Welcome New Children


 We would like to welcome Harvey, Ruby, Roxy, Benjamin and Zayed

to Anderson's Bay School.  It is wonderful to have you joining us. 



Paid Union Meeting

The New Zealand Educational Institute has called a paid union meeting for all teachers on Thursday 28th June, starting at 1:00 pm.  It is expected that all teachers from our school attend in order to discuss NZEI claims and negotiations.   Therefore, it is necessary for us to call on the support of our community and request that children be picked up from school at 12:30 pm.  If you are unable to pick your child up at that time please send a written note to school and supervision can be provided until 3:00 pm.  I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Rata Team Wall Hanging

Thanks to all our wonderful Rata Team artists for their colourful self-portraits painted during Term One. The Rata Team are very lucky to have Mrs Ross and Mrs Sell who then sewed our quilt together.  Thanks too to Mr Pope who installed it in the Rata stairwell.  The children enjoyed visiting the last quilt as they moved through the school, so we know our current Rata children will enjoy doing the same.

Anderson’s Bay School Ski Trip - Cardrona 2018 UPDATE

Hi all

This year's Andy Bay Family Ski Weekend at Cardrona will take place on the weekend of Fri – Sun 10th – 12th August. We've had a big increase in families wishing to take advantage of the trip this year, so we are currently full.

As families plans often change, if you are still interested I can put your group on a wait list. Please email if you'd like to do this, or if you require more details about the trip.

Many thanks, Laurence Potter
