Pool Re-opened

Fri Feb 03 10:03am

Attention Pool Key Holders:

The pool has re-opened today for your use.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed for no more ‘weather events’ which may lead to the pool needing to be closed again.

Judith Howe

School Pool

Tue Jan 31 03:48pm

If you hold a pool key please be advised that due to the weather and flooding, and contaminated water flowing into the pool, it is currently chained and closed.

We will see how the weather goes, and when it is settled again, and the pool cleaned, we will send you another School App message.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.


Mon Jan 30 05:52pm

To those families who have children booked into OSCAR this week. OSCAR will be on for those of you who need it. 

Fridays Deluge

Mon Jan 30 03:00pm

Dear Gladstone whanau

Just checking in after the weather of Friday and Saturday morning. We hope you are all well and dry but if there is anything you need or anyway we can help here at school please let us know. The best contact is email using my email 


Take care and be safe

Swimming pool behaviour

Wed Jan 04 01:48pm

If your family won a pool key in the ballot, please read on. 

Things have been slipping I am sorry to report. Please be mindful yourselves and speak up to others where necessary, regarding the rules and in particular the following:

1. Take all your belongings home. We don’t want your lost property. Check the changing rooms. There is currently quite a bit left there. It will be dumped. Take it away!

2. We don’t want your rubbish either. Be responsible for it. We are not providing a service with rubbish bins. 

3.  As explained before, no jumping into the pool etc for several reasons. The water that is splashed out lowers the water level and may compromise our pumps. Our pool does not have a recycling water system. Keep the water in the pool please or it could be closed. 

4.  Are your children responsible, careful, considerate?  That is your job to supervise.  

Sorry to growl but a number of people are letting us down. 

Judith Howe
Executive Officer

Class of 2022 Graduation

Fri Dec 16 06:33pm

The Year 6 cohort had a wonderful graduation celebration this afternoon. They enjoyed time in the pool, on the bouncy castles and obstacle course, and having water gun battles on the field. There was a nail salon and tattoo parlour as well.

This was topped off with a burger prepared by our resident gourmet chef, Mr Burrowes, and a slice of the most amazing cake made by Ms Ali.

A huge thank you to the parents who volunteered to help, and an extra special thank you to Baker’s Delight in Pt Chev for donating 200 burger buns. Such a kind and generous gesture that is greatly appreciated.

Finally, a shout out to Victoria who was indispensable in the organisation of the event.

Mr Faville and the Year 6 team.
