Our condolences and deepest sympathies go out to all those effected by the events in Christchurch last week and to the Chapel Downs Muslim community. The impact of what happened on Friday will have wide reaching implications for a long time to come. As a school, we will be coming from the perspective of looking after our community and unity.
We are flying through term one and it's wonderful to see the classes all settled into their routines and all students loving their learning. Over the last few weeks the students have enjoyed learning about money through Captain Cashtastic from the ASB GetWise Money programme. Children discovered the value of coins and notes, and that they need to save, spend and share their money! They also thought about things they need and the things they might want to buy.
Thank you to the families who attended our Meet the Teacher evening. The teacher’s found it really worthwhile talking with you and learning more about your child/children. This is one way that we work together as a community to help your child’s learning and achievement. A huge thanks to Tip Top who kindly donated the ice blocks.
2019 School Leaders
Congratulations to the 2019 House Captains who all received their badges at our last school assembly. Year 6 candidates were nominated by their peers and then invited to apply for the role of House Captain. Here is a list of our 2019 House Captains.
Pop Up Museum
Last month the staff displayed their favourite hobbies with the students and created a Pop Up Museum in our hall to inspire curiosity. Children visited the museum with their class and the teachers loved the questions that children are asking them about the items that they contributed to the museum.
The senior school are going to hold their own pop up museum on the 4th and 5th of April.
