Can I help in my child's class?

Yes. We welcome parent help. Please talk with your child's Kaiako to see how you can assist.

Will there be assemblies that I can come along to?

We hope to hold some form of hui (assembly) at our temporary school, however- our spaces are limited until we move in to our new build when we will have the use of our large purpose built hall and will be able to hold formal assemblies that parents can attend. There will be other opportunities and events that you will be invited to at our school in 2023.

How will I know how my child is progressing academically?

By using the Hero app you will receive regular updates about your child's learning, progress, and achievements. Find out about Hero.

You will also be invited to attend a conference with your child and your child's teacher twice a year to discuss your child's progress and goals. This is also an opportunity for your child to share their learning with you.
