Thank you so much to everyone who has supported the Year 4 - 6 visits to Te Rangimarie marae this week. As usual, the
Te Awe Awe whānau have provided our tamariki with a very welcoming environment in which to learn more about the
culture and traditions of our local Rangitane people.
We will be holding a whānau hui in Term 2 and look forward to your suggestions/ideas for ways that we can further
strengthen these partnerships and develop deeper understandings.

I trust that everyone had a fabulous long weekend, and enjoyed the autumn sun. Due to this being a very short
week, this week’s newsletter is mostly to bring you up to date with end of term and early term two events.
There will be photos of this week’s Rippa Rugby tournament and the Enviro teams outing in next weeks’

It has been great to see so many of you here this week to spend time in your child’s kete, having the
opportunity to chat with their teachers, and see some of the exciting things happening in classrooms here at
school. We also enjoyed sharing current learning goals and giving you an indication of progress in the NZ
Next Wednesday we are offering a whānau korero for anyone who wishes to have a follow up (10 minute) 1:1
conversation with their child’s whānau teacher - these will be held between 3.20pm and 5.20pm on Wednesday

It has been a busy sporting week with the Years 1-3 duathlon and the Year 5/6 interschool triathlon taking place.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in one of these events this week.
What an awesome team of parents who came together after school on Wednesday afternoon to start planning some fun
and fundraising events for the coming months.
A pizza lunch at the end of the term, a frozen food fundraiser early next term, a disco midway through T2 and then a
‘wheelathon’ around mid-year are all things on the radar!
Even if you can’t attend meetings, you are welcome to support the PTA by helping out with specific events. The more
hands we have on deck, the lighter the workload for everyone.
