We had a great day out at Okahu Wharf. Tim was lucky enough to catch a baby snapper. Everyone had a great day and we can't wait to go again.

Coffee Group and Dance

It has been an amazing start to the year with the Coffee group who have been visiting Pakuranga College and their Cafe to practice social skills and conversations. Also they have been lucky enough to be involved with Auckland University dance students preparing for a performance in the last week of school. Well done!

Te Hapori Open Evening

To the Parents, families, and caregivers

Thank you so much for the fantastic turnout last night for the first “Te Hapori Open Evening”. It was so inspiring to see the amount of siblings and grandparents who attended to make the evening such a great success.  It was truly humbling to hear such kind words spoken about all the teachers and teacher aides involved with all the young people. Thank you to those who purchased Mosaic’s, Sun Catchers, Button Art, Sausages, and raffle tickets. We hope they bring you as much joy and happiness and they did when we made them. Congratulations to Kerry for having the winning ticket for the Smartphone.
I would also personally like to thank my staff for all their hard work in making the evening run so smoothly and making the displays and building look beautiful.

I am looking forward to next term and our next Open evening being even bigger and better.
