In year 3 students say goodbye to the juniors and make the exciting transition into Bayfield middle school. They become kaitiaki of the Bayfield minibeast play area. This is a real growth year for children with a focus on self-management, building resilience, and being reflective learners.

Trips and Events

We are planning several trips and events throughout the year to promote the learning themes of the team. Photo's and artefacts will be recorded here as the year progresses

In 2022 we had a wonderful day at Long Bay Regional Park, exploring the rocky shore and beach. It was a great fact finding for our Tikapa Moana, Hauraki Gulf Inquiry. Check out a selection of photos from the trip.
