ATTENDANCE

It is really good to see that the attendance levels at school are on an increase.  We appreciate you sending your children to school everyday.  We have adapted our learning topics for a high interest level and have seen the benefits of these.  If your child is absent please leave a message on the school phone or text 027 4535 111.  If your child is off for 3 or more days please provide a medical Certificate for their absence.We appreciate the communication.

TRANSMISSION GULLY ROADWORKS

With the formation of the new roads being introduced to our community we are teaching our children, and reminding them, about the importance of safety while travelling to and from school.  There will be trucks and road works holding up traffic in the near future and we encourage our children to cross the road safely by using the pedestrian crossing.

COOKED LUNCHES

We would like to remind you that the children are provided with cooked lunches every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Whaea Millie has gratefully accepted the position of head chef to help support us during the term. Thankyou to Whaea Millie who came in on her day off to cook an extra lunch for our Tamariki today.

Due to our cook being away there will be no free hot lunch tomorrow, please make sure you pack some lunch for your child.

ROAD SAFETY

As we are supporters of safety around our busy area I would like to remind you that if your child rides their bike to school that they need to wear their helmet.  It is the law and as a school we must support and teach children safety first.  With all the cars that we have visited and driving around our car parks I would hate to see an incident occur before our eyes.

KO WAI AU

It is a pleasure to welcome back the team from Ko Wai Au? The students are becoming more and more familar about the ways that we cope when under pressure, confronting conflicts and managing our behaviours.

ENERGIZE PROGRAMME

The students have been sharing their fitness skills with Whaea Linda.  We appreciate the information that she offers the children and explains why and what is more beneficial for their growing bodies.
