A message from our Principal...
I am very pleased to inform you that the paddock has dried out well enough and we have had it mowed and rolled in preparation for your parking use. Thanks to Rob Gibson at Wharehine for his generous support. You are welcome to use it from Tuesday 29 November. The BOT has gone to an immense amount of trouble to secure this facility for your use so please do make use of it rather than parking in the busy road. Kindly note that at this stage it is very much a ‘weather dependant parking option’ and should we experience torrential downpours, it may need to be closed for a while until it dries out again. You are also requested to take extreme care when using the paddock. Keep your speed down and be aware that children are around. The school has installed a pedestrian gate in the fence corner closest to the school. This is to ensure children are kept safely away from the car entrance to the paddock.
