Nau mai haere mai Harmony and Avery.

Tuatahi thanks to Alana McKenzie who did an amazing job as Acting Principal last week while Kathryn Arbon, Lana Aitken and I were at the Future Leaders education conference.

Last Friday, Mr Davids and Miss Toluaki took our girls cricket team to a tournament run by NZ Cricket. Our Year 5/6 team won all four of their games and our Year 3/4 team had two wins and a draw. Both Miss Toluaki and Mr Davids have reported that the skill and enthusiasm of our tamariki was outstanding. This was also noted by the organisers of the tournament. Ka mau te wehi, girls!

This Wednesday afternoon, Tui team (Year 5/6) are going to Kelston Boys to view parts of their cultural performances that they had prepared for Polyfest. We will travel to KBHS by bus but will need to walk back. We will be ferrying students back in vans and cars but some students may be back to school after 3pm.

This Wednesday night at 6:30, there is a meeting for all Tui team parents about camp. Please come along if you want to know more about camp and we’ll be able to answer any questions you may have.

Last week at the conference, we heard from many speakers and had time to reflect on where we are heading as a kura. We will present our findings to the Board of Trustees at our meeting next Monday. All are welcome at these meetings. Elections for the BOT are fast approaching. Please see Dianne Rayner in the office if you would like further information about the upcoming elections.

A reminder that all out of zone enrolments for Term 2 need to be in by April 5.

Many of our classes participated in a session with the St Johns in schools programme last week. Students learnt a variety of skills, appropriate to their age group on how to respond in an emergency situation. Some learnt how to put someone who is not responding into the recovery position, others learnt about
