Our Vision…

Principal’s Message:

Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whānau and Friends of our School

I would like to extend a huge thank you to our Cromwell Community for support we received at our Harvest Gala Day last Saturday. The weather was perfect, the atmosphere relaxed and the entries for exhibits were first class. Without the dedicated team on our FOTS  committee this event would not be possible. Thanks to our parents and staff for your strong support for this event.

Congratulations to our children for their excellent achievement at the Otago Primary Schools Triathlon, which was held last Thursday in Cromwell. Our Year 5 boys teams were placed 1st  (Martijn, Ezra, Baxter) and 3rd (Cormick, Thomas, Hadley) which is an outstanding result and Grace had an excellent race in the year 6 girls individual event. Overall, Central Otago children were very well represented on the podium across all age groups.

Unfortunately the Top Bike competition which was to be held today at Alexandra was cancelled due to the rain. The year 6 children who were entered in this event were disappointed to miss out on a challenging but fun day.

We will be having a school ANZAC Day assembly on Thursday 4 May 2pm.   Parents are invited to join us for this formal occasion. Children will be sharing some aspects of their learning about ANZAC Day, prior to a parade and wreath laying ceremony by the school flagpole. Our last assembly for the term is held tomorrow, Thursday 13 April, 2:15pm.

Ka pai to wiki – Have a good week. Nga mihi nui, Sharon.
