Term 1, 2018 classes start on 7th February

New year, new classes, new timetable and new challenges!!! We are happy to announce the addition of a Preschool class (3 & 4 yrs) to our timetable. In this class the parents/caregivers will participate in some activites – having fun with their child as they go on imaginative journeys!

Another bonus is that parents who also have a 5 or 6 year old can engage in the Preschool class, while their older child is busy in the Primary class (which runs at the same time in the next room).

For any kids who like their tutors’ Brickworks t-shirt – now you can order your own! Just check the box as you enrol on Enrolmy.

Thanks for your support and for being part of the Brickworks Family! Happy New Year!

We are really excited to announce that we have received some funding from the Creative Communities Scheme to put together an end of term show with the children. The name of the show is “Tat’s Incredible!“.

We’ll devise short plays inspired by local tales of Te Atatu Peninsula’s history that tell of its people’s resilience, community spirit, courage, ingenuity, and humour.

We’ll have two extra rehearsals (free of charge) on Sat 18th and Sat 25th Nov.

Performing day December 2nd at the Chapel
