Tena koutou katoa
Nga mihi ki a koutou
Due to Health and Safety reasons we would appreciate children not arriving at school before 8.15 in the mornings. Classroom doors are generally not unlocked until then as teachers arrive and get organised for the day.  Thank you for helping us with this.
We now have a school app! We're aiming to make connection between home and school as easy and seamless as possible.

Team Tauhara practice their Kapa Haka this week
It was back to school for Bay of Plenty & Waikato Kiwibank delegates who arrived at Waipahihi School this morning.  After being welcomed by Sarah Sherriff, the delegates were given a brief on the school and its students.  From here the challenge was set  -  Kiwibank middle management took the opportunity to positively contribute to the growth and development of young New Zealanders by preparing, serving and enjoying a hot cooked meal for 70 Waipahihi Middle School students.
Team Up Events were happy to organise and facilitate this amazing and heartwarming event.  We pride ourselves to provide team building experiences that challenge and inspire staff to work together so that they can achieve their goals.
Team Te Ohanga had a wonderful time at their Matariki Disco last night.  Thanks so much to all the families who came along.

Only a few tables left. Get in quick.
