Newsletter Notice —

As we near the halfway point of term two, it’s time to reflect on all the fantastic opportunities at Queenstown Primary School.

Today we have had our third session of Development of Talents. It’s great seeing students in Years 3 to 8 working across the school, pursuing areas of interest. I have enjoyed running my extra Rippa rugby sessions and appreciated Chris and Brett's support.

Today we turned out in pink to mark the national anti-bullying day. It was great to see everyone getting behind this critical message in assembly.

Junior ice skating started this week with a number of excited little faces heading off to the rink to begin their annual program.

The Wakatipu Rippa Rugby tournament was held this week and attended by 90 students from school. This was a fantastic day out, and it was great to see QPS mixing well with the other schools and testing their skills.

Teachers have also been putting in extra effort this week, completing assessments and writing mid-year reports. These reports will go home at the end of the term and are the culmination of many hours of hard work. Thank you to all the staff for the dedication and effort that you have put into these reports.

As we settle into winter please ensure your child comes to school adequately dressed, with thermals or a warm jacket if needed. QPS students are resilient and it takes a lot to keep them from being outside during break and lunch. 

Have a productive and safe weekend in paradise.
