“Tamaiti ako ana ki te pā, ka tū kaha ki te ao”
We are so very proud of our Papatoetoe South School Kapa Haka Roopū - Te Pūtake.
They held several performances last week to celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori. Opening and closing our kura celebrations on Monday and Thursday and then showcasing alongside our community schools at Papatoetoe North School on Friday.
Their performance had us sitting on the edge of our seats as they projected pride and power. We were thrilled that so many whānau were able to come along and enjoy the celebrations.

Car Park Access
Kia ora e te whanau,
We are aware of the wet weather at the moment and have received requests for the school car park gate to be opened to allow for children to be dropped off at the school door. Unfortunately, we are unable to use this as our Special Needs vehicles are using this area for dropping off our students with additional physical needs and it is the only available space to do so.
The car park is tight and only has a single-lane driveway, so our traffic gets backed up. We have emptied half of our car park to make room for these vehicles but we are unable to fit in any more at this time.
Please park and drop off or walk with your child using our pedestrian entrances. As we are likely to have wetter weather throughout the term, please ensure your child has a raincoat or umbrella for these rainy days.
The pedestrian gate is opened for students at 8.15am.
Student safety is paramount and we thank you for your cooperation in keeping all of our tamariki safe.
Thank you for your support
Nau mai, Haere mai ki tō tātou kura!
