Term 1, Week 10 - 2021

I trust that everyone had a fabulous long weekend, and enjoyed the autumn sun. Due to this being a very short week, this week’s newsletter is mostly to bring you up to date with end of term and early term two events. There will be photos of this week’s Rippa Rugby tournament and the Enviro teams outing in next weeks’ newsletter.

Term 1, Week 9 - 2021

It has been great to see so many of you here this week to spend time in your child’s kete, having the opportunity to chat with their teachers, and see some of the exciting things happening in classrooms here at school. We also enjoyed sharing current learning goals and giving you an indication of progress in the NZ curriculum.

Next Wednesday we are offering a whānau korero for anyone who wishes to have a follow up (10 minute) 1:1 conversation with their child’s whānau teacher - these will be held between 3.20pm and 5.20pm on Wednesday 7th April. Booking an appointment time is essential If you want an extra discussion please email your child’s whānau teacher prior to 8.30am on Wednesday to see if there are any spaces left.

Ms Finikin is also available to meet with whānau (by appointment) that afternoon too.

Term 1, Week 7 - 2021

It has been a busy sporting week with the Years 1-3 duathlon and the Year 5/6 interschool triathlon taking place. Congratulations to everyone who participated in one of these events this week.


What an awesome team of parents who came together after school on Wednesday afternoon to start planning some fun and fundraising events for the coming months.
A pizza lunch at the end of the term, a frozen food fundraiser early next term, a disco midway through T2 and then a
‘wheelathon’ around mid-year are all things on the radar!

Even if you can’t attend meetings, you are welcome to support the PTA by helping out with specific events. The more hands we have on deck, the lighter the workload for everyone.

Term 1, Week 6 - 2021

We hope that many of you were able to pop into the classrooms before school today and enjoy sharing some of your child’s learning with them.
Congratulations to all those children who are independently coming into their rooms in the mornings - whānau you should be very impressed with their ability to complete morning routines etc by themselves.

Staff are always willing to make an appointment to chat with you if you want to have a discussion regarding your child and/or their learning.

We look forward to our upcoming Goal Setting evenings on the 30th and 31st of March (for those children who have not had a 6 week or 6 month interview already this year).
