Te Rapa Primary

Te Rapa Primary School

Room 10

At the end of this term, we have our end of year, Big Day Out. This year our syndicate will visit Te Awamutu Pools for the day. Children have the opportunity to go on the hydroslide and inflatables. The teachers and parents love joining in with the water play as well.

Our Year 4 students can also look forward to a sleepover at school the night before. The pool is open as well as the water slide which is always a hit. We have lots of games in and out of the pool.

Full of H.E.A.R.T.

Our school use the acronym Te Rapa H.E.A.R.T. This is something we aspire to use in class, the playground and any trips out and about. We use Class Dojo and Friday Fun to reward children for using lots of H.E.A.R.T.
This stands for:
H = Honesty
E= Excellence
A = Aroha
R = Respect
T = Teamwork
