Term 3, Week 8 - 2019

I think everyone is still smiling about the TKW ball that was held last night. It was just magic to see all the children dressed up in their ‘finest’ outfits, and have them dancing away to show all their skills and fancy footwork.
Thanks so much to the staff who assisted with planning, set up and implementation. Thanks to all the families that made an effort to come along and enjoy the evening too.

Please read the weekly newsletter and/or read the alerts on your school app as they come through. It never ceases to disappoint me when I hear parents/caregivers abruptly grumbling to staff about ‘not being told’ something was on, or is happening here at school. We try really hard to communicate well with everyone – where possible things are on a term calendar, usually items appear in the newsletter multiple times before occurring, we regularly send out reminder apps. It really is up to you to do your bit to be informed – simply read the messages every week. We are happy to send hard copies of the newsletter if that is what you need, otherwise all we need is your current email address and a few minutes of your time.

Thank you to all our loyal readers (and my apologies if you find some things repetitive because you read every week).

A mobile dental unit will be visiting Hokowhitu School for two weeks from next Monday 2nd September to examine and provide preventative treatment (cleaning, fissure sealants, x-rays and fluoride treatment) where required for patients due for their annual check. Parents/caregivers of children due for their annual check were notified by letter that came home in bags on Wednesday.

It is anticipated that the mobile will be returning later in term four to see a further group of children who are due for their annual dental check.

If parents have any concerns or wish to be present at their child’s dental appointment, please contact us on either of the numbers below.

Term 3, Week 5 - 2019

This week our HUGE congratulations go to the selected students from TKT and TKA who exhibited their science fair projects at the Manawatu event. EVERY single entry from our school received one or more awards. Special mention must be made of Mila H/T whose entry won the top technology exhibit of the whole fair! Wow! Mila’s entry is on display in the foyer outside the staffroom, so do come and have a look at it!

Also, as the winter sports season draws closer to completion, I’d like to say a HUGE ‘thank you’ to parents who have coached, managed and/or supported teams – we simply couldn’t have as many children involved in sports without you.

Term 3, Week 4 - 2019

Our HUGE congratulations to the 8 students who represented our school at last week’s Mathex competition.
Our year 6 team of Silas, Mila, Leejun and Jonny were placed 5th = (with the 4th highest score). There were 44 teams entered in this level – wow!!

Our year 5 team of Daisy, Milla, Charlie and Wairehu were 2nd = in their competition. They were only 1 point behind the winning team – wow again!

Fantastic results for both teams – to finish in the top 5 teams is quite outstanding, as the competition is very tough!
