Recent Incidents at school

Wed Mar 31 05:02pm

Smales Farm
We have had a few queries about TNIS Learners walking and riding through Smales Farm before and after school.  Due to some incidences mainly involving older secondary students, Smales Farm has asked us to discourage our learners from cutting through on weekdays.  However, learners who are catching a bus or meeting a parent at Smales Farm may cut through.


Playground Behaviour
Yesterday, we had a playground fighting incident.  The learners involved have been identified and strong consequences have been put in place in accordance with our school guidelines.  Their parents have been contacted and fully support our expectations and subsequent consequences.  We are working with the learners involved to ensure that our school is a safe environment. We encourage learners to let their parents and teacher know about any instances of unacceptable behaviour so that we can take immediate action.


Please encourage your children to stand up for others and report anything they are concerned about immediately.  All reports of unacceptable behaviour are treated confidentially and are fully investigated.


Until the end of the term, there will be extra playground supervision in place.


Learners can also email concerns to Stopbully@tnis.school.nz

A small amount of staff will be at school each day to supervise children of essential workers between 8:45am and 3pm each school day. Please fill out this survey by 9.30pm this evening if you need your child to be included in this supervision.



As educators, our foremost priority is our learners’ wellbeing. Whilst we encourage learners to complete the work given to them, we understand that everyone’s bubble is different and it may be difficult to do so. Please stay in contact with your child’s teacher if you have any concerns.
