Welcome to Room 18 for 2020!

Bula vinaka and Welcome to Room 18, Term 3.

Term 3 is going to be a busy term with a lot of sports, and two school exchanges that the children can be a part of. We are also looking forward to lots of learning in all our key curriculum areas.

High School Enrolments

Over the next few weeks, all Year Eights will have the opportunity to visit their high school that they want to attend next year. This is a very exciting time for all the children as they check out what awaits them at their chosen high school in 2021.


All children in Room 18 now have homework to take home every Monday and is due back the following Monday. Homework is compulsory for everyone in room 18.


It is great to see a number of pupils from our class taking up roles in the Lion King production. They have been working really hard over the past few weeks and they have given up most of their break times to practise their roles. The Lion King production will be staged at the school on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of September.
