Newsletter - Term 3, Week 2

Friday, 5 August 2022


Kia ora koutou,

What a great week of learning we have just had. It's fantastic to see all our students busy writing and practising their speeches. I look forward to judging the speech finals in a couple of weeks.

There seems to be another round of the flu moving through the school. Many students are starting to get coughs, sore throats and runny noses. The best medicine for this is rest. We hope this doesn't last too long and we are hoping we can move back to normality soon.

If you haven't yet booked in for the student conferences - the link is below. We have plenty of spaces still available so please make use of this opportunity to talk with your child's class teacher and discuss the progress that has been made over the past six months.

Nga mihi,

Simon Bell

Classroom happenings....

Room 6

In Room 6 we have been doing some more painting; having another go at mixing colours and trying out different brush strokes to create a ‘feathery look’ for our birds. I wonder if we will like our second attempts more than our first?

Room 4 - Bad Hair Day!!!!
