Haere ra Whaea Jamie

On a warm summer's day in February 2012 Jamie walked into Linton Camp School looking for work.  Jamie had recently graduated from a teacher training programme in Whakatane and had shifted with her partner and two small children into a Defence house in Bells Road.  That visit was the start of a great story that ends tomorrow with Jamie leaving the staff. Over the time Jamie has been a teacher at Linton Camp School she has taught pretty much everywhere except perhaps Year Seven and Eight.  Her first classes were Year Five and Six students before moving to take on Year Two and Three students.  Her latest teaching assignment has been in the bilingual class, teaching students in Years One to Thre

International Cuisine week

This week we have been celebrating our differences by trying many different types of food during our International Cuisine week. Our students have been going to other classes, where the teachers have shared how to make Japanese sushi, Fijian curry & roti, Mexican bean nachos, Italian pizza, French chocolate mousse, Hawaiian kebabs and Vietnamese rice paper rolls. Trying new foods was a challenge for a lot of children. Some was successful others weren’t so much. The year 6 boys just weren’t fans of cold ‘spring rolls’. Mr Tongs curry was a hit for many children who just ‘don’t like curry’ but ones he had convinced them to try a little were trying to get thirds. As well as the different food o

Brain Break

Brain Break Each day at around 10.00am all classes have what we call Brain Break. The children get a few brief minutes to have something to eat and/or drink. Brain Break food must only be fruit or vegetables (e.g. carrot sticks). Students can also have milk, which is supplied & is free. Can you please make sure your children have a piece of fruit or veggies to eat at Brain Break. Some of our younger students may need their fruit cut up (at home) so that it is easier for them to consume in the few minutes they have. Thanks for your help with this.


We have had the most wonderful 4 days at Linton Camp School! We would happily stay for the rest of the year - your kindness, energy, enthusiasm and great ideas have made each day something to treasure and has resulted in many thoughtful discussions both in and out of the mobile classroom. These amazing young people have so much potential - it really is heartwarming to see and to be around. We would love you to go to our Life Ed Manawatu Facebook page and find the Linton Camp School post - please leave a comment, and if you like us: Fantastic! Thank you so much again for having us at your awesome school - take care and have a brilliant rest of the year! Love from Tim and Harold!

Thank you for registering your child to play sports for Linton Camp School next term.

Warning about TikTok

Kia ora This morning we have been alerted to a video that is circulating on social media platforms, in particular, TikTok. The video contains very concerning content. We are aware that some of our students use TikTok outside of school hours. Students, while they are at school do not access TikTok, however, we have no control when they are walking to and from school or are in their homes. Today's situation is a timely reminder that parents must remain vigilant of their child's social media use. We are often told by students that they play games such as Fortnight or use social apps such as Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok. All of these games and services have age restrictions that should mean th
