Kia ora Parents, Whānau, Caregivers and Friends of the School.

On Thursday our Kapahaka group, Nga Mokopuna o Kopuwai are performing at the Murihiku Polyfest in Invercargill. I would like to thank our Whānau for the support they have given our children. I look forward to meeting everyone outside the Stadium on Thursday morning. We will be able to watch several other Central Otago school who are also performing that day. Thanks to Mel Gerritsen for all her work with the Kapahaka group  – their performance is outstanding.

It was a perfect day at Cardrona yesterday for the Y3-6 ski day. We had about 50 students on the mountain on a beautiful blue sky day.  Thank you to all the parents who helped with groups and supported our children all day.

Today, Mason Stretch, Cromwell College, Wendy Brooks, Cromwell Primary and are attending a Community of Learning  (COL) Leadership Forum in Dunedin. Our three Cromwell Schools are in a unique position of having only three schools within our Community of Learners, which will enable us to specifically target the needs of the students within our community and focus on developing effective transition pathways between all education sectors within Cromwell. The speakers are tomorrow’s forum include Helen Timperley, Ian Taylor and Hekia Parata.
