Community

We are lucky to be part of such a diverse, warm and welcoming community and welcome input into the school. We are focused on creating a community of care for a community that cares; strong involvement and enthusiasm, authentic partnerships and supportive networks are what gives our school the ‘learning buzz’ we are so proud of.

Community Forums:
We have Community Forums twice a term, either in our staffroom, or in our hall (depending on numbers!)

You are welcome to come and share ideas, hear about what we are doing, learn how you can help your children at home, or just to have a cuppa and a biscuit with us! Email rsvp@takakaprimary.school.nz to find out what is on the menu at our fortnightly forums.

Thank Goodness it’s Friday (TGIF):
We also have a coffee cart come every Friday, and invite parents and the community to come and have Friday morning tea with us. Cheryl even brings a basket of goodies and has EFTPOS, so please stop in at 11am on Friday!

Assembly:
Our Values assemblies are now on Monday morning every fortnight (odd weeks – so we can remind you in each newsletter) and parents and families are welcome to attend to hear about our new value and special weekly events.

In weeks 3,6 and 9 we have celebration assemblies – On Friday at 1:40pm. Hosted by either the junior, middle, or senior hub. This is when we celebrate our values winners.

On other Fridays during the term we have our School Unity Time; a time for us to sing and practice our Kapahaka. This is lead by Whaea Jaye and supported by Brad with haka and Jenny with waiata.

Sports:
If you have a sport that you’re happy to coach or support, please email brad@takakaprimary.school.nz We have a senior sports rotation and netball, miniball and football on offer during lunchtimes. We also have chess, puzzles, colouring, art, weaving, wheels, coding and minecraft lunchtime clubs… if you’d like to join us, or have something you’d like to share or learn, please get in touch!
