An especially warm welcome to all new families to Linton Camp School and indeed to all families. It was great to see all the children and hear about the ‘adventures’ they got up to over the Christmas break.
We started school with 130 on the roll, which is our second largest opening day roll for many, many years.
We welcome two new staff members. Mary Macdonald is teaching in Room Two. Mary is an experienced teacher and joins us from Ohakune School. Damon Mudgway is a new Teacher Aide and is working mainly in Room Six.

Finally, learning at school is a partnership. We value the knowledge you have about your children. Please know that your child’s teacher is committed to working with you to ensure your children make the most of their time at school.
You are encouraged to contact teachers to chat about how things are going at any time.
