PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Kia ora tātou,


This week, from Tuesday to Friday, teachers are swapping classes for 20 minutes each day. Our aim is to continue to build connections across the school while sharing the love of reading. Teachers will do another rotation today. When your child comes home today, ask them, "Who read to you today? What story did they read? What part of the story did you like the most?"


On Monday we had a group of students compete in our school's competitive Swimming Sports. They competed with great energy and we are very proud of them. Whaea Lynne is now organising our Interschool Swimming Team for the carnival on Wednesday 29th June. We wish them well.


Also on Monday, Mrs Raue returned from her parental leave to open our New Entrant class in Room 8. We are thrilled to have her back. Welcome back, Zoe!


A reminder that on Monday 4th July we have a Teacher Only Day - school is closed for students. Throughout this day, between 10:00am and 5:00pm, we are holding 3-way conferences where you meet with your child and their teacher(s) so they can share their learning. We will also have some times available on Tuesday 5th July between 3:20 and 5:20pm. See the information below for the link to make a booking. Our goal is to see 100% of families.


Have a great week, and stay safe and well.

Spare Clothing

With the change of seasons upon us and the weather becoming colder and wetter it may pay for some students to have spare clothing in their bags for times of need.


Also, if you have any pants or trackies for children 8 and under that you could donate to us, we would really appreciate it.
