Nga mihi nui ki a koutou katoa – warm greetings to everyone
Welcome back to Term 3:
It is hard to believe that we are over half way through the year already!
This term we have a number of exciting things happening such as our school followed by cluster sppech competition, the Reporoa Valley Cultural Festival, the mini marathon, Pet Week, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths) programmes. Be sure to keep an eye on the calendar to make sure you don’t miss anything!
Important! We have two Teacher Only Days happening this term:
- 2nd September – Literacy professional learning at Upper Atimuri School with our Kahui Ako schools.
- 30th September – Kahui Ako teacher only day.
School will not be open on these days.
Welcome Whaea Pip:
A very warm welcome to our new teacher Phillippa Cox. Whaea Pip is in room 4 with our new entrant students. They have had a great start to the term.
Mask wearing in schools:
At the end of last term you would have received your child’s mid year report through HERO (our online SMS – Student Management System). If you have had any issues or have lost the instructions that were emailed and sent home on a paper sheet, please contact your child’s teacher ASAP.
Also, some of you booked your SLC (Student Learning Conference) in last term but then did not attend. We need to follow up with you and meet to discuss your child’s progress and will be in contact soon.
If you would like to know how we are doing as a whole school, the Senior Leadership Team report to the Board of Trustees can be found on our website.
It is very important that you are involved in your child’s education. Research shows that when parents take an interest in their child’s schooling, they do much better in school overall.
