Kia ora koutou, I trust everyone is staying warm this stunning, but very frosty, week. This cold snap is a perfect reminder that we have wind proof jackets, shoes and socks available from KidsCan, students can take these home and keep them. We also have a selection of uniform shirts and jumpers that can be borrowed if washing has not dried. Students can let the office know if they need to borrow something for the day.
There is still a wide variety of donated clothing available (collected by our whanau Roopu), if you need or know of any other families that would appreciate extra clothing let us know at school.
Last week was our celebration assembly. Thanks for all the hard work that room 4 and 2 put into running the assembly. I would like to add to the list of things we celebrated; We had an awesome Maths Week, thanks to Mrs Laing and all the helpers from room 4. Congratulations to all the students that won treats for your amazing math minds.
The school has been fitness mad thanks to the home play challenge that Project Energize has organised. A huge thank you to our student leaders that have been helping out run fitness stations over the last couple of week.
Our library has had a rearrange and revamp, making more useable space in our hall and giving us the feeling of a real library! Well done Thom and Josh M for all your hard work.
We have rolled out the Chromebooks into classes, some students are taking them home to continue using them as a learning tool after school. There is an amazing buzz of excitement in learning and work output as our students get more and more proficient using their new devices.
There are so many amazing things happening throughout the school that enrich the learning journey, check out the photos of below of room 7 art (top), followed by five pictures from room 5 and last but not least a room 7 picture, what a great place for our future leaders to learn and grow!
A friendly reminder that full or ongoing partial payments for the Chromebooks is expected this term. If payment plans have not been arranged with the office by next week, Chromebooks will be put back into storage until we are satisfied that financial obligations are being met.
Kind Regards,Zac TaylorPrincipal
