Teachers Paid Union Meeting
On behalf of our NZEI teaching staff I’d like to say a big thank you for your cooperation and support regarding Wednesday’s earlier than usual finish. This allowed our union staff members to discuss, dissect and clarify their thinking around the latest offer. We will hear within the next few days which way the teachers as a collective across the country have voted.

Life education - Team Ruru
Students in the Team Ruru have spent 3 hours in the Life Education mobile classroom learning about substances. The purpose of the programme was to provide students with factual information to enable them to make better decisions.
Some of the areas we explored included,
The definition of a drug – a chemical substance that affects the way the body and/or brain work.
We used this definition to explore how common substances affect the brain and body.
We explored some of the reasons why young people choose to experiment with substances.
We explored some of the issues around vaping and alcohol in some depth.
We looked at the anatomy of the brain and how substances change this.
We looked at some of the consequences of drug addiction and impacts that
methamphetamine can have on the health system, whanau, the community, and individuals.
The students also had their last chance to hang with Harold the Giraffe and have some fun!
A big thank you to both the school and community for supporting the work the Life Education does with Tamariki in our region.
Purchase your Own New SAS Sports Shirt!
We have just gone live on DirectGroup Uniforms with our new Sports Shirts that you are able to purchase. We feel moving forward this is a great option and will save a lot of time issuing and collecting sports shirts. At this time we still have our other sports shirts for anyone that is playing and has not purchased their own yet. Check them out at:
You can purchase the sport shirts and they arrive directly to your address and they even have Afterpay so that it makes it possible to budget. We are looking forward to seeing these appearing on our sports fields.
Congratulations Miss Griffin...
Congratulations again and well done on an achieving this milestone in your career.
Congratulations to our Week 5 certificate recipients
Matariki Breakfast 21st July Term 3
Every year at Stanley Avenue School we celebrate Matariki, which ends with a culminating activity where we involve our school community. This year we are planning a Matariki Breakfast on Friday 21st July (Week 1 Term 3).

We are currently seeking sponsorship from our school and wider community, to support us with this event. If you are a part of any business or family who might like to support us in any way, please feel free to contact Chris Finucane/Assistant Principal, or John Byers/ Principal.
