Long shot.... but our beautiful white Chinese silky chick has gone from school. If anyone sees or finds it around the area please let me know. It is super friendly and about 7 weeks old. There are no feathers left and the other 3 aracana are fine. Im gutted for the kids and myself who adored it!!
What a year that was! A massive thank you goes out to our PTA and Ray White Te Anau for their help with our end of year celebrations. The PTA organised our waterslide, tape the DP to the wall and Dunk the Teacher. Ray White Te Anau donated the sausages and helped the PTA cook and sell them. We are very thankful for their support! Enjoy the Summer holidays.

Junior Team Celebration UPDATE! Our Junior team will still have our shared morning tea together (food can be delivered to Room 11 & 12’s art bay, please name all containers & collect at the end of the day).
