What a year this is! Today, the last day of term, we have a school full of tired people, both big and small, who are all in need of a break so that we can return on 12 October refreshed and ready for Term 4.

Be part of the School Board of Trustees

The School Trustees midterm Election is on the way. Information and nomination forms will be distributed to eligible voters via email. If you haven’t registered your email address with the school, please do so before this Sunday by emailing hollyf@mairangibay.school.nz.

Thank you

Thank you, parents, for your support of our school during this testing Covid journey. We have all had to respond quickly to the changing demands thrust on us. I am proud of how our team here has continued to meet the needs of our kids and how they have embraced new learning at speed to achieve this. Our Board and staff have helped inform the Education Review Office’s inquiry into Distance Learning and many of you have helped us by contributing to our own surveys. The biggest thank you, however, is for all of you who have supported your kids learning through the disruptions this year.

I hope that you can create some wonderful family memories over the next fortnight and look forward to seeing our kids back with us on 12 October. Take care.
