Parent Info

Welcome back to 2023, the year has started well and the children have settled very quickly back into school mode.

We welcome all our new Whānau to our Whanganui East School Community.

It has been great that we are able to offer all our children their stationery at no cost, being part of the School Donations Scheme means that we will not be asking parents for the cost of curriculum-related expenses.

Swimming has started well and this year our focus is on Water Safety skills.  Swimming is part of the Curriculum and all children are expected to swim Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.  Please ensure uniforms and towels are named to avoid confusion.
