This week’s message from the Principal:

Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whānau and Friends of our School,

This will be the last newsletter of the year and time to reflect on another full year of learning and activity for Goldfields School. Teachers have been busy writing reports and taking time to reflect on successes and areas for further development. I have really enjoyed reading each teacher’s general comments it gives me a lovely picture of all the children in our school.

Your child’s school report will come home tomorrow. This is a summary of their achievement for 2019 and includes a general comment, a student self-assessment and a curriculum achievement report. There will also be a stationery list in the envelope with their 2020 requirements. This list will indicate which teacher your child will be with next year. Copies of stationery lists will be posted on our school website and will also be available at Paper plus in the new year.

Children will get to spend time with their 2020 teacher and class tomorrow.

Our Year 6 students have been writing speeches for the leavers assembly that is being held on Friday afternoon. This is a special occasion to celebrate our seniors before they leave us to head off to Cromwell College in 2020. All welcome.

The FOTS held their final meeting of the year last night and said farewell to President, Kali MacDonald. Kali has given many hours to supporting our school through the many fundraising events that the FOTS have run during her time on the committee. She has been an exceptional organiser and driving force for this group.

Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu,

Anna Harrison, Principal
