"Fun Run" - Monday

This Monday (10 June) is our inaugural "fun run" - but not as you know fun runs. Year 4-6 students came up with ideas and a number of these were incorporated into the event.

Tamariki are encouraged to wear their brightest fancy dress in the races. They should wear school uniform to school and change into fancy dress at lunchtime.

School Photos: This Week

The Inspire Photography Team are excited to be back at Amesbury School this year! We will be photographing your children and their classes this week - on Tuesday 11 and Thursday 13 June.

As part of Amesbury School’s fundraising for the year, Inspire Photography will donate 10% of all sales made during the first two weeks of ordering directly to Amesbury School.

What we offer on the day :

  • Group photos of each class
  • Individual portraits and siblings photos
  • A totally relaxed and unique style of photography
  • Friendly and easy-going photographers
  • Fun, games and general silliness to get even the shyest children smiling

About 2-3 weeks after your photo days, our online galleries will be ready to go. You will receive login details from the school office.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in contact with the Team at Inspire, or ring 04 384 8009.
