Friendly Reminder - School Donations

All families with school contributions outstanding were sent reminder letters in early September.  To those families who have sent money in already - we thank you.  The Board of Trustees have been able to keep the school contributions at the same amount for the past 20 years. This has been important to the Board as we want to maintain the high quality of programmes being offered at school without passing any additional cost onto parents/caregivers.  Should you have any questions about these letters please contact Juliette or Sharon in the school office.
Kia Ora Parents/ Caregivers ........from the Junior School

We are currently evaluating our Transition to School programme and your feedback is an important part of this process. If you have a child that has started school this year and could spare 5 minutes to answer our anonymous questionnaire we would greatly appreciate it!  Please click on the button below.

Thank you in advance for any support or suggestions!

Transition to School Survey




On Thursday 17th October letters were posted to in zone and out of zone applicants confirming an offer of placement for 2020.  Applications for out of zone students wishing to attend Freyberg for 2020 are now closed.

If you have handed in an enrolment form and have not yet received a letter please contact Juliette in the school office on (09) 8389664. 

Applicants -  both in zone and out of zone are required to confirm or deny acceptance of a place
by Friday 1st November.

We look forward to welcoming many new families to Freyberg in 2020.


Is your child leaving Freyberg?
Are you moving out of the area?

Please let us know!  If you are moving or your child will be enrolling at a new primary school in the New Year, please notify the office staff.  We are currently in the very early process of finalising classes for next year and this will enable us to have accurate numbers for classes in 2020.

Organisation for 2020

Due to the significant roll growth we are unable to accommodate parent requests for teachers/specific classes for 2020.  However, if you have information regarding your child's learning that may be valuable in placement we would encourage you to contact our senior management staff - Ms Maria Dopheide if your child is a Year 0 - 2, Ms Emma-lea Graaf if your child is a Year 3 - 4, or Mr Matt Allely if your child is a Year 5 - 6 student next year. 

Our senior management staff will try to assist as best as they can.

No Sunhat - Play in the Shade
                 - Term 4 2019 & Term 1 2020

From this week onwards any child not having a sunhat will be directed to a designated spot for non-hat wearers. 

Please support our Freyberg school policy and keep your child healthy by making sure that your child has a Freyberg compulsory sunhat that can be left at school to be used for outdoor activities.  Please ensure that this hat is clearly named for ease of return should it be misplaced during school time.

If you would like assistance with naming the hat please see the office staff who will be happy to accomodate this request with our super amazing white markers!!!

Our Sunsmart approved school hats are now available for purchase at $18 each from the school office.

Children's Artwork Calendars

A huge thank you from the Freyberg Fundraising Committee members to those families who have recently ordered these lovely calendars, cards, diaries etc  online.

Today was the last day for ordering with a close off time of 9.00 a.m. Feedback received to date from parents/caregivers was that the online order process was straight forward and relatively easy.  By way of an administrator logon we can see the huge numbers of orders placed  and we thank you all for your support in this fundraiser!  Orders will be processed and should be received at school in approx 10 days.
