Announcement : 

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Whānau,   The Ministry of Education (MoE) is proposing the establishment of a new Year 1-8 co-educational primary school in Massey Redhills, Auckland.   A preferred site for the proposed Massey Redhills Primary School has been identified within the live zoned Redhills precinct area west of Fred Taylor Drive.  To cater for school aged population growth in the short term, the proposed new school will be temporarily located at 13 – 15 Trig Road, Whenuapai.  The proposed school would be known as Massey Redhills Primary School during its establishment.  The foundation learners and staff of the school would start at the Trig Road site and move to the permanent school site in Massey Redhills when it is built and ready for occupation.     As part of the proposal, the MoE is required to consult with the Board of any state school whose roll might be affected if the school was established.   If you have any feedback on this proposal, please email me at pa@whenuapai.school.nz by Friday, 15 October 2021. Your responses will be collated and form part of our feedback provided to the MoE (please note – the deadline stated in the attached letter has now been extended).   Subject to the Minister establishing the proposed new school, the MoE are also seeking nominations for the Establishment Board of the new school. Information about the role of the Establishment Board, a nomination form and the Eligibility Attestation form are attached for anyone who is interested.    Massey – Redhills – Letter consult.docx EBOT Massey – Redhills – Info pack candidates EBOTs.docx   Ngā mihi nui,   Jo Wright Principal’s PA

Facilities

Class Rooms
The school opened with just three classrooms and has grown to over twenty fully equipped rooms.

Library
The Whenuapai School library is situated behind the astro turf court and is open daily from 8.30am to 3.00pm Monday to Friday.
Our library is well stocked and inviting, and we are fortunate enough to be able to keep adding fabulous new books regularly throughout each year.

Each class is scheduled to visit the library once each week and books are loaned for one week periods, however, books may be renewed. After a book has been overdue for one month, we seek assistance from parents/caregivers to help locate the book or to purchase a replacement.

The library always has children’s artworks on show and parents are more than welcome to visit and admire them.

Our annual Scholastic Book Fairs are always popular, and generate lots of income from sales to enable us to purchase more library books and school resources. Our library is always themed for book fairs and looks stunning with the aid of our talented children’s art.
The library manager is Claire Brain, please do pop in,  or e-mail library@whenuapai.school.nz if you have any queries or concerns.

Courts
The school has two large marked hard surface areas which serve as free play areas, ball courts and meeting grounds. The largest contains a full sized netball court, the other a basket court with nets.

Hall
The hall is an important part of our school, from school discos to assemblies, to graduation and gymnastics, school productions to dancing. The hall can be hired for private use outside of school hours: please enquire at the school office for information and hire conditions.

Play Structures
Whenuapai School offers a wealth of playground opportunities. Two purpose built play grounds, one for the junior school and another for the seniors. A very popular morning tea and lunchtime activity, both playgrounds have a variety of fun and challenging tasks.
