Newsletter 21st September 2018

Talofa lava, Malo e lelei, Kia Orana, Fakalafa lahi atu, Namaste, Ni sa bula vinaka, Konichiwa

This is the last newsletter from an action packed term three. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our school community. In particular those of you who have contributed by being on the Board of Trustees and parents who have supported our learning programmes, events and sports teams. Thanks also to all the parents and whanau who attended this term's maths and reading open mornings.

A highlight for me this term, was when the Year 6 students attended the 3-day outdoor education adventure at Camp Adair in the Hunua Ranges. Thanks to all the parents who gave up their precious time to support the 85 students who attended the camp. Thanks also to Ms Malcolm and the wonderful Year 6 teaching team who spent countless hours organising this adventure. I was very proud to observe the students’ fantastic attitudes throughout the three days.

Read Together/Read Together Plus

A huge thanks to all the parents who have attended our Read Together Programme and last night's Read Together plus.

A reminder that all children are required to wear our school hats while outside during term 4 as part of our sunsmart policy. Sunhats are now available from the school office for $12.00. Students can wear black leather sandals or black school shoes in term 4.
