Term 1, Week 11, 2016

Everyone had a fantastic time at the disco last Friday evening. It was well organised, well run and well attended! Sincere thanks go to the PTA and staff who supported this event and also this week’s sausage sizzle lunch. A great team effort.



The teachers really appreciated that so many of you were able to come to your child’s learning conference earlier this week. The children like to share their successes and next step learning with you. The home/school partnership is vital!

Tonight is our school disco! We hope everyone has bought their tickets and is ready to come along for a fun evening. Tararua team 5 - 6pm, Ruahine team 6.15pm - 7.30pm.
Please park out on the road and come and collect your child/ren from just outside the hall doorway at the end of the event. Parents are welcome to stay and help/support too!

Thank you to the PTA and everyone who has helped with the preparation and organisation!

Welcome to Mrs Wendy Donnellan who has started at our school this week as a Learning Coach. Wendy will be working with learners in the Tararua team specifically.

Learning programmes remain in full swing as we head towards the end of the term. We respectfully ask that you keep working hard at home to have the children here at school by 8.45am each morning, ready to begin their learning and fun when the 8.50 bell rings.
