Welcome to David Street School
Welcome to new students Darius and Cooper who joined us at David Street School.
Nau mai, haere mai ki te Kura o Rawiri.
Thank you everyone for your understanding and patience in what has been a bit of a disruptive and uncertain week for everyone. We hope you and your extended families have not been impacted too badly during cyclone Gabrielle. It was great to see the power back on and the weather improved so we were able to have all of our children back and ready for learning yesterday.
Getting to Know the Learner Meetings
Due to the cyclone and uncertainty of electricity returning our Tuesday meetings were moved to next week on Tuesday 21 February, thank you for your understanding. If this new change does not work for you please get in touch with your child's teacher or the school office to reschedule.
Our teachers are looking forward to meeting some of our parents this afternoon / evening.
These meetings are an important opportunity to strengthen parent/school partnerships to help us meet the learning needs of your child and also answer any questions that you may have.
If you cannot make any of our meetings please get in touch with your child's teacher and arrange a time to meet.
We still have available slots for next week on Tuesday
Tuesday 21 February - 3:15pm - 7:05pm
Booking Your Meeting
Bookings can be made through School Interviews
