Term 3, Week 1 2016

Welcome to Term 3 everyone. It was great to see excited kids rushing in the doors on Monday morning, obviously pleased to be back with their friends and teachers.
A special welcome to new families to our school - we are confident you will be pleased to be part of Team Hokowhitu! Always ask if you are unsure or concerned about something, as we want to do our best to communicate well with you and have a strong home/school partnership.

I am delighted to be back ‘at my desk’ following last term’s sabbatical. Over the time, I completed school visits and research into ways to support effective personalised learning in both flexible learning spaces and single cell classrooms. I now look forward to sharing my learning with the staff so we can further develop learners that are confident, connected, actively involved, life long learners!

My sincere thanks to our Board of Trustees who supported my sabbatical application. Special thanks go to Sam Bradnock (ably supported by Helen Griffin, Juls Honore and the rest of the staff) who kept the school running so effectively.
