School Hats Missing

Please can you check that your child's school hat is clearly named.
Office staff are more than happy
to assist with 
re naming hats that are
no longer clear to read.

We have many students stating that hats have been misplaced during the day. If your child has taken someone else's hat home in error please pop it into the school office where it will be returned to the rightful owner.

Dear Parents and Caregivers

If you have arrived back in New Zealand from China in the last 2 weeks, or if you have traveled to an area of the world where the Coronavirus is now present and you feel that you may have been in contact with someone who has contracted the virus (family, friends or acquaintances overseas), we ask that your child does not come to school until you have been back in New Zealand for a period of 2 weeks (14 days). 

If everyone living in your household is symptom free, when the two week period is up, your child should then come to school as normal and is welcome to attend any out of hours school events. 

If this situation relates to you, please contact the office asap to discuss either by email or phone.


Kind regards

Christine Wilson
Freyberg Community School

There are things we can do every day to help our kids feel loved and safe.  

Things like:     
Giving lots of love and affection                  Teaching them new things
Giving plenty of praise                               Listening and talking to them
Giving your time and attention

If you are raising a child, one of the things you will need most is family, whanau and friends around to give you help and good advice.  Being a parent is something we all learn on the job, so don't be afraid to ask for help!
