Creating a love of learning within a safe, caring, respectful, sustainable environment where individual excellence and diversity is valued.
This week’s message from the Principal:
Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whānau and Friends of our School,
Kāhui Puāwai are two performances into their end of year production. It is a really fun show and I am really proud of our senior students who have been performers, script writers, set builders, lighting and sound crew, back stage crew and marketers. The final show is tomorrow night at 6pm.
We are really lucky to have our two new teachers for next year able to come along this week and next for our New Entrant transition programme. Sarah Sutton will be teaching in R3 and is getting to know the children who will be in her class for the beginning of next year. Danielle Lane will be teaching in R8. She has been working with Kirsty Bragg with the older year 1 children in the morning while our New Entrant visitors are in the school. Both teachers have spent time getting to know teachers and children in classes over the remainder of the transition days.
Teachers are working hard to ensure end of year reports are completed and assessment data entered. The leadership team are also working with teachers on class placements for 2020. This is a complex job and we aim for placement with the right teacher, social and academic mix for children. We are not always able to fulfil parent requests and we need to use our professional judgement to make the final decisions on class placement.
End of year reports will go home with children next Thursday. Children will bring home school books and stationery by the end of next week. 2020 stationery lists will be included with the student reports. Children will spend time with their 2020 class and teacher on Thursday 12 December.
Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu,
Anna Harrison, Principal
