Happy Retirement Mrs Robcke!

Posted on 14 April 2017

Today we congratulate and thank Dinah Robcke on dedicating 38 years and three months to Horotiu School as Office receptionist.

She has worn many hats in her time here as parent, nurse, camp chef, listening ear, sounding board, taxi driver... and the list goes on.  She has always been professional and discreet regardless of her role and most of all, she has been a caring friend and colleague. 

Dinah has so often been the first face that people meet on coming to our school and today we farewelled her as she vacated her seat and headed off into the exciting chapter of retirement.  

We wish Dinah all the best for her future adventures with family and friends.  We know she will forever be valued as a special staff member and important part of Horotiu School's history.

Batten down the hatches everyone. Take care of each other, dodge the raindrops where you can, enjoy your families and check on your neighbours. Thanks for your support throughout this very busy term. We will see you back in two weeks. Have a safe and happy holiday break. Take care.

Senior Swimming Sports

Posted on 9 March 2017

An awesome day of swimming!

 An awesome day at the Senior Swimming Sports on Monday!  It was great to see high levels of participation, enthusiasm, and an eagerness to accept and rise to challenge by so many of our students.  Unfortunately the kids couldn't pull off a win against the Parents/Teachers team but it wasn't through a lack of trying.  

Thanks to all our parents who supported us by helping out with the event, cheering on the sideline and making arrangements for transport.  

Thanks also staff for picking up various roles to make this day a success.  

We loved the chants. We loved the heart.  An awesome team effort everyone!  Well done one and all.

We hope you are managing to dodge the raindrops today.  

Just a friendly reminder that we need as many hands as possible to help out on Sunday at the Gala (9am-1pm).    Thank you to those who have already offered an hour or two of your time by returning the pink slip.  If you haven't returned a pink slip, please call in, pick one up or call and let us know how you can help on the day.  

If you are unable to be there on the day, we understand and would still appreciate support prior to Sunday.  We are still organising flyers, posters, and setting up and are grateful of any time you can spare.  Please call in at the office.  

Now is also the time for donations of unwanted furniture, clothing, household items, bric-a-brac, etc.  We ask that it is in a clean, tidy condition and that appliances where possible are in working order.
