Creating a love of learning within a safe, caring, respectful, sustainable environment where individual excellence and diversity is valued.
Kia ora Parents, Whānau, Caregivers and Friends of the School.
The school ski day yesterday was a bit disappointing with the weather turning nasty on the mountain. The skiers did really well to persevere through their lessons and onto skiing in their groups – but the wind eventually meant that chair lifts were closed and the Goldfields kids needed to head back to school. Thank you to the parents who were able to go on this trip with the children it was great to have such positive support on a challenging day. Thanks also to Ariana, Luchia and Ruth who headed up the mountain as teachers on the trip.
This week our CARE focus shifts to Excellence. We celebrate excellence through our Assemblies and Newsletters and try to recognise excellence across a diverse range of skills including sporting, academic and cultural fields. Classes will be talking about aiming for excellence, setting goals and perseverance as part of this focus. Assembly awards for the next two weeks will be for excellence.
We have a large group of children who have earned a lunchtime outing to the swimming pool by cashing in their Golden tickets. We will be running two excursions because of the numbers and will take Year 1-3 children and Year 4-6 children separately. We will need parent support with transport and supervision. A certificate and permission slip will come home with children who are invited on this special outing.
There were some amazingly whacky hairdos around the school today – I imagine that the local shops will be all out of hair ties, hairspray and gel. Thank you to our community for getting behind this fundraiser. We raised just over $200 in donations. We have passed the money onto to ANZ bank to add to the daffodil day fundraising for the Cancer Society. All of the money raised locally stays in our local community.
Have a safe and happy week
