Our senior students are role models around the school we trust that they will make the right choices regarding behaviour and reflect the values of the Ashgrove Stars (Service, Trust, Attitude, Respect and Responsibility).  We hope they will accept the challenges for Star tasks to earn badges as set out in their Star Booklet.


All classes go to Technology on Mondays.  Turepo 1 and 2 attend Rangiora Borough 9.00 - 11.30am.  They are then bused back to Ashgrove.  Turepo 4 and 5 attend Technology from 12.30 - 3.00pm.  Their bus leaves Ashgrove at 12.10pm

Turepo 3 is split between all four classes to ensure even numbers in Tech classes, so half the class go to Rangiora Borough School in the morning with Turepo 1 and 2, and the other half go in the afternoon with Turepo 4 and 5.  Turepo 3 joins these classes for all day.


Remember to keep an eye on the fortnightly bulletin.  It will keep you up to date with what is going on.

It is important to remind students of the uniform requirements for Ashgrove School.  In particular, make up, skate shoes and jewellery are an ongoing issue.

Finally, we are looking forward to a productive and exciting year that has a strong focus on building secure relationships and developing students self-awareness and self-confidence.

Thank you from the Turepo Learning Team
