Summer sports are either finished or close to finishing for the season. My sincere thanks to all the coaches/managers and parents who have supported teams. There are still some sport fees outstanding - please make these payments straight away as the school has already paid these subscriptions on your behalf. Sports uniforms (on hire) should also be returned to the teachers in TKA.
When your child is expressing an interest in joining a winter team, we rely on you to ensure they make a commitment to attend practices and games for the whole season. Perseverance is one of the STRIVE values we aspire to here at Hokowhitu School and we thank you for supporting this.

It was our younger learners turn to shine on the field this week with our duathlon being held yesterday. It is great to see children giving their very best efforts to things, even when they are finding it challenging. It is also great to see how many of you managed to juggle your busy timetables to be able to come and support the children - they love having an audience, so thank you.

Thank you so much for the positive feedback following EOTC week. A simple ‘thanks’ means a huge amount to us - we know we don’t always get everything right ALL the time, but we genuinely try to! From our perspective the week was a huge success, with a fantastic range of skills and learning. Of course, there are also things that we would streamline for the future too, so we will happily accept any feedback you may have.

At the time of writing this newsletter, EOTC week is in full swing. It has been so exciting for so many children - from the clever little people who have learnt to ride a bike without their trainer wheels, to the super sleuths of orienteering or amazing races, to the triathletes who gallantly raced to the end, to the budding Lydia Ko’s and/or potential Steven Adams of this world - everyone has been participating fully and learning lots of new skills and attitudes. Spending time in team building activities at this stage of the year is vital for relationships, both with peers and teachers.

Summer sports are underway already. Thank you so much to those of you who have put your names forward to act as coaches and/or managers - we simply couldn’t enter teams without your help. A plea from me - children and parents alike, please show your appreciation to your coach/manager by attending practices, arriving promptly for games and being respectful of decisions they make. If for any reason you cannot attend, please make sure they know in advance - as being a member of a team requires commitment.
