Term 3 Week 8
Kia ora, Talofa, Malo, Bula, Hola, Ciao, Kamusta po. from Sarah Morris Principal
Our thoughts continue to be with Jenny and John Cooklsey. Jenny has been taking care of her husband this term as he was diagnosed with a brain tumour while they were holidaying in Melbourne. He is still receiving excellent care in Australia. Jenny has requested leave until the end of term 4 which has been granted by our very supportive Frankley School Board of Trustees. Jess Uru has agreed to stay on until the end of the school year. We are very lucky to have her for another term, and I know our learners and staff are appreciating her calm, kind manner, sense of humour and enthusiasm for learning.
Well done to to the Trinders. Anna and her whānau are very excited about the early arrival of their pēpī (baby) last Friday.
At the moment I am working through the community consultation feedback in regards to our Frankley School Vision realignment. I will share the information in the coming weeks. So far there is a very strong message of being community minded: caring for people and the environment, and for being kind, honest and empathetic.

Message from TDHB regarding Measles
Taranaki has had several cases of people with measles. We don’t have an outbreak at the moment but more cases are likely because of the large outbreak in Auckland.
Now is a very good time to make sure everyone in your whanau has protection against measles. Children should be vaccinated on time at 15 months and four years of age.
If you don’t think you are immune to measles you need to make an appointment with your GP clinic for an MMR vaccination.
Please be patient if you can’t be vaccinated straight away. It is not possible to vaccinate everyone at once.
The risk of catching measles in Taranaki is still low.
Taranaki DHB has a new measles FAQs page which aims to answer questions you might have about measles. Click the link below to view the FAQs, which can also be reached via the Taranaki DHB website home page.
