Parking: there will be additional parking available at the back of the church on the field. Follow the church driveway around to the left.

If anyone would like to volunteer or help on the day please email the school:

Last Wednesday 7 tamariki from Puketapu School participated in the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon πŸ’ͺ🏻

Unfortunately there was no swim so they did a beach run instead 🏝️

Lexi Gorrie loved receiving her medal from a local Basketballer Aaron Bailey-NowellπŸ…

All of our students showed the school values and the tamariki that participated, hope to have more Puketapu kids join in the fun next year.

Happy Easter from these cool bunnies & Makaia🐰🐰🐰🐰

🐾 Meet Rocky πŸΎ

We've got some paws-itively awesome news to share with you!

Meet Rocky, Mrs Pascoe's dog.

Rocky is a handsome 2-year-old Huntaway cross, and he's not just your average pup – he's trained to therapy level standards! πŸŒˆπŸ•

Rocky will be making a special appearance once a week at school, to spread joy, comfort, and wagging tails!

Puketau whānau, if you see Rocky trotting around the school grounds, don't hesitate to stop by and say hi! πŸΎ

Rocky is trained to therapy level, which means he's an expert in providing love and support to everyone he meets. He's especially fond of cuddles, so feel free to give him a gentle pat or share a warm embrace. πŸ€—πŸ•

Let's welcome Rocky, our furry friend, and make his weekly visits a highlight for everyone. Get ready for some tail-wagging, heartwarming moments! ❀️🐾

We trust our Puketapu whānau had a wonderful Waitangi Day.

Whether you spent time with your whānau at home, explored the beauty of our land, or engaged in cultural activities, we hope your day was filled with aroha and connection.
