This week’s message from the Principal:

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

Teachers are busy preparing mid-year progress reports to be sent home next Friday 29 June.  We have changed our report format for this round of reporting.  We have taken a fresh look at providing concise information, an indication of progress and achievement, next steps for learning; and have included our C.A.R.E values and integrated inquiry.  The mid-year report is a quick snapshot that is backed up by our conversations at parent, teacher conferences in Week 2 of next term.  We will be seeking your feedback on the new format.  This will help us in designing our end of year report.

We have two year 3&4 and two Y5&6 mixed rippa rugby teams competing at the Central Otago tournament tomorrow.  Joe Miller and Linda Forbes have had the teams training at lunchtimes over the term and will attend the event with them along with some great parents who will help with coaching and managing teams on the day.  We wish them all the best.

There are some major design and build projects going on around the school as children take their ideas further in the integrated inquiry into what houses will be like in the future.  I am looking forward to the WOW assemblies over the next three Fridays to get a glimpse of what they have been up to.

Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu,

Anna Harrison
