Fruit in Schools

Garden to Table
We have a very plentiful school garden which has been developed by our “Garden to Table” programme. Older students work in the garden every Thursday, then use produce from it to make a meal for their class. Students not only develop some practical gardening skills, they also learn about the science behind it and enjoy a delicious meal.
We ask families to support their child’s schoolwork with regular reading at home. All students will be provided with a book bag when they first enrol and their class teacher will send home books, basic facts and spelling words.
Books, magazines, recipes, comics, instructions: encouraging reading in any form is a great way to support learning. Whether being read to, reading with or reading by themselves, reagrdless of which language students are reading they are being immersed in words.
We provide a healthy lunch every day for all students thanks to the “Ka Ora, Ka Ako: initiative. We can cater for special dietary needs if requested.
Scooters and bikes may only be ridden to and from school if students are wearing a cycle helmet. At break times they can only be ridden on the bike track.
We provide all stationery free to students.
