Check out our anti-bullying video! Our students worked with the fabulous DJ Taotua to compose and perform a song to promote anti-bullying. It's a top ten number for sure! We're trying to get as many hits on YouTube to win 'best video' award! A huge thank you to DJ Taotua, Ministry of Social Development and AHA music mentoring!

Eastern Zone Netball was a great success on Tuesday. The two girls teams had some tough competition playing against many other schools. The boys did a great job too coming first in their pool and third overall. The Eastern Zone league competition has been postponed again due to weather. Hopefully this goes ahead next week. The Active Sports programme for the seniors and juniors is great. Seniors have Run, jump, throw and juniors have Get, set, go. It's all action!

The outcome of the referendum question, 'Should we have a student council?' was unequivocal. No less that 87% voted yes! We will have a student council in 2015.
We have just completed our first year of HIPPY and are thrilled to see that those children have now enrolled at school. These children are significantly well prepared for school. We encourage our parents to keep the programme up at home!
Parents who want their children enrolled in HIPPY can contact the school or Ana Manu on 021 163 773 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
A Travelwise reminder to parents
We continue to encourage all parents to park up by the alleyway between Bean and Keate Place. This will help reduce traffic on Longford Street and help make it safe for our students. Check out our Travelwise page for more info.
Here at SPS we have some wonderful blogs written by our teachers. They have great photos and a heap of info on what is happening at SPS.
