Growth Mindset

You have probably heard a lot about Growth Mindset and how we encourage our students to use a positive attitude when working on tasks.  As part of everything we do we want our students to really try and not to give up.  Any learning requires focus, perseverance and practice, we want our students to have these skills.  We encourage you to model them at home as well, often students think that you find everything easy so explaining how much time and effort you have put into learning and perfecting tasks and skills will help them to better understand their own learning. 

Please ensure students are not dropped off outside of school on Remuera Road. Legally we are not able to treat this as a drop off area and it is not safe on such a busy road. 
Dilworth Ave is the designated drop off area.

Homework tasks will be posted on the school website on a weekly basis, however, if your child does not have assigned homework, they will have tasks that need to be completed.

Have a wonderful week!

A few reminders...

Just a reminder that our students are no longer allowed to use the kitchen to cook their noodles, unfortunately it has become a very difficult task to manage. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but we appreciate your understanding.

Please make sure to call the office by 9am to report any absences or email with a reason would be appreciated.
Contact on 09 523 1241 or

Students are not permitted to use cell phones during school time. If your child needs to contact you, or you them, please do this through the office.

If your child is running late, please call and inform the office. All students are to report to the office before going to class.

We need to emphasis the importance of our students handing in their devices and their valuables i.e Wallets, bank cards. We cannot be responsible for items that are lost or misplaced that are not handed in for safe keeping.

Please remember that all students need to have a water bottle as we are trying to avoid them using the glassware in the kitchen.
We have had a few cases of the flu so please help us prevent the spread of these viruses where you can.

We have a number of sick students and staff members at the moment.  Please support us with encouraging students to cough and sneeze into their inner elbows and to wash their hands regularly so they don't spread germs.
