Educating children for their futures, today

Welcome to Te Aroha Primary School where children from Year 1 to 8 are challenged to be the best that they can be in an inclusive learning environment.

 

Situated in the heart of Te Aroha and nestled under the mountain on a 4.6 hectare campus, our children have a sense of belonging, pride and are valued in their cultural heritage.

 

We always encourage our children “To Accept The Challenge” which is our school motto. This is the challenge to learn, to explore, to have a go at new opportunities and to have fun.

 

We invite you to join us on this journey.

Netball Reminders 🙂

Thu May 20 09:31pm

Netball:
Just a reminder to all those who signed up to play.


 
1) The fees deadline has well passed so if you haven’t paid then you probably haven’t been registered therefore you are not eligible to play.


2) From Yr 5-8 you have committed to a team, therefore you are expected to be there every weekend or you let your team down. 8 weekends is all it is and you are expected to put your team first. If you are injured you are still expected to be at the courts to support your team.


3) Doing a duty is a non negotiable requirement for ALL THOSE PLAYING. If you are unable to do yours then you must find someone to stand in for you. Anyone over the age of 14 is acceptable. You will probably only get 2 duties maximum all season.


Thank you to those who helped out last weekend- you are off the hook!!!! Thanks to Cam Melrose for organising this for us as it takes a lot of time.


 


Thank you,


Mrs Paul

LUNCH IN SCHOOLS PROGRAMME – Week 1 Term 2

Sun May 02 05:28pm

LUNCH IN SCHOOLS PROGRAMME


Kia ora whanau


I am very pleased to be able to inform our parents that the Lunch in School programme for our school starts this term.


The company contracted to supply the lunches is Libelle and they have been providing lunches to schools for a number of years and provide a balanced and nutritious meal for our children.


Below is the menu for Week 1 starting on Monday 3 May.


A few things to note regarding the provision of food for children at our school for parents to note:



Please note that our Breakfast Club will continue to operate each morning before school as usual.



You are also asked to continue providing your child with a morning tea snack and a snack for our Kai break.
Lunch will be provided for your child each day from Monday to Friday from Monday 3 May until the end of the year.



The lunch menu for the following week will be put on the school App by Friday of the week prior to serving so that you know if you want to add anything extra yourself, into your child’s lunch box.



We have passed on the information you supplied us on the dietary needs sheet which each parent was asked to complete for each of their children, to Libelle.


 



Menu Week 1


You can see from the menu that it certainly will be a really good lunch for our students.


Lunches will be delivered to the classroom where all students will be given their lunch. All containers and food waste will be collected by the company and disposed of off site. All containers are biodegradable ( and compostable) in line with our schools Enviroschools sustainability belief.

Kia ora parents and whanau


Our school will be taking part in the ANZAC DAY remembrance service tomorrow – Sunday 25 April.


I would like to invite all of our children and their families to march with the school on Sunday.


If you would like to join with the school, please be at the RSA at 9.50am where Mrs Gamble will meet you.

Everyone will line up outside the RSA at 10.15am and walk to the cenotaph at the clock tower in Kenrick Street. Our school will also lay a wreath in remembrance of those who have lost their lives in service of our country.

Parents are please to pick their children up at the RSA after the parade. This should be at about 11.15am.


This is a request to our senior students and leaders to make a special effort to be there if you are able to.
