Week 2, Term 4, Thursday 28th October 2021
It was wonderful yesterday to see our tamariki engaged in two exciting educational experiences with outside providers.
We were fortunate to have Dan Fisher here this week to work with our tamariki. Yesterday, it was the turn of the Year 1 and 2 classes and they were learning how to throw and catch balls by taking part in fun activities to enhance their cricket skills. On Tuesday Dan worked with tamariki in Tihiōtonga Team. A big thank you to the Rotorua Cricket Association and Geyser Cricket club for giving our tamariki this opportunity.
Currently the Lakes Council team are here at Glenholme working with Whakapoungakau Team on the Bike Ready Programme. The Bike Ready Programme encourages students to cycle instead of catching buses or taking short trips in cars. Our tamariki are really enjoying working with the trained instructors.
Today the whole school took part in the New Zealand ShakeOut national earthquake drill at 9.30am. Please reinforce this at home by asking your child what they should do in the event of an earthquake.
We are currently in the process of planning our End of Year Award Ceremonies. Due to Covid Restrictions we are planning to continue with these ceremonies but scale them down so that they do not involve large groups of tamariki. Unfortunately we will not be able to have any whanau present so we are looking at how we can stream the ceremonies to you all so you do not miss out completely.
A reminder that we have a TEACHER ONLY DAY next week on the 5th November.
