BOARD OF TRUSTEES UPDATE
At the first 2020 meeting of the Board of Trustees (held earlier this week), Mr Tim Foss was
re-elected as the Chairperson and Mr Philip Steer as the Deputy Chairperson. The board meets twice a
term and meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is scheduled for the 26th March
commencing at 5.30pm.
Today we take over the interior of the other two rooms in TKW. Exciting! This means from early next
week Mrs Orr’s tamariki will be learning in their new classroom – Waka! Mrs Blay will soon be joining
Mrs Orr in this space as she starts our second New Entrant class for this year.
It also means that the staffroom can again be our staffroom!
Work is ongoing with the deck area outside TKW. This is scheduled to take another 6 to 7 weeks to
Last night’s pool party was really well attended and lots of fun. Thanks so much to everyone who came
and ‘met and mingled’ and enjoyed the evening.
Special thanks to aPlus for their sponsorship of the sausage sizzle last night too. Much appreciated!
A very warm welcome to 2020 to everyone. A special welcome to our new staff, learners and whānau. We are confident that you will all feel supported to be an integral part of our school community in no time at all!
Our first inquiry focus school wide is ‘Turangawaewae’ - Understanding Where I Stand. Term 1 is always action packed with summer activities including water safety skills, EOTC camps for Years 4 - 6 learners, settling into new routines etc.
It is fantastic to have half of TKW ( Te Kete Wakahuia) completed (inside at least). We are hopeful that Mrs Orr and Mrs Blay’s rooms will be ready before the end of this month. The builders can then focus on completing the deck outside these rooms.
Thank you so much to everyone who was able to attend the Christmas Carnival/ School prize-giving/ Year 6 graduation on Tuesday evening. Lots of people tell us that they like the combination of the casual carnival atmosphere followed by the celebrations associated with performances and prize- giving. My special thanks go to the PTA who do lots of ‘behind the scenes’ work in preparing the food stalls, along with ‘front of the house’ duties in selling, serving and cleaning up. Thanks to our teaching and non-teaching staff who also put extra effort into supporting the occasion.
