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.

Earlier this month we celebrated Road Safety week. We have a huge number of students who walk to school on a regular basis and it's great to see them wearing the right protective gear while they are using their scooters and bikes.  Arriving as always with a "smile " on their face eager and keen to be at school learning and catching up with their buddies!
Swimming Programme for 
Team 3 (Rooms 13, 14, 15, 16 & 22)   
&    Team 4 (Rooms 17, 18, 19, 20 & 21) 

The above classes begin their lessons on Monday 30th November.  There will be 10 lessons in this swimming programme - with the last lesson taking place on Friday 11th December.

As a result of Freyberg School opting into the government donation scheme for 2020 there will be NO COST for your child to attend these lessons. We hope to see every child take advantage of these lessons providing essential water safety skills!
Please can all parents/caregivers ensure that all school uniform items and togs and towels are clearly named.  This will enable a speedy resolution for children and staff alike when items are misplaced.  

Times that classes are scheduled to swim are now available from the school office/class teachers.
Our Freyberg students are having a blast
attending their senior camp at Port Waikato.

The latest Scholastic Book Catalogue was  sent home with all students last week.  Please note that orders can be made by ONLINE ORDERING only. 

This may be a good opportunity for some of our parents/caregivers to do some early birthday / Christmas shopping.....there certainly  are some beautiful books available!

Please note that the last day for ordering books is Wednesday 2nd December.

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), hats, drink bottles, lunchboxes and shoes  turn up in the office looking to be reunited with their rightful owner.  Returning these items is easier if they are adequately named. 

In addition to these we appear to have an ever increasing collection of toys and treasures being brought to school.  As outlined in our school prospectus we do not encourage this practice. It creates a large amount of stress to students when toys and treasures have gone missing and we appreciate co-operation in this matter.

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 :)
Last day for returning library books
is Friday 27th November and Monday 30th November :)

Children's Artwork Calendars 

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

Last Sunday was the last day for ordering  (although parent enquiries led us to add an extension of 48 hours).  Ordering has now closed and to ensure we have items prior to the end of the year we are unable to accept any further late orders.  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 for all of your support in this fundraiser.

Orders will be processed  by KIDS ' ARTWORKS and forwarded to our  students as soon as they are received here at school.

We are looking for support!

We will shortly be renewing the advertising section of our emailed newsletters. The newsletters are used throughout the year to keep our families and school community informed regarding school activities.

Should you, or anyone you know, like to place an advertisement on the school’s newsletter please contact Craig Neeve of Newsletters Unlimited, ph (09) 817 3867, or email

This is a great way to keep your business in front of the local community and also help our school.
