We were very pleased to hear the announcement today that there will be no change to the school holidays. The disruption that would have caused for our community was a real concern for us. We have children really nicely settled back into school and know that these three weeks of face to face learning are really important for getting our tamariki back into the routines of school and making progress.
It was great that the snow sports programme was back up and running today for our participants. Fingers crossed for fine Fridays for the rest of the term. Classes are taking the opportunity of slightly smaller numbers to do some interesting projects. It has been great seeing the buzz around the school.
Calendar Art was compiled and prepared to send away today. We will let you know when the pictures are uploaded and ready for you view and order. This is always a good fundraiser for our FOTS and a way to get simple, easy Christmas presents for family.
Please note that school photos that were scheduled during lockdown have now been re-booked for Monday 8 November. We are lucky that they were able to fit us in. Heritage photos will not have time to fit sibling/family photos in this year unfortunately.
