Week 9, Term 4

Today is Mr Sloan’s last day with us - in fact he flies out of New Zealand on Sunday! We sincerely thank Sam for his input into our school and wish he, Kerri and Charles all the very best adventures in Zambia.

We also farewell Ms Treder and Ms Geary at the end of this year. Both Annette and Kirsty have completed their fixed term contracts with us. Thank you to you both and best wishes for the future.

Staffing updates: Ben McCarthy has applied for an additional 2 terms of sick leave to allow him to complete his treatment. Mrs Michelle Mikkelsen has accepted Ben’s position for the first half of next year - Michelle is an experienced teacher who has done a considerable amount of relieving for us this year in the flexible learning spaces, so she will be a real asset in TKM!

It also gives me great pleasure to be able to let you know that Mrs Carlee Hodge has been appointed as the Co-Leader of the Ruahine Team. Carlee will lead in TKA - the Y4/5 kete. She is an experienced team leader at levels right across the school, however is currently leading a Y7/8 team at North Street School (Feilding). The children who are going to be in TKA next year will get to meet Mrs Hodge next week.
