Art Week and Gallery
Staff and students worked hard last week on a range of art projects during our art week. These included individual art pieces, the class canvas and calendar art. The students focus and perseverance while working on these projects was exceptional and there was a very positive hum across the school all week. The staff's extra efforts in preparing for and managing these projects was greatly appreciated and the parent helpers who came in each day invaluable. The individual art pieces and canvases can be viewed during our Art Gallery on Monday 7th to Wednesday 9th September. Please read the PTA section of the website or newsletter to keep up to date with the canvas auction and calendar sales.

Change of School Zone
The Kohimarama Board of Trustees along with other school Boards from the Eastern Bays has been involved in discussion around school crowding and zones, particularly related to St Heliers School, and after a community consultation period we have had some changes to our school zone. These do not affect any existing school families. The new zone information can be found on the website under the enrolment button.
