Central Normal School is a vibrant learning environment where we encourage whanau to share all learning with their tamariki. There are regular events that enable students to demonstrate their increasing understanding across all curriculum areas.
Thank you and Merry Christmas
I have now been at Central for three terms and I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every day. We have a fantastic team of children and staff here and I am very proud to be the Principal/Tumuaki of Central Normal/Te Kura Tuatahi o Papaioea.
Since Term 2, the highlights for me have been;
•The respect and happiness of our children saying, “Kia Ora Matua” every day
•The Ngā Pou performance at The Regent theatre
•Our CNS Production, titled: ’Empowered’
•Our successful CNS whanau consultation and sausage sizzle
•Watching our sports teams at netball and basketball
•The end of year Show Case at The Regent
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and contributions to our school through the year. Along with the rest of the staff, we are very excited about 2019 and what we have planned for our tamariki. On behalf of all the staff, we wish you and your children a very Merry Christmas and a safe and relaxing break.
