Reporting to parents mid and end of year:

This year our reports will be sent out digitally through our SMS (Student Management System) called Linc-Ed. You will be given instructions on how to access the report later in the term. Parents can then keep tabs at any time on their child’s progress, attendance, school account through their log in on Linc-Ed. Teachers are currently writing the reports which will be ready for you at the end of week 9 this term.

Book Fair:

Enchanted Forest  Book Fair

Tuesday 4 to Friday 7 June 2019

Our annual Book Fair is back!!!!


Our Book Fair begins on Tuesday in the library. This is a chance for everyone to participate and get the reading bug…we have competitions, lunchtime activities and of course the opportunity to purchase books from Ashton Scholastic.

The opening times are – before school from 8.30am, at lunchtime and from approximately 2pm to 4pm.

There are all sorts of books from non-fiction to chapter books to picture and colouring in books. The purchases enable us to choose free books for the library which in turn helps everyone in the school. Also, donations of books for the library or class are always appreciated!

As well as lunchtime activities and competitions, we will run a miniature garden competition. The children can make miniature gardens (sand saucers) at home and bring them on Wednesday to display. As the theme of the Book Fair is ‘Enchanted Forest’, the children can use their imagination to create a garden/forest of their own. Think trees, ponds, bridges, flowers, animals, buildings, books etc.

Friday is dress-up day. The children can come dressed as their favourite book character or something inspired by the theme, ‘Enchanted Forest’…Fairy tale characters, animals, trees, magical creatures are some suggestions. Bring a gold coin donation towards the cost of running the Book Fair.

So please come down and see what’s happening in the library and encourage your child to join in the reading fun.

Any queries, contact Mrs V 😊

Reporoa Primary School Board of trustees’ election

Remember to get your voting papers back to school by noon this Friday.

 All voting papers need to be received at the school by noon on election day 7th June 2019 to be counted as valid.

NZSTA has received an update from New Zealand Post about the post marking of envelopes.
In accordance with legislation, a voting paper received after noon on election day is invalid, unless the voting paper was posted and the date stamp on the envelope shows that it was posted before noon on election day. Any voting papers that are post marked by noon on election day and arrive within five days can be counted

NZ Post can no longer guarantee that all envelopes will be post marked. For those envelopes that are not post marked, returning officers will not have any evidence that the envelope has been posted before noon on election day.

If you intend to post your voting paper please post it early
