Term 1- Week 7, 17th March 2022

Kia ora koutou,

Congratulations to both of our teachers who are currently on maternity leave. Whaea Crystal and Whaea Rachel have both had beautiful baby girls. We look forward to them both bringing their babies into school to show them off to us.

It has been wonderful this week to have had a number of children return to school. Our numbers this week have risen to 64% attendance. We certainly look forward to this trend continuing as the children recover.

On Wednesday we had an Earthquake Drill. Please ask your child what they need to do if there is an earthquake while they are at school. You could also talk about a plan in the event of an earthquake while you are at home. I was particularly impressed to see the students who were outside move away from the trees, drop to the ground, curling up like a turtle and covering their heads.

This week at lunchtime I have had the pleasure of taking students from Whakapoungakau team who have great behaviour in the classroom for a swim at lunchtime.
