Tēnā Koutou, Talofa Lava, Malo e Lelei, Namaste, Ni sa bula, Noaia’e mauri, Fakalofa lahi atu, Kia Orana, Ni Hao, An Nyung Ha Sai Yo, Nay Ho, Hej, Hallo, Sawat Dee, Cześć, Goeie Dag, សួស្តី, Здравствуйте, hola. Greetings to our school families.
Well, it’s been a busy few weeks here at school – we have had a significant amount of both staff and student absence. I would really like to take a moment to really thank all the SBS Crew for the way they have all helped out wherever, whenever, to keep the school open. More than anything, we want to keep a sense of normality for our kids, and being at school, with their mates is a huge part of that. Thank you, to the many parents who have offered help also. It certainly takes a village in times like this!
On the positive side, we are underway with plans as life “frees up” with a move to “Orange” hopefully in the near future, and as this current wave passes. Year 6 Camp Tongariro is all booked and ready to go, and we are looking forward to having parents back on site for Assemblies, Parent Interviews (re-scheduled to early Term 2) and events such as the Mini Gala. I am particularly excited to see a number of sports teams getting up and running (some information below).
Take care out there! Ngā mihi nui,
Welcome to our new students – we hope you enjoy your time at our school!

SBS Hockey All Players – Meet Up Tuesday 5 April
ALL PLAYERS can come down to the turf for a fun pre-season meet up/muster/practice!
Please note that registration closes TODAY so visit https://mahujuniorhockey.co.
Phone 021 794835 email@example.com to Neil McGarvey Queries
Schedule: Hockey runs through term 2 and most of term 3 (with a break over the holidays). It’s played at the Warkworth Showgrounds hockey turf on Saturday mornings. Funsticks (Year 0-1) first at 8.00, Juniors (Year 2-4) 8.30, Seniors (Year 5-6) 9.00 and depending on the draw, the last game is finished by about 11.15.
Practices will be on Tuesdays (seniors) and Wednesdays (juniors) after school – SBS school netball courts (juniors) but possibly the turf for seniors.
Costs: Club fees will be approximately $95 for the whole season – most of that goes on turf hire. We will provide a shirt and socks. Each player will need their own: black shorts/skorts, mouthguard, shinpads, and hockey stick. (Just Hockey NZ or The Warehouse are good places to start)
Parents: The whole hockey competition depends on parents to help out, especially when we’re Duty Club for a few Saturdays each season. You will be expected to lend a hand setting up or packing away if your team is playing first or last. Also we’re looking for parents to manage and coach teams so if you’d like to help out please let me know. No hockey experience necessary.
Most importantly, please remember junior hockey is all about enjoyment for the kids, and umpires are volunteers – please keep comments from the sideline positive and be kind to each other.
Meet Up/Muster Day: Tuesday 5th April 3.45 – 4.45 pm
Warkworth Showgrounds Hockey Turf
