START OF THE DAY TIMES:
A reminder that the bell rings for the start of the day at 8.50am. Please try to ensure that your tamariki arrive at school
between 8.30am and 8.45am. This allows time for them to come in, complete morning routines and be ready to start
their learning. We ALL have occasions where something doesn’t go to plan and children need to arrive late - that’s
understandable. However, regularly arriving after the bell means wasted time for everyone as missed instructions and
learning needs to be repeated.
Children enrolled in school are expected to attend regularly unless they are genuinely medically unwell. The Ministry of
Education regards 90% attendance as the minimum threshold for regular attendance. We are currently reviewing our
attendance records and will be making contact to offer additional support to those not meeting these guidelines.
Thank you for your support.
