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

Whenuapai Houses

As a tribute to our wonderful neighbours on the Air Force Base and the close association our school has with the Air Base, our four house names are: Hercules, Boeing, Orion and Seasprite.

On enrolment, students are allocated to a ‘House’ and will remain in that house for the duration of their time at Whenuapai School. Siblings are placed in the same house together and for our Military families, we do our very best to put their children in the house that is most closely associated with their parent’s role on the Base.

Various school activities and sporting events over the year will contribute to a point system and accumulate to an overall House winner at the end of each year. When these activities and sporting events are held, students will be invited to wear their house colour to school.

House colours are as follows:

Hercules

 

Boeing

 

Orion

 

Seasprite
