One sleep til our School Fair!

With the Fair starting at 3.45pm tomorrow students can come to school in mufti! Cakes to be dropped off in Room 10 - see you at the Fair!

Cake Stall Information for the School Fair

Red Beach Cake Stall

A box will be coming home with your eldest child today. This box will seem pretty overwhelming, but we hope it can be a fun activity for your child/ren who would like to contribute to their school fair.

Please fill it with baked goodies and return to school on FRIDAY 19 MARCH

Please clearly label the outside of the box with what you have baked including the main ingredients.  If it is gluten-free please write this.  Please specify if you have used any type of nuts.

Ideas – cakes, slices, uncooked slices, fudge, coconut ice, cookies. You may wrap up little parcels of what you have made in clear cellophane and put in the box.  Be as creative as you like.

Thank you for your continued support

Level 2 Next Week

Level 2 March 2021

What great news that we are moving back to level 2 and the tsunami evacuation call for parts of NZ has been lifted! 

All students can return to school on Monday. We continue to be reminded to follow the Level 2 rules 

Keeping with the Government’s requirements under Level 2 the following procedures will be in place.  All of these procedures are to ensure the school is safe and hygienic. We will continue to reinforce the key messages of good hygiene practices such as washing hands and coughing into your elbow.

Drop Off and Pick Ups

Under level 2, all schools need to be able to identify and contact trace anyone that has been on site through a Contact Tracing Register and we are obliged to eliminate transmission risks where possible. Therefore, we have organised a drop off and pick up process, that will mean no parents can enter the school grounds at these times. 

We will have  staff up at the front gate and path near the bus shelter to welcome the students. We encourage the Year 1 and 2 students to enter the ground by the path near the bus stop.  For Year 1 this would mean a short walk directly to their classes. Lucy Foster gate will remain open.

Parents picking up a child during school hours will need to come to the office as no parents will be allowed beyond the office to the classrooms. Please can you scan the QR code on display on the Office door.  Adventure playgrounds will be closed before and after school and the school grounds closed on the weekends.

Teachers will bring Year 1 and 2 students up to the gate at 2.50pm unless you make other arrangements directly with the class teacher.

Safe Environment for all:

  • Children who are unwell are not permitted to come to school.  If your child presents as unwell, you will be phoned and your child will need to be collected immediately from the office.

After School Care - will be operating, they will be contacting parents directly. You can contact them at -

School Lunches: will be available

Digital Devices Year 3 to Year 6: If possible it would be very helpful if the children can bring devices to school as the use of school devices cannot be used by multiple students due to this becoming a high touch surface that is difficult to continually clean throughout the day. 

Drinking fountains will be covered, so children will need to bring their own named water bottles to school.

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday and thank you one and all for your support this week.

Warm regards

Moving to Level 3 March 1st

Here we go again and thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.  As you heard last night, we are now back in Alert Level 3 and will be until Sunday at the earliest.  

The key message for you is to keep your children at home if you can.  We want to assure you that we will continue to support your child’s learning at home.

If you have no choice but to send your child to school please fill out the following form today by 10pm so we can prepare. 

If you register your child more information will come as school will look different.

Please click on this link ( to register your child to attend school from Monday 1 March 2021.

It is very important that students do not return to school if they are able to be at home, as the government advice remains the same - stay home, follow the rules, save lives.

Stay safe
