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!

It is a Arts and Social Science inquiry and we can't wait to see what our students design in terms of answering this question.

Student Leaders 2015
I am proud to announce the following students as Sylvia Park School leaders for 2015.
Head Girl - Milania Cairns
Head Boy - Samuel Fanguna
Deputy Head Girl - Annaleigh Taufa
Deputy Head Boy - Isaiah Smith
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 email@example.com
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.
