Entries for March 2016


Term 1, Week 7, 2016

Term 1 assessments are currently underway and teachers will then be preparing Stage 1 of your child’s Progressive Report. This report will be handed to you following Learning Conferences on the 12th and 14th of April. (on line bookings are now available at www.schoolinterviews.co.nz using our school code)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LEARNING CONFERENCE DATES ARE THE 12TH AND 14TH APRIL (not the 5th and 7th as stated in the ‘very flawed’ notice that some of you received on Monday of this week). If you have already made a booking for the wrong dates, you will need to rebook using this revised code! Our sincere apologies for any confusion!

The ballot for Terms 3 and 4 New Entrant enrolments will be held on the 8th April. This means that we MUST have enrolment forms completed and handed in by this time. This includes families who already have a child here at school - please don’t assume we know about you!

If you know of anyone who is expecting/hoping that their new entrant will be starting at our school in Terms 3 or 4 of this year, please let them know about the upcoming ballot and requirements.

Doesn’t our planter box look lovely now it is fully planted? Thank you so much to the team of children who planted these for us with the support of Miss Coley, Mrs Handcock and Laurie Howell from Palmers Garden World. This completes the first stage of the combined PTA/BoT project to enhance the frontage of our school - stage 2 is yet to come!
