Principal’s Message:

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

Congratulations to Therese McCombe-Rae who has been appointed Junior Syndicate Leader for Terms 1 and 2 next year.

This year, I have been excluded from all rehearsals of  the end of year production (surprise factor),  Last night, I  saw the Extravaganza for the first time.  I felt very proud of our children, and our staff for the work that has gone into the production, snapshots of special moments over the years I have been at Goldfields. I will value this production for the memories it evoked and I will remember with fondness everyone’s performance, especially the year 6 stars, many of whom had several different roles during the night. Thanks Anna for directing this year’s production; Linda and Jac for their contributions; all the teachers, teacher aides and children for the hours of rehearsal and effort that have gone into each performance; and the parents who have helped with makeup and costumes. I am looking forward to the next two nights.

The year 6 prizegiving will be held on Thursday 14th December, 1:30pm in the hall. Parents are invited to attend.

School closes at 1pm on Friday 15 December. Children can go home at 12:30pm with parent’s consent. Please let class teachers know if you will be collecting children at 12:30pm, or you would like them to walk home at 12:30pm.   Buses will run at 1 o’clock.  Term 1, 2018 starts on Wednesday 31 January.


Ka pai to wiki. Have a safe week. Nga mihi nui, Sharon.
