Newsletter 25 - 20 August 2019

Nau mai haere mai Junior.

This week we began our Keeping Ourselves Safe health unit of work. Constable Carl will be coming in to work with each class alongside classroom teachers.

A reminder that Monday 26 August is our Staff Only Day. We are doing further learning on Digital Technology. School is closed for the day but SKIDS will be running.

Next year, we are planning to start a Māori bilingual class in Years 5 and 6 and possibly also for Year 4. Please contact us if you would like your child/ren in this pathway.

Thanks to everyone who is already collecting money for our A-thons. The students will be tested on their facts this Friday, 23rd August. Money will be collected outside of the staffroom from Tuesday, 27th August. For every $10 raised, students go into the draw to win prizes. This year we have LEGO, skateboards, scooters, a phone, a family zoo pass, a tablet and many other prizes.

Last week, our Year 6 students travelled to Kelston Boys High School for a future pathways expo. The day was a huge success and it is a day we hope to repeat. Lots of photos are on Facebook which show just how amazing the day was.

We hope to see you tomorrow night at 6pm for ‘Maths and a Meal”. Come along and learn what stage of maths your child is at and what you can do at home to work on maths skills in a fun way. It also means you can have a night off cooking! We have got kai covered! Bring the kids, bring the family - see you in the hall for some number fun.

Last week’s Proud Pupil Prizewinners were Jahmayne, Joseph, Georgia and Meki. These four were seen in the playground helping others and demonstrating our value of manaakitanga. It is always good to see students looking after others and these four did a superb job last week helping those who needed it at the time.
