Talofa lava families! There’s been a change in plans and we will not be finishing early on 31st May. The teachers will still attend their paid union meeting and the support staff and I will supervise the tamariki who are at school. There will be minimal staff supervision available and you are most welcome to collect your child early from school. School will finish at the usual time of 2.45pm on Wednesday. Thank you. Ia manuia, lou aso.

Kia orana to all of our families!
The Teachers’ Union (NZEI) has called for a paid union meeting with all of its members on Weds 31st May from 1-3pm. Because all of my teachers are union members, we will not have the staff numbers to adequately supervise your children. Therefore our school will finish at 12.30pm on Wednesday. Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for understanding.
Kia manuia,
Whaea Paeariki Johnson (Principal)

Kia ora Whanau!
Rongomai will be open tomorrow along with every other school in Otara with the exception of 1 or 2 schools who won’t be.

Many of you were contacted by our teachers today so thank you for responding to their messages and phone calls. We totally understand that some of you will be keeping your tamariki home until you feel it’s safe.

After inspecting our school grounds & buildings today, Matua Phil reported that the school is in good condition – no damages or flooding.  Rongomai School Grounds – 14/02/23

In other news, the Breakfast Club will resume tomorrow with Whaea Claudia. She’s been preparing some yummy yoghurt which will be served alongside cereal and toast with some spreads.  We also have our free lunches tomorrow onwards. To all our new whanau, no need to pack your child’s lunch or keep them at home if there’s no food. Send them to school as we give out free fruit as well as hot or cold lunch meals every day.

Hopefully everything will settle and return to some kind of normality soon. Take care whanau and reach out if you need support.

Kia manuia,

Whaea Paeariki (Rongomai Principal)
