Term 2, Week 8

Kia Ora Whanau

Just a quick update for this week.  We have Parent/Teacher Interviews on Tuesday 28th June from 3.30-7.00. It would be fantastic to see as many Parents as possible there to discuss your child's learning!!

Jade wrote a fantastic letter to say Thank you to Mainfreight last week. Shadae is learning to remember all the 7 sisters of Matariki, she is doing some lovely Mahi to portray this.

Shadae got a Deputy Principal's  sticker from Mrs Smith.

Jade was very proud of his Thank you letter to Mainfreight

I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday night for a lovely catch up!!!

Term 2, Week 6

We have had an action packed  week with A visit from Constable Rob, children being creative at lunchtime - since we have had so much rain and  creativity thriving in the playdough area.

I hope everyone is keeping up the daily reading log over the weekend. The children get so excited when they get a sticker for every night they have read in a row!!!

Please ensure to keep checking for Nits they are out again and to make sure the children have a warm jumper at school as the weather is getting cold and chilly.  Keep warm.
