Today is the last day of Term 3 2021. School holidays are from Saturday 2nd October - Sunday 17th October 2021. The Striving Achievers decided not to have a Room 12 Hui today. 

Fingers crossed Auckland will return to Alert Level 2 soon and that we will be back together face to face for Term 4 on Monday 18th October 2021.

Continue to stay safe and have fun during our Term 2 School holiday break.
