This week’s message from the Principal:

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

Apologies for the very late newsletter – Week 11 just got away on me a little bit – so I am catching up on a wee bit of work with no distractions this morning.

It has been a busy term with lots of interesting and engaging activities for our students.  Highlights were definitely camps and EOTC weeks.

Thank you for making time to come and chat with teachers and set learning goals that will help us to individualise our programmes for Term 2.  Teachers really relish the opportunity to connect with parents and for children to share their successes and challenges at school so far this year.

It was great to be able to celebrate children who make excellent choices in the playground through our Golden Ticket winners pool party on Friday.  Linda Forbes took a fabulous bunch of children for a bit of fun.

A really important event for us next term is the Board of Trustees election that is being held on June 7th.  Have you considered standing for the board?  Check out the BOT page on our website for our governance manual and information about board elections.  Our next meeting is on Monday 13 May, 7.30pm in the staffroom.  Parents and interested members of the community are welcome to attend.

Thank you to everyone who made a donation to Gumboot Friday.  We raised $254 for this cause.

Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu
