The children of today are the leaders of tomorrow!
We are now in week 7 and the term is flying by. Spring is upon us and we have many things to celebrate - academic and sporting achievements. We are so proud of the work our tamariki are doing in school and out in the community.
This week Tumanako Waa and Arana Cronin-Stone were presented with the Porirua Rotary Leadership Awards at Elim Church. It was wonderful to acknowledge their efforts in our school and what they do in the wider community. It was lovely to see Jack Chapman and Rosa Stratford (past students) also receiving this award for their work at Titahi Bay Intermediate.
On Friday, 8 September, we will be celebrating our Netball and Hockey teams with a prizegiving and shared kai at the Baptist Church, next door to our school. The netball prizegiving will be from 1.20pm - 2.10pm and the hockey prizegiving will begin at 2.15pm and finish at 3pm. Please send your child to school on Friday with a plate of kai to be shared at the prizegiving. This kai will be stored in the staffroom. All whanau are welcome to attend to help celebrate our team's achievements this season. All uniforms are to be returned to the school office for your $15 refund.

This year over 11,000 students from about 350 schools participated in the inaugural Kiwi competitions. The competitions were designed by New Zealand teachers for New Zealand primary, intermediate and secondary school students and are based on the New Zealand curriculum. The curriculum areas covered were Science, Mathematics and English.
The grades were calculated as a raw mark out of 40, an overall percentage, percentage scores for different strands of the various curricula, and a descriptive grade (Cut score)
0 - 49
We are so proud of all of our students who took part. The results they achieved are as follows:
