Student Enrolments for 2021

On Friday 16th October letters were posted to in zone and out of zone applicants confirming an offer of placement for 2021.  Applications for out of  zone students wishing to attend Freyberg for 2021 are now closed.

If you have handed in an enrolment form and do not receive a letter by the end of the week please feel free to contact Juliette in the school office on (09) 8389664.

Remember to confirm your child's attendance for 2021 with Juliette in the school office by email/or in person before Friday 30th October..

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 2021.

Organisation for 2021

Due to significant roll growth we are unable to accommodate parent requests for teachers/specific classes for 2021.  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.
At last our students are enjoying a sense of normality! 

Recently our senior students enjoyed participating at the Te Atatu Cluster Ki O Rahi tournament, Team  2 visited MOTAT, Team 3 students  enjoyed a visit from the "Eat Adlib" food truck, Team 1 are heading of to visit the Stardome Observatory on the 9th November and our senior playground upgrade was completed last week and is now being enjoyed by all. 

Thank you to everyone who organises and supports these events for our Freyberg students.  Without you these incredible experiences would not take place.
You are truly amazing!

No Sunhat - Play in the Shade

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.
