Newsletter 2nd November 2022

Levin East School


Kia ora tātou,

Thank you for the feedback on our draft definition of engagement, it is really helpful as we go forward.

Recently we have had a small number of students using devices inappropriately. Please remind your child that our computer filters pick up everything and that they have a responsibility to use their devices responsibly and respectfully. I have spoken to those children I have needed to. Thanking you for your support in advance.

Aue! November has arrived. I really feel like it has snuck up on us. Another busy couple of weeks ahead. Tomorrow our Cross Country team head to Poroutawhao to compete in the Interschool event. We wish them all the best, knowing they will represent themselves and their kura with pride.

Friday is a BIG day! At 10:45am our Kapahaka perform at Waiopehu College in Te Ahurei o Horowhenua. They are excited to be involved and I look forward to watching them. They make me very proud.

Following on in the afternoon (12:30 start) is our Colour Dash. We all really love this event and seeing the laughs, smiles and shenanigans that go on. Hopefully, we will see you there.

Have a great week, looking forward to seeing you at the events as they roll out.
