Term 2, Week 1, 2016

Welcome back to Term 2. It’s great to see all of the children and staff back safe, smiling and refreshed. What fantastic weather we have had over the holidays. I’m sure that we all hope that the winter stays away as long as possible. A huge welcome also to new families that have started at Hokowhitu School this term. Mrs Dixon has begun her much-deserved sabbatical and I feel honoured to be leading our wonderful school this term in her absence.

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.

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!
