On Monday, the Tamariki and Taonga syndicates had a lovely visit from the Ronald McDonald Road Safety Show. Tomorrow they are being treated to a Blue Light Disco.
We continue to get a strong response to our unstructured play and other requests including a donation of rabbits and their hatch from the Wileman family. We have one wooden packing crate, but we’re still looking for more.
Warm Welcome To
Maya Shatura and William Barnard. We wish you a long and enjoyable time here at Matipo Primary.
Happy Birthday This Week To
Jude Brem, Arlo Powell, Tyler Pukepuke Anthony, William Barnard, Brooke Hari, Harmony Toia, Lucia Skellon, Erica Learmonth, and a happy belated birthday to Maya Shatura.
Future Leaders Day
On Monday Mrs. Clark and nine Year 6 children went to Waitemata Rugby Club for a Future Leaders Day run by Sport Waitakere. The children were given a chance to experience different kinds of leadership and work together learning new skills. They thoroughly enjoyed it and came away buzzing! Watch this space for where this may lead them!
