Principal's Weekly Update
RAISE Goal: I know my learning goals
Te reo phrase of the week: rarangi ki waho (line up outside)
It has been wonderful to see our school jackets on show this week. They look great and no doubt will be a big hit in general, especially as the colder weather approaches. In recent weeks we have done a real push on making sure that our students are wearing the correct school uniform. The most common item that has been identified as needing attention are the shorts the students are wearing. Thank you to the parents/caregivers who received the uniform correction note and quickly sorted out the appropriate school attire.
As we head into the colder months, now is a great time to check your child’s uniform needs, particularly if they are in need of a school jersey or hoodie. Please note that students are also allowed to wear unlabelled navy blue track pants and girls can wear navy blue tights under their skorts if they desire.
On Wednesday the Prime Minister announced some significant changes to our nation’s Covid regulations and requirements. We are currently working our way through these and will provide a full update on how they apply to us in a school setting next week. As of today we currently have three Covid cases within our student population.
Kia pai to wiki (have a wonderful weekend).
