Sanctify them  by the truth; your word is truth.

CARE FOCUS: I am making sure that I treat others with respect and kindness.


Tena koutou whanau ma – warm greetings to everyone.
I need to draw your attention to a challenge we are currently facing in the school and to ask for your support as we work to address it with our students.
Simply put, some of our students, mostly in the Year 7 to 10 classes but possibly others as well, are bringing vapes to school and smoking. We know it is happening because we have been able to work with some who have admitted to doing so and we are pleased to have their commitment to stop doing this. Others we know about through reliable testimony but there is a lot of deception and denial taking place so we feel this is a deeper issue than just the vaping that we need your support with.
Vaping comes into the same category as other illegal substances in the school and we have been taking the step to stand students down when vaping occurs. Like any area of misconduct, the goal is to have the activity stop and that students are repentant and working with us to address the area of concern. We do this with Godly counsel, prayer and support. We are effective when we, the students and whanau are working towards achieving positive outcomes and sometimes this is a long and challenging journey – but doing it together is the key. Sometimes, sadly, we are not successful with achieving a change and in this situation we seek the counsel of the Board of Trustees to give us direction and make recommendations or conditions about continuing enrolment.
I would like to ask that you have conversations with your young ones and help reinforce the message that vaping is not permitted at school and that it is a real health hazard, especially for youth. I would also ask that if you have any concerns that your young one might be vaping that you raise it with them and ask to check their bags before they head off to school. Please also keep us in the loop if you have concerns so we can work together on this one.
Nga mihi mahana

Due to the Kerikeri Road repairs starting next week on the 25th Oct for 3 weeks, there will be changes to the bus schedule.

In the morning the bus will leave 15 minutes earlier at 7.45am from the Proctor Library.

All pick ups along Kerikeri Road in the morning will have to come to the Library for pick up, as the bus will go via Waipapa to Waimate then Kaikohe.

In the afternoon the bus cannot stop along Kerikeri road so all Kerikeri Rd drop offs (Old Packhouse market and Hospice) the parents will have to collect from the Library.

Senior secondary students and whanau: Please note: we do not have exam study leave!

NCEA examinations begin next week 7 November and for our students finish on Thursday 24th November. Please note: we do not have exam study leave and students need to keep attending everyday until all their external and internal assessments are completed for the year. Teachers have marked mock exams and students have received their grades and feedback. Important further learning will be taking place so please ensure full attendance for the best success outcomes.
Exam admission slips will be handed out on Thursday 3 November. Students need to keep this in a safe place and bring to each exam session they are entered for. Our exams are held at Northland College and the teacher walks over with the students. When the morning exam is finished, students are to return to school.
Student Tips:  Believe in yourself, study hard, minimise all other distractions, social media and focus on getting those high grades. Remember to look after yourself with adequate sleep, exercise, healthy food and water to keep your brain pumping.
Praying great success for you all as you drive your own learning! Through Christ you can do all things!
If you have any questions, please contact Yvonne Vujcich 0274915218.

On Saturday our junior kapahaka roopu, NGA HOIA O IHU KARAITI TEINA, performed at the Mana Kuratahi regionals competition in Whangarei. We are so proud of them all. They represented JESUS, their whanau, our kura and our community with honor, ministering to the crowd with their wonderful performance. Their behaviour on and off stage was excellent. For many of them, this was their first big performance and the first experience they have had at a large Maori kaupapa. This is just the beginning for this roopu, we will be training next year for many kaupapa to come. I would like to acknowledge the hard work of our tamariki, who were aged from 5 to 10. They gave up their time and trained hard and long every day for a month. Nga mihi nunui kia koutou katoa! I would also like to acknowledge Whaea Joey, Whaea Joni for doing our beautiful kai, Kororia, Mikaere, Rangatira and Kupu for all your mahi for our tamariki, our kaiawhi parents, Renee, Jan, Rochelle, Lana, Hayley, we couldn’t do it without you all. To Matua Te Kani, Cody and Tiana for your photography work every day and absolutely beautiful photos, nga mihi aroha kia koutou te whanau xo. Also thankyou to all the whanau who came to watch and were waiting outside after the performance, you all made our tamariki feel so special. WE LOVE YOU ALL!!
EPHESIANS 4;16  From whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in LOVE

Dear whānau,

As an end of year reward the Primary school, and possibly some secondary classes, are heading to Paihia beach (Te Ti side) on Wednesday 7th December for our annual beach day. The school shall be providing sun screen for all tamariki as well as the broad brimmed hats for protection. School kai will also be available for tamariki. Additional whānau will need to bring their own kai.

We have always been able to make this trip happen thanks to parents providing transport and so again we are asking for support. 

It is compulsory for all adults that are driving to have a full driving license and for the vehicle to have a current warrant of fitness. It takes approximately 2 weeks for a check to be completed. Please complete the reverse side of this letter and return it to the class teacher by Friday 18th November so that we can plan accordingly.

 Nga mihi,

David Prickett

Head of Primary

Term 4 Tuesday 18 October 2022




“Did you hear that?” Kalani looked around to see if anyone was there. Walking in the damp, dark bush, I hear footsteps that are coming closer and closer. I was too terrified to even carry on walking. Taking a deep breath, I think. What is gonna happen to me? I really don ‘t want to die.  


Terrified, still wondering if I’m going to make it out of this bush by the day time, I stopped to sit down and take a rest, I must have fallen asleep. Next thing I knew it was the middle of the night and I was in a cave. Wait, what was that?  A scream asking for help –  wait I hear it again looking around no one there to be seen.


Walking really slowly and quietly, asking God to help me and making sure I get out of this cave safely. Looking around everywhere to see if anyone is following me. Suddenly I see a black shadow run past my eyes. My heart started beating in my ears. Walking so slow looking to see what that black shadow was, really  hoping that I won’t end up dying in this cave alone. Suddenly I feel something grabbing my arm. I started to scream.


Screaming for my life I slowly turned around to see what grabbed my arm. There was no one there. So I carried on walking. I still had a really long way to go. I could not see what was in front of me. I thought my life was gonna end, when something grabbed my arm. 


Carrying on walking and there were 2 pathways, I didn’t know which one to walk through. I went through the second one and there was that black shadow that ran past me again. I tried to act like I wasn’t scared, to see if the shadow would come to me. to see who it is. 


The black shadow started walking towards me slowly. I looked at the shadow and started running and the shadow started running after me. I was running so fast like it was the end of my life because I didn’t even know who the black shadow was. I ran the wrong way and ended up at a dead end. Suddenly the black shadow walked up to me and everything went black.

I whispered please God look after my family and keep them safe.

The New Zealand Teachers Games (NZTG) is an opportunity for educators and support staff to have fun with their colleagues, to compete seriously or socially and to enjoy each other’s company on the sports field.

Sport is a big part the landscape in NZ schools and tertiary institutions. It develops culture and pride and is a key engagement vehicle for students in learning, in their institution, and within their wider community. Sport can contribute to academic and social outcomes with clear links to key curriculum competencies including Relating to Others, Participating & Contributing and Managing Self.

NZTG seeks to use sport to provide schools and tertiary institutions with team building and networking opportunities, creating positive health and well-being experiences for staff and encourages all to be a part of providing quality sport opportunities for their students.
