Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Te Ara Puawai - Afterschool Tutoring

This term we are offering an afterschool tutoring programme. The programme is free of charge and will be run from 3:10-4:00 and led by Mrs Fourie and Mrs O’Reilly.

The intention of this programme is to provide extra support for students in the areas of Maths and English. In each session, the teachers will focus on a key concept and provide students with strategies and skills to further develop in this area.

English and Maths concepts will be covered on both days but separate tasks and teaching will be provided depending on what area has been selected. Students may attend one or both days (Tuesday and/or Thursday), however, students need to commit to the day/s and session they have chosen for the term.

The concepts that will be covered throughout the term are as follows:


● Place value to decimals

● Adding and subtracting multi-digit numbers

● Multiplication and division


● Comprehension skills

● Vocabulary

● Spelling

● Handwriting

● Writing

Our TE ARA PUAWAI expectations:

● Students must attend all sessions. If your child will be absent for a session please email or send a note to Mrs Fourie jessicaf@bayintermediate.school.nz or Mrs O’Reilly emmao@bayintermediate.school.nz

● Students will need to attend with a positive attitude and a willingness to engage and learn.

If you would like your child to attend Te Ara Puawai - Afterschool Tutoring please complete the permission slip below and return it to the office as soon as possible.
