Really proud of these students who made it to Polyfest rehearsal today. They were the only students at school (again) because it was a teacher only day. Still lots to prepare before their dress rehearsal (this Thursday in assembly at 10:30) but they have been getting lots of guidance this weekend from their talented tutors. ... See MoreSee Less

Well done!

A big thank you to Christine Sangster for all her time, energy and enthusiasm she puts in for this event too 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Congratulations to our 6 SWIS students who competed in the online Chess Nationals on Saturday (You made it happen Heidi 😊). The team was placed in the top half of the tournament. We are proud of you all and it was also wonderful to see that Zahra was ranked 3rd in the girls’ division and Leo won the ‘best gainer’ title! On Sunday Luna competed in the Individuals’ Nationals and was placed 12th out of 19 and was recognised as the best girl in her division. ... See MoreSee Less

A reminder that Pink Shirt Day is on Friday. Don’t worry if your child hasn’t got a pink shirt because mufti and a touch of pink in the accessories could still make a statement. But, If they can get pinkerised, please do encourage them to do so. 😊.Poster designed by class rep Rosa 😎. ... See MoreSee Less

Tēnā koutou,

The school is buzzing about next Monday's Market Day!

We encourage you to come along! Please come and support our students and the hard work they have undertaken to get ready for Market Day. Stalls open at 3:30pm and will be closed by 6pm unless sold out prior...which normally happens!

You can buy SWIS francs that can then be used to purchase from the stalls. The students will not be accepting real money on the day.

You can buy these francs through the school Kindo App, by coming to the office and pre-purchasing them from our staff or by depositing money in the school bank account. (One franc = $1). Our bank details are 12 3141 0338498 00. Please put your child's name, room number and francs in the reference line. Pre-purchased francs will be handed to students on the day of the event

There will also be an opportunity to purchase francs on the day, from the office.

Thank you for supporting us!
