We send home a newsletter every Tuesday. Our newsletter is very informative
and lets parents know what is happening at school. Backdated newsletters available below as well.
Ngā Kia ora te whānau o Glen Eden Primary School.
Welcome to Nikolina, Nemanja, Raiden-Lee, Israel, Joshua, Donia, Connor, Peyton, Tamana, Marianna and Ch’e.
I hope you all had a wonderful break with whānau over the holiday break. The Glen Eden Primary teachers were busily writing reports which will be coming home on or before the 10th of November.
This term our focus is on Kairangi - striving to do the best we can. It is only a 9 week term and we have lots and lots planned including an art exhibition, the Mayow fun day, choir festival, athletics, the Year 6 dance, monitors trip and prize giving.
Next Friday our Samoan, Kapa Haka and choir groups will be performing at Kelifest. This is held at Kelston Intermediate and a great opportunity to see all of the schools in our area perform.
In a few weeks we will also be putting classes together for 2018 and will invite you to see us should you have any specific requests. If your child is in Year 6 they should now be enrolled as Intermediates will be in the process of appointing staff and compiling class lists also. Please come and see me if you need help to enrol.
This term Katie Jolly, our SWIS, is running a parenting programme called Building Awesome Whānau. The details are on the reverse side of this newsletter. It is a free course designed to give parents some more tools to cope with the demands of parenting. You are welcome to ring Katie on 0276859086 or email her on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Finally huge congratulations to Lana Aitken who is now “Nanny” to a beautiful moko. Caeser-John Tamatoa Farrell was born was born on 11 October and he is perfect in every way. We wish Lana and the whole whānau all the very best and look forward to seeing this little man grow.
