To create an environment and culture where being the best you can be is our norm.
Here at Huapai District School we are seeking to develop children who are confident and self assured in purpose, who carry a voice of positive influence and consistently deliver at their best.
Huapai is known for its fruit. I have always believed you can judge a tree by its fruit. I’d like to believe, the fruit of what we desire to see in thinking, in learning and in character is evident in the quality and depth of our children.
We are a zoned school and all students who live within the school zone are automatically accepted following proof of address provided to the office.
This afternoon we welcome you to one of three sessions to find out more about what happens in your child’s classroom and for your child to share their current learning with you.
Our sessions start at 3:30, 4 and 4:30pm promptly. After the classroom teacher has explained some of the unique attributes of your child’s class, there will be time for your child to share their learning / books with you.
Please remember to bring your child with you so they can share with you what they’re doing in class.
Thank you for making your booking online and arriving at your group session ready to start on time. https://www.schoolinterviews.co.nz/code/ayqqw
Our book fair will be open in the library until 5pm today.
Today, Friday 19th May, our school is holding a mufti day in support of Pink Shirt Day.
In Aotearoa, Pink Shirt Day is a day led by the Mental Health Foundation that aims to create schools and workplaces where all people feel safe, valued and respected. It is a day to spread aroha and kindness, celebrate diversity and put an end to bullying.
Today our students are invited to wear a pink shirt to mufti day and bring a gold coin to donate to this worthy cause. We hope to see our school transformed into a sea of pink for Pink Shirt Day!
Tonights fire performance has been moved to 5pm-7pm on the soccer field if it isn’t raining.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Tomorrow there will be a bake sale at lunch time, held outside of rooms 6-10. This is to raise funds for our Year 6 Camp happening later this year. Please send your child(ren) to school with some cash if you wish for them to purchase something.
Our school emails have been down since Friday afternoon. All is resolved now, But this has meant that all emails sent to ‘@hds.school.nz’ emails have not been received between Friday afternoon and Monday morning 9am. This also means that all phone messages or absentee alerts sent in via SchoolApps or the school website have also not been received during this time – as these are set up to be received into the school office email.
Can we please ask that you resend any emails to staff members (including the School Office) that were sent since midday Friday.
Can we also please ask that you either re-submit your absentee message or register your child’s absence through the absentee button on your HERO home page.
Please feel free to call us at the School Office if you have any questions: 09 412 5042
Thank you for your cooperation and we apologise for any inconvenience.
