Announcement : 

NEW SCHOOL UNIFORMS SURVEY: Kia Ora e te whānau,  I am looking at changing our school uniforms with additional pieces. I would appreciate your input to gather thoughts around what our new uniform could look like and how adding pieces such as a P.E. uniform for our senior students could impact whānau. The reason behind the change is our off shore suppliers have increased their prices. I have sourced a local manufacturer to hold and supply stock for our uniforms. The process behind the change of uniforms is as follows:   Gather student voice   Gather Whānau voice   Gather Staff voice   Share findings with whānau, staff, students    Present responses to the School Board   Whānau, staff, students are notified of the outcome and possible changes timeline     Could you all please take a moment to check the new designs, vote and answer a couple of questions. Click on the link below to access the survey:  Waatea School uniform change survey Ngā mihi nui, Whaea ZaraWaatea School Principal
