Whole School Events

Skate Day 2018

It was a chilly but very enjoyable day at Tekapo Springs ice skating! 

Well done to all the children who "stuck at it" and improved all day long! 

Ski Day 2018

Perfect weather, brilliant parent helps and wonderful behaviour and resiliience from all of our tamariki made for a fantastic ski day this year. The staff who attended were very impressed with all involved and a great day was had by all. 

Open Day 

Thanks to the wonderful, supportive whanau who came along to our open day. 

The fancy dress competition was exceptional, and the whole school jump jam performance a hit. 

We hope you enjoyed the opportunity to pop in and see what happens in the various classrooms! 

Cross Country

We were incredibly lucky with our weather for the cross country this year. The course was in good condition to provide challenge to the children but still be pleasant conditions for spectating. 

We are extremely proud of all participants - everyone was amazing both as competitors and spectators. 

A special thanks to our senior students for their brilliant job marshaling around the track! 


Thank you to the Home and School for organising another successful wheel-a-thon. 

Well done to all of the children who were beautifully behaved, and almost wore out the track! 


Congratulations to everyone for making GROW IT! such a successful day!   


The 2018 School Triathlon was held in magnificent conditions on Friday the 2nd of March. 

A huge effort was put in by all participants!
