Four generations at Portobello School

Last week we welcomed Emma North to our school community.
When Emma joined our school she followed in the footsteps of her mother, grandmother and great grandmother who were also pupils at Portobello School.
Read the great article published about Emma and her family.

Spelling Bee

We have had our very first Portobello School Spelling Bee.  Our students showed amazing spelling skills as our fabulous finalists competed for 
‘The Portobello School Trophy for Outrageously Audacious Spelling’.
The trophy was hotly contested on the day!

The 2017 winner was: Tuki Potiki.   Congratulations Tuki and our congratulations to all finalists.














7, 8...9 Big Day Out

We had another great day together this term.  This one had a local flavour -  Larnach Castle in the morning and Harbour Cone in the afternoon.  They offered information about the castle, Dunedin & local history, career opportunities, photography and fun.

Senior Student Plans

Our senior students are tidying and changing their Common Room.  Our 7,8...9 group has a plan for something new. There is a connection to their 2017 Wellington Camp.  I wonder what it is!?
