Student Involvement

School Assemblies

These occur fortnightly on a Friday.  The Student Leaders coordinate assemblies and content includes sharing of class work, sports reports, award recognition and presentations.

All parents and caregivers are welcome to attend.





Agriculture Day

An Agriculture Day is held each year in October. In keeping with the rural nature of our school we encourage all children to look after a calf, lamb or goat and present it at school on this day.

Guidelines are available to assist with rearing these animals.

All participants are then eligible to attend Group Day in Otorohanga.


Student Librarians: Brianna Rapley, Lacey Gray, Amelia Larsen, Paige Fitzgerald

The library is open from 8am until 3pm on most school days.
