Garden/Playground Project Complete!

Thursday, 8 May 2014

It has been something of a mission, but at last the garden renewal project is completed. As you can see from these few pictures, it looks really good! Thanks to those who have planned and worked to achieve the new look - we are so grateful!

There still remains a couple of jobs to complete the whole court/playground project - line-painting and replacement netball hoops etc - but overall things are looking terrific and the children certainly enjoy the new facilities. 

Garden Project / Rotorua Marathon Sponsorship

Thursday, 3 Apr 2014

You may well ask - what has our new Garden project got to do with the Rotorua Marathon on May 3rd - and what IS the School Manager suggesting? After the renewal of the concrete courts and expansion of the junior playground, we have now completed the replanting/upgrading of the entire remaining garden in front of the classrooms. This involved the removal of most of the current plantings, the planting of 3 new large trees to provide shade for the new playground in summer and thanks to the hard work of staff, parents and Board members, was completed during the most recent holidays. 

New Courts/Playground Project March 2014

Thursday, 27 Mar 2014

The new courts and junior playground are now almost completed! As you can see from the accompanying pictures it has been a huge job - but we think the results are fantastic! A special Thanksgiving gathering was held recently to thank all those who gave so willingly of their time and expertise to see this project completed. Work continues on a number of projects around the school including the re-siting of the three garden beds, the re-planting of trees and some new paint for classrooms. Further projects are in the pipeline also - watch this space!!
