Senior Karapiro School students at Avantidrome

Track Time.. Getting to grips with fixed wheelsThe strong winds and icy showers may have washed away our cycling day but the senior students still managed to have their velodrome session in the warmth of the Avantidrome. Our students did an amazing job with each of them mastering the fixed wheel bikes and giving the track a go. We were then treated to some real speed as the New Zealand team were put through their paces. It was great to receive feedback from the coaching staff about what a well behaved, well mannered and skilled group, our senior students are. Thanks to the parents who came along to support. Visit here to book a have a go session if you would like to try it out!!!

Cross Country Champs


Well done everyone on a great cross country champs today. All of our students ran hard and gave their best with lots of placings in all age groups. Thank you to everyone who helped out with setting up, making food, selling, supporting and transporting – we couldn’t have done it with out you!!

Book Character Day


Don’t forget book character day tomorrow. It is always a lot of fun. Have a dig around in the dress up box, or use your imagination to come up with a creative character.
All children get the opportunity to chat about their character tomorrow at assembly – so make sure that they have a fact or two up their sleeve.
Parents are very welcome to attend the book character assembly – it starts at 9.15 am and goes for an hour or so. After that please stay on and read a favourite book (or chapter) to a group of eager children. Morning tea will follow in the staff room. We also have a great selection of books from Wright’s Paper Plus in the foyer. You are VERY welcome to donate one to the school library. If you do, a bookplate with your family’s / child’s name will be placed in the book and they will be the first borrowers!
