Weber School Newsletter
2nd September 2022 - Week 6
Tena Koutou Katoa Weber Whanau,
It was lovely to see so many faces last Friday at the Pot Luck dinner, the students were super excited to stay behind on Friday for some afternoon tea and then onto a movie and some yummy treats.
A huge thank you to Davinia Leipst and Trudy Hales for cooking the meat, as well, organising the food on the night as well as baking the delicious afternoon tea for the students as well as the Seniors who helped with the set up of the hall.
Another big thank you to the many parents who came back on Saturday morning to clean up the hall.
I really appreciate the time out of your weekend.
This week has been a busy one with visitors and several trips offsite. On Monday we welcomed two visiting authors from the National Storytelling tour - Sandra Morris and Tom Moffat.
The Storyline tour aims to bring children writers, poets and storyteller with their readers and audiences, to bring books and reading, and to encourage literacy. Our tamariki were captivated with the storytelling, meeting real life authors and hearing about how to write books.
On Wednesday we went as a school to Dannevirke library as part of our 'Chill out and read programme' and then onto the Museum gallery. We were able to look at so many exciting artefacts and make links to our inquiry from last term.
Many thanks to all those parents who provided transport.
The Seniors from room 3 and some from room 2 also took part in the Hawke's Bay Barefoot Seven rugby at Hastings Boy High School and Akina Park - a great day of fun and sportsmanship. Once again many thanks to the parents who offered transport and their time at the event and Kathy Holyoake for organising it.
Have a lovely weekend.
