Key Dates for 2023

Monday 30th January - Meet the teachers - open day in classrooms between 9-3

Term 1 - Tuesday 31st January - Thursday 6th April

In school holidays:  Easter Good Friday  – Tues 11 April &  ANZAC Day Monday 25th April

update  21.2.23- Kia ora all, 

Teachers who are NZEI members are required to attend a Paid Union Meeting on Tuesday 28th February, 2-3.30 at West Melton. As this involves over 80% of our teaching staff across Waitaha School we will be unable to offer our regular classroom programmes on the afternoon of 28th February. To enable teachers to travel to the meeting venue in West Melton, I have asked Cross Country Rentals to collect our young people from each site at 1.15- expecting that they will load and leave by 1.30. Our young people will have lunch at school.

I realise this may inconvenience whanau and I apologise, however, teachers who are NZEI members are required to attend this meeting.

We will have a skeleton staff across all sites. Please contact your teacher if you need to access this BUT please note that parents/caregivers will be responsible for collecting their young person at the end of the school day.
