Principal's Message
Saane Faaofo-Oldehaver


Talofa lava to our amazing Weymouth families and community.

On behalf of myself and my children Tayla and Marcel we just wanted to say a huge thank you for the love and support that has been given to Seti Faaofo, my amazing husband. Over the last week we have been privileged to see the love shown to us and also to Seti and the legacy he has left us all. 
The thoughts and prayers and stories shared as we celebrated his life have been absolutely beautiful and my family and I will treasure them forever. 
I am also thankful you allowed so many of our staff to attend the funeral - thank you, thank you, thank you. 
My husband loved our school and I am happy he has done lots of work around our school so we will always feel his presence there. 
Have a fabulous term and I will be back soon. 
Faafetai tele lava

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:  Sharing of sad news

Friday 22 July 2022

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Whaea Saane's husband, Seti Faaofo, on Tuesday 19 July, after a short illness.

Representatives from our Board of Trustees and Staff visited Whaea Saane and her family on Thursday to pay our respects on behalf of Weymouth Primary School.

The funeral will be held on Tuesday 26 July and we would like as many of our staff to attend as possible in support of Whaea Saane.  In order for this to happen, we are asking for families to keep their children home on Tuesday if possible.  Teachers will be making contact with their families to get an indication of how many students we will need to cater to on this day.  The school will remain open on Tuesday 26 July with the number of staff to cater for students who still need to attend.  Before and After School Care will also still operate for enrolled students attending that day.

We know you will all be wanting to share your condolences and aroha to Whaea Saane.  A book of remembrance will be set up in the office area from Wednesday 27th for whānau to write their loving messages.  Once we know when Whaea Saane is ready to return, we will invite our school community to welcome her back.

We thank you all for your support during this time.

Talofa lava to our amazing Weymouth families.

We are excited to welcome everyone back on Monday 2nd of May @ 9am. Our powhiri is at 10am and all are welcome to join us, under the sunshade.

This term there will be no double parking - we will trial a drop-off and pick-up bay. If it is full when you arrive, please drive around the block and come back again, or park legally in one of the parking spaces on Evans Road.

There will be wardens out and about and we will also take photos of families who do not park correctly. 


We are at Orange Traffic Light so some of the changes are as follows:

Mask wearing is optional. If children wish to wear a mask they will be supplied with one.

Physical distancing is not required.

Large activities will go ahead.

Parents are allowed on site. Please come to the office and sign in first.

Health and Safety protocols will still be in place e.g. sanitizer in all classes, soap and warm water in toilets, and disinfectant in all toilets.

3pm is our finish time for all students. Parents are welcome to come on-site and wait outside or pop inside classes to collect your child at the end of the day.

Road patrol will be in operation morning and afternoon. Please ensure if your child is on duty they are at school and on time for their duty.

The Leadership team will still be on gate duty - but at both gates - Evans Road front gate and Estuary Road side gate.

Walk to School Wednesday will start in Week 1. 

 Lunches will start on day one. 

Please take some time to go over the new settings. We are looking forward to a fun-filled term of learning. Watch this space for Parent Workshops & Learning Conversations dates.

Today we acknowledged our Student Leaders with our first, and last assembly for Term 1 2022.  Thank you to our whānau that attended to support.  Unfortunately, we had technical difficulties with playing Whaea Saane's farewell message for the term, who was unable to join us.  Please find Whaea Saane's message below.   You will find our final newsletter for the term on our website.  Have a safe and happy term break.  See you Monday 2 May.

Kia ora e te whānau, we have our last day of term one tomorrow!  Thank you all for your support this term.  Our final assembly will be at 1pm tomorrow, and we will be presenting some of our leadership badges at this assembly.  School will finish at 2pm.  Term 2 starts at 9am on Monday 2nd May.  Be safe.


We've had to learn to do things differently this second half of the year, and Prizegiving was one!   Thank you to our whānau who attended virtually, and to Whaea Danielle for hosting us.  Please find a recording of our Prizegiving for the rest of our whānau and community to enjoy.

We're all in this together!
