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.

Ishaan Pysaka in Room 22 has shared some fantastic news! 

Ishaan plays in the Thunderbolts (under 9) team for Oratia Cricket Club.  Ishaan was presented with the Player of the Day trophy last weekend.  He was awarded this trophy for taking 3 wickets in one over and helping his team win the game by 3 runs in a close match against ERDCC Roskill Strikers at Keith Hay Park. 

Congratulations Ishaan - your Mum and Dad must be very proud of your sporting achievement - as of course are we!
Parent Advice
           - Give your child plenty of praise!

Your child wants to please you.  If you praise them when they do well at something or are trying hard, it will make them want to do it again.  Praising your child for being good will make them want to be good, and it will help them feel good about themselves.
Children who feel good about themselves tend to:
  • learn more easily and make more effort to achieve
  • get into less trouble
  • get on well with others
  • make friends more easily
  • feel happier and more secure.

Freyberg Summertime School Disco
Friday 29th November 
in our School Hall 
 6 - 8 p.m.

Student tickets @$4 per ticket if purchased from the school office or $5 per ticket if purchased at the door on the night - Freyberg Students Only                                         
Family tickets @$10 are available for families with 3 or more children (siblings only).  These can only be purchased from the school office prior to the Disco - not at the door on the night.

Chips / drinks / lollies will be available for purchase!
  Tickets will be available from Monday 25th November from the school office. 

We look forward to a great night for all!

As new polar fleece jacket &  3 x school hats clearly named Noah Kini.  If your child has taken these home in error kindly return them to the school office where they will be returned to the rightful owner.

At the end of each term and especially after school events (where students do not wear their school uniform) we always have a mountain of unnamed clothing (uniform and mufti), drink bottles, lunchboxes and shoes in our lost property box.  Returning these items is easier if they are adequately named. In addition to the above we currently have some 6 school hats and 4 polar fleece jackets - unfortunately not named - waiting to be returned to their rightful owner.  

Please note that all lost property is held in the school office and will be put out on the junior syndicate courts by the sickbay weekly for all to view and hopefully claim :)

We also have an engraved silver bangle that has been located in a school bag (not used since 2018) from a student who was in Room 22 in 2018. If you can identify the engraving - we would love to return this no doubt treasured item to the rightful owner.


You can now pay for your Scholastic Book Club orders online or the usual way by dropping them to the office  complete with payment.  Please note that the last day for all orders is Friday 22nd November. 
The school benefits from all purchases and we wish to thank you again for all your support!
