This week’s message from the Principal:

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

Last week was a really busy week around our school with Kapa Haka and athletics.  We really appreciate the fantastic parent support we had for both of these events.  The weather was a wee bit challenging on athletics day but most events were able to be run. Teachers are making sure the year groups that missed out on hurdles and who ran out of time for final jumps in the high jump competition will get that opportunity this week. A special athletics assembly will be held at 11.45am on Tuesday 12th November.

Our assemblies this term are run by each of our whānau groups led by the whānau leaders and other Year 6 students from the group.  These assemblies are completely student led. The whānau leaders work with the children in their group over the week to put the assembly together and get input from children right from Year 1.  The end result is a little random – but lots of fun.  Congratulations to Korimako for running assembly last week.  This week Tirairaka are in charge.  Please note assembly is at 9.45am on Friday due to the middle school hangi event in the afternoon. Assembly days and times may vary this term due to other activities on Fridays.  We will try to give parents as much notice as possible of assembly days and times.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is open every day this week from 8.30-9.30am and from 2.30-3.30pm.  If you are unable to make these times but would like to have a look through please talk to me or Dee Boyes and we will work something out as we are able to open by appointment until the end of after school club today and tomorrow.

Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu,

Anna Harrison, Principal
