A message from our Tumuaki
On Friday, 11 August, Mairangi Bay School hosted our very first Matariki evening service for our school community. Matariki is a time for our tamariki (students), kaimahi (staff) and whānau (families) to come together to acknowledge the year gone by and make plans for the year ahead. Our Senior Kapa Haka (over 80 students from Years 5 and 6), led our service, recognising the importance of this special celebration.
Our tamariki, whānau, and community partners joined together, celebrating the Māori New Year, enjoying a free sausage sizzle, coffee and sharing stories together. It was the perfect evening to celebrate our kura as we “learn together to create a better tomorrow”, under the stars.
Please join us at the ONZA MARIMBA FESTIVAL on Saturday 2 September.

After School Activities
Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand has asked that we share the following information with our school community.
This winter, between Monday 12 June and Saturday 30 September, participating community pharmacies in Auckland will provide a Minor Health Conditions Service for Māori and Pacific people, children aged under 14 years, and community service card holders.
The service allows pharmacists to have a clinical consultation and provide advice as well as medication if needed for a select set of minor health conditions no cost to the patient.
It also includes whānau members of a child with similar symptoms. For example, if the pharmacist determines your child needs treatment for scabies and they have older brothers or sisters, or you yourself also have symptoms, they may provide advice and medication for all of you.
The following health conditions are included in the Minor Health Conditions Service:
Eye inflammation and infections
Pain and fever
Minor skin infections
If your condition needs further support, the pharmacist can tell you the best place to go to get further help.
Let’s spread the word to our friends and whānau about this new service! It’s also important to remember that you can always speak to your local pharmacist for free health advice, even if you are not eligible for this service.
Participating pharmacies can be found by going to HealthPoint and searching “Minor Health Conditions”. You can also find a list here.
