Principals Message: 14.12.16

Kia ora Parents, Whānau, Caregivers and Friends of the School.

On behalf of the children and staff I would like to thank our school community for the support our children have achieved over the past year. Our Board of Trustees provide visionary governance; our FOTS team have organised very successful fundraising options, school and social events; parents, whanau and caregivers help in many ways – during EOTC, sporting and cultural events, and within our school; and our local businesses and organisations have provided sponsorship, funding, or resources.  “It takes a village to raise a child,” (African Proverb). This is certainly true of our Cromwell community. We really value the support we have received, and look forward to continued community support next year.

 I would like to wish Edith Buxton, Ariana Daniel, Lisa McDonald and Luchia Hermens all the best for the future. Edith, who has resigned from her part-time position, will return as a relief teacher when she is able. Edith retires after a twenty one year association with Goldfields – Thanks Edith for your passion and expertise. We look forward to hearing of your adventures. You deserve some rest and relaxation after a very busy career. Ariana, Lisa and Luchia –  we are sorry that you are leaving us. Your new schools are fortunate to have such committed teachers to join their teams.

 The leavers assembly will be held on Thursday 15 December, 1:30pm, followed by afternoon tea for the year 6 children and their whanau.

 End of year reports will be sent home on Thursday 15 December.

 Term 1 2017: School commences on Monday 30 January. The school office is open for new enrolments, uniform purchases etc from Monday 23 January. 9 – 3pm.

 Ka pai to hararei – Have a good holiday. Nga mihi nui, Sharon
