Scholastic Book Club Term 3, 2019

Welcome to book club, there look to be some great titles and fabulous bargains!  Brochures will be coming home with your children over the next couple of days. Closing date for orders: Friday 2 August.  Please make sure you have ordered on line by this date or handed a completed for and payment in to the School office. Please note we will be unable to process late orders Orders can be placed either by yourselves directly on line, using the LOOP system – Linked Online Ordering and Payment for parents – or if you prefer orders plus payment can be sent to School and dropped at the Library or Office.  Any cheques should be made payable to Scholastic New Zealand. If you do wish to order directly please visit and follow the instructions, we will NOT need the paper order form, your order will be delivered to school with the remainder of our order and be sent home via the children. As ever, if you ever want to order a “surprise” book for a special occasion put your name and phone number clearly on the order form and we will phone you for collection once they are received!  Or if ordering orders can be identified as GIFT while ordering online. At St Martins we send one catalogue home per term, the first of two which Scholastic produce.  If you wish to order from the second catalogue in a term you will need to do this online. Any questions I’m happy to answer, or find the answer for you. Thanks for your support, every book ordered raises dollars for School Library stock

Welcome Naumai

St Martins Primary School delivers high quality, child-centred education in a friendly and inviting learning environment. We aim to ‘Inspire a Passion For Learning’ through instilling our School’s Values and Beliefs: Respect, Caring, Responsibility, Personal Best, and Learning. It is our goal to develop confident, connected actively involved, life long learners.

We believe that a strong and open partnership between school, family and the wider community is essential if we are to empower our students to create their own pathways to success. We acknowledge the unique individuals that our children are, their diverse abilities, their distinct personalities, their interests and their cultures, and we aim to provide exciting and engaging learning programmes that will meet their needs today, and prepare them for tomorrow.

We are fortunate to be served by a committed Board of Trustees, supported by an energetic and creative S’MART Community. We encourage our parent community to be involved in our school in whatever ways they can, and because they play an important role in developing the strategic direction of our school, and as this is a community school.

Enjoy your visit to our website, and if you would like to know more about St Martins School please feel free to make an appointment to meet with me.

Kind regards

Bernadette May
Acting Principal
