We have had many sick children, with 40 children absent on Monday, 35 on Tuesday and 43 by the end of today. Most children are taking several days to recover, with many needing a course of antibiotics. We also had six staff members absent today. If your children is unwell. Please keep them at home. We have advised staff to stay at home also. We are grateful to our valued relievers for being able to cover at very short notice. The holiday break will be welcomed by all.
Thanks to our Whanau o Goldfields for organising a very successful hangi last Friday, and to all the parents who supported this. Special thanks to Karleigh, Mel, Dutchie, Callum and John for the many hours they put into this. What an amazing team! My husband John and I thought this was the most delicious hangi we have ever eaten.
Kia pai to hararei. Have a safe holiday, Sharon.
Board of Trustees Report: June 2015
I thought that 11-weeks could be a long term so hard to believe we are at the end of it! We have a lot of children away this week so they are clearly due for some rest and recreationJ
You will have noticed the removal of the trees and garden from outside between rooms 1 and 4. This is where the temporary portable building will be placed and will be our 12th classroom. Despite having this in place for the start of term 3, we are still pushing through the construction of the 2 new classrooms. The tenders are closed and the funding proposal will be presented to the Ministry of Education for final approval very shortly. Once the classrooms have been completed, the portable will be removed and we can continue with our ongoing entranceway development.
On behalf of the board, we wish Sharon all the best for her sabbatical leave. We know you will bring some great resources back to Goldfields as well as enjoying some time away with John. I am sure that Anna will step into her role as acting Principal for term 3 with ease and has the full support of the board.
Our next meeting is Thursday 20 August at 7.30 pm, all welcome.
Maree Piebenga, Board of Trustees Chair
