Newsletter Week 10, Term 3
Huirangi Primary School, Friday 30th September 2022
Kia Ora Koutou, Hello Everyone!
Another term has passed us by! It is awesome to see almost 100% turnout for our Learning Conferences! Thank you for taking the time to celebrate your child's learning with their teachers. It certainly takes a village to raise a child, and having your input and sharing your aspirations towards the what, why and how of their learning has a positive impact. Thank you.
Thanks to the Menzshed in Waitara for their donation of the Cornhole game. This is becoming popular with the kids in the playground, and I am sure will be used many times during the summer months.
Have an enjoyable two week break with your children. I look forward to seeing everyone back fresh and energised ready for the last term of the year!

Keeping Ourselves Safe
The aim of the programme is to:
- teach students a range of safe practices that they can use when interacting with other people, both online and face to face
- teach students how to recognise the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships, and encourage students who have been or are being abused to seek help
- prevent abuse by making parents and teachers more aware of their responsibilities to help students avoid abuse.

Also, thank you to the Waitara Fire Service and the Police for providing free sausages for our students and water for the waterslide!
