Welcome back to Wakari for 2020

Chris Smith —

It has been great to see the smiling faces return to our fabulous school.

I hope you and the whanau had an adventurous, and at times, peaceful break across the holiday period. Schools are empty and sad places without the children and they have certainly breathed life back into the place since their return.

There has been a feeling of calm across the school to begin and that has been supported by the great work from the office and support staff getting our children set up with stationery for the year. Our teaching staff has remained the same and this has also contributed to a warm start for all.

Best wishes to our Year 6 cohort and senior syndicate teachers that head to camp next week. A massive thanks to those parents who are also attending to ensure the success of the camp.

Please pay close attention to the website and facebook accounts to keep up to date with what is going on within the school. Please also ensure that you have signed up to our email tree (on our website) and that your contact details, if changed, have been updated.

Another thank you to Craig and Tim (our tireless caretakers) who have been busy with a number of tasks across the holiday period.

I am looking forward to an excellent year and if I can be of any assistance please do drop in and see me.
