Greetings everyone and a special welcome to those new to Havelock North Primary for the year 2014. I hope you have all had a fun filled family time during the summer break.
2014 is a busy year for Havelock North Primary. We have started three blended learning classrooms. Plans are in place for the main block to be upgraded some time during the latter part of this year.
We welcome Mrs Jo Burns who is teaching in Room 1 and Mrs Michelle Waldron who is relieving for Fiona McNeill. Fiona has been appointed as relieving principal at Kereru School.
Our school environment is looking fantastic with all the hard work done by our ground staff of Robin Gray and Peter Newton who worked tirelessly over the holidays to keep the grounds in park like condition.
Our school year commenced on February 3rd with all children returning to a full and rich year, with options including sport, music and drama options along with a busy classroom programme. Information on school happenings will come to you via class blogs and newsletters, team newsletters and the Tuesday Times. Year 5 and Year 6 camps will occur in the first term, with information about these camps sent home soon.
In 2014 importance is being placed on our strategic goals of maintaining high academic achievement, developing well rounded individuals and developing optimum learning environments which will ensure every child to achieve at their maximum potential.
We are looking forward to working with both you and your child on their learning journey this year. If you would like to view our school, please feel free to contact us as we welcome the opportunity to show you around.
