Ski Camp 2015

Wow what an amazing time at Turoa Skifield! We experienced stunning weather and the children embraced our school values and mastered skiing. Many thanks to the parents who accompanied us. They were exceptional.

Congratulations to senior students

A well organised cake stall with lots of contributions from senior students meant that $306 was raised by the children for the Totara Courtyard.

Thank you to parents and children who supported the success by purchasing goodies for morning tea.
