Kia ora GEPS whānau

Here we are in the last week of Term 3. We sincerely hope that you and you whānau are doing as well as can be expected.

We have our fingers crossed that after the holidays we will all be back at GEPS. We have lots of cool things planned for Term 4 and can’t wait to get back to learning.

We will soon be starting to put together classes for 2021. Today all of those whānau who have requested for tamariki to go into either the Year 3/4 or the Year 5/6 Māori bilingual class will receive a text to confirm this request. If there are too many for this class we will need to look at our criteria to gain a place in the classroom.

Thank you to those of you who have participated in the GEPS Health Education Consultation survey. The cut off for responses is this coming Friday, 1st October so it’s not too late if you want your feedback to be included. Please email if you need the survey emailed to you.

By now, all Year 6 students should be enrolled at the intermediate school they will be attending next year. Please email if you have any questions or need assistance with this.

Finally massive thanks to our awesome kaiako, staff, tamariki and whānau. Teaching and Learning in lockdown is not easy. We know everyone gave it 100% and did the very best that they could do. Once again we are very proud to be a part of this awesome community. Fa’afetai tele lava.

Keep safe whānau - let’s all hope for a great Term 4 at GEPS!
