Newsletter 13, Week 5 Term 3
Waiau School ⎪ 26th August 2022
Last week we were very fortunate to explore our own backyard more specifically Mt Lyford. It was a fantastic experience for our whole school, made possible by our Trail Ride Fundraiser. I particularly enjoyed watching our students develop and fine tune their ‘on snow’ skills over the course of the day and the sheer grit each and everyone of our tamariki displayed was amazing.Our facebook page has some wonderful photos of the action on piste.
A huge thank you to all of the parents (& Hannah) who came up and actively supported our awesome students.
Keep warm and dry,
School Photos - Next Tuesday 30th August
PhotoLife Studios will be visiting next Tuesday the 30th of August to take the school photos for this year. Each class will have a class photo taken, all children will have individual photos and siblings will be photographed together.
Sibling forms have been sent home today with the children. You will receive a code in a few weeks time where you can view the photo proofs and order online.
All children to be in correct school uniform please.
The school will hold a working bee on the 9th of September at 2pm - Students will be involved and help with gardening/weeding and a few maintenance jobs.
Please bring along some tools, gloves, spades and even a wheelbarrow if you can transport it. Early BBQ/Sausage sizzle to be held after.
As part of the Ministry of Education connectivity drive we have been asked to check with our school community to see if any families need assistance with internet connectivity. If this applies to you please get in touch with us by Monday 29th August. We may be able to access some assistance for you.
Reading and maths activities - Room 1 have been busy while Mrs Macfarlane has been away. Mrs Macfarlane will be returning on Monday. The children are looking forward to hearing about her adventures.
Community Consultation Survey
We value parents and caregivers' thoughts and feedback about what we do at Waiau School and how we do it, in order to reflect on and to improve our practices. Your responses to this survey will help shape our Strategic Planning and our direction for 2023.
We will be emailing this link out on Monday.
