Term 3, Week 3 - 2021


Our school was very ably represented at this year’s Mathex competition, held this morning at the Awapuni racecourse.
Each school enters their very best mathematician/problem solvers/team players and it is a highly competitive session with approximately 30 teams in each year group.

Our sincere congratulations to:
Peyton B, Krystal J, Emily K and Ettiene D. This team finished in a stunning 2nd place, only 1 point behind the winning team.
Jake Z, Bradley P, Emily Z and Lena M. This team finished in a very creditable 14th place. Well Done!
The wider squad that supported these teams included
Boston D, Fergus M, Indigo W and Josh T. Congratulations and thank you to these people too.

We hope that the children are making progress with practising their basic facts (and gaining sponsorship to support their efforts along the way). Improving basic facts/tables and number knowledge is HUGELY beneficial to success in mathematics and so we have come up with a way to provide an incentive for the children to improve their recall and accuracy. There will be a prize for the person with the highest sponsorship.
We encourage the children to be practising the basic fact sheet (at their level) both at home and at school - ready for the test on the 13th August.
don’t have any sponsors recorded) MUST be returned to school by next Friday - ready to be marked off.

Term 2, Week 10 - 2021


As a follow up to mid-year reports being sent home, we invite you to come along to school and have the opportunity to chat with each of your child’s teachers and see the learning going on in the kete. While it is not essential (if you have calendar clashes), we try to even out numbers by requesting the A-L and M-Z surnames split over the two evenings.

One of our new traditions at school has been to plant a tree over Matariki. The whole school came out in support and 4 of our students assisted with the planting of a kowhai tree. Our Kapa Haka roopu also performed. Thanks to Mrs Blay and Mr Masoe for their work in preparation for this occasion.

Last night was also our whānau hui evening - an opportunity for our Māori whānau to come along to school and share their ideas and aspirations for the tamariki here who are of Māori descent. We thank those of you who were able to attend and korero with us.
