Staff News

The school received notice on Sunday night from Tony Nemaia that he will be resigning from Matipo School from the end of 2018. We would like to thank Tony for his years of service to Matipo and wish him all the best for the future.

Daffodil Day

This year for Daffodil Day we had a sausage sizzle, juicie sale and lemonade stand.

Jude Hawkins in Room 22 came up with the brilliant idea of organising a lemonade stand to raise money for the Cancer Society and Room 15 and 24 jumped on the band wagon.  Room 15 organised and cooked a delicious sausage sizzle and Room 24 sold refreshing juicies.

Altogether we raised over $1400 for the Cancer Society – thanks to our Matipo Whanau for your support of our event.
