Week 10, Term 2 Newsletter
Tēnā koutou katoa! Greetings everyone!
We’ve made it! The last day of term has arrived and we can now take a rest and refresh ourselves in preparation for Term 3.
Thank you to the teachers and support staff for their incredible hard work this term. Thank you to our students for working diligently and trying your best. And finally, thank you to our whānau for your support. We are blessed, blessed, blessed!
Mid-year reports have been sent home today, please take the time to read through and have a look at them. The teachers have taken time to prepare and present a summary of your child’s learning for Term 1 and 2. We look forward to holding our Parent Teacher Interviews in Week 2 of next term.
I pray each and every one of you have a safe and restful holiday. May the Lord bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you.
Mrs. Tina Takimoana

Parent Teacher Interviews - Thursday 4 August
Interviews will be held here at school on Thursday 4 August from 9am to 5pm. There will be no formal instruction for your child, as your child’s teacher/s will be holding interviews on this day. It would be a great idea to bring your child along to discuss their learning with their teacher/s.
Appointments can be made using the link provided, or contact Bobbie at the office to get support to do this (when school recommences in Term 3).
