonterra farm tour.
Then, back at school; at 10.30 a range of civic dignitaries, Fonterra shareholders and personnel and community representatives gather in the hall for the formalities. Check out
At the close of nominations yesterday, we had received eight nominations for the three BOT vacancies.

Maori whanau meeting
WEDNESDAY 22nd MAY
In the staffroom @5.30pm
Children and other whanau / support people welcome. Bring a plate - we’ll finish by 7pm
It is so very important for you to have your say and we really do value your opinions and ideas. Children can only benefit from good relationships between their whanau and their school, and that is the underlying kaupapa of having a Maori whanau group.
If you have any questions or queries please feel free to leave a note for me at school or pop in and see me on a Friday at Kapa Haka (1.30pm in the hall) or flick me an email - email@example.com or a text 0211427532. And donʻt be surprised if I come and talk to you in person when you are at school, as for many people that is the best way to communicate – kanohi ki te kanohi – face to face.
