This week’s message from the Principal:

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

We have had a busy end to the term with the winter sports exchange with Cromwell Primary held on Monday.  The overall result from the sports was a draw and the trophy will be shared. Goldfields also claimed the coveted fair play trophy.  Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend to support our children and to coach and manage teams – your support is essential to us providing these opportunities.

Our chess team competed at the regional tournament in Queenstown on Tuesday and gained second place – this is a remarkable effort as our very young team compete against students up to Y8.

Check out the fabulous huts in our grounds that R13 made, along with some fabulous community support, as part of their inquiry. The huts use a range of materials and were designed and built by the students. They are a popular spot for our younger students who are taking the opportunity to play and explore in them at break times.

The date for 3-way conferences with parents, students and teachers has been pulled forward to week 1 of next term Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 July.  Details of how to book these can be found later in this news letter and will be emailed to the news letter group.

Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu,

Anna Harrison
