Visit from His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan

We had a very special guest come to visit Amesbury School: His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan on the 3rd of May 2018. Please watch our Amesbury TV video here to see highlights of the visit. A special thank you to Nethmi who had the opportunity to shadow our visitor and captured some excellent moments.

Gumboots, slippers and spare clothing

As we kick in to the Autumn and Winter seasons, please feel free to send gumboots and slippers to school. We also encourage you to put a plastic bag with spare clothing in the bottom of your child's bag (especially for those who's children love to play outside at lunch!) We have a very limited supply of black bottoms, so we encourage you to pack spares.

Resource Request in Koru hub

We are in desperate need of more newspapers! Please send in any spares you have at home.  

Carpark safety

With the winter season upon us, and more rainy afternoon pick ups, please read our article here in order to keep our children safe in the carpark.  If you have caregivers collecting your children, please show them this article also.

Movin' March Summary

Amesbury won a special recognition award for sending in the most passports of any school that participated! Our prize is a Black Caps signed cricket bat, hurrah! Amesbury School, Karori West Normal School and Totara Park School had the highest participation rates in the region.

“Congratulations to the winners and all of the schools which took part,” says Greater Wellington school travel coordinator Kirsty Barr. “It’s been a really successful year, with a 30 per cent increase in the number of schools getting involved. Momentum is obviously building behind the programme and we look forward to even more involvement in 2019.”

It’s estimated that nearly 60,000 kms of walking or wheeling journeys took place during the month, an increase of 26 per cent on last year.
