The year continues to steam by at what feels an alarming rate. This term is one where winter sports kick in. The school organises the Hockey, Netball and Basketball, where as Rugby and Football are arranged through the local sports clubs and you need to make contact with the club of your choice.
I wish to say a big thank you to those parents managing or coaching our school teams. It is through your hard work, our children gain great opportunities outside the classroom, which may come to the fore later in life.
Later in the term we have our school learning conferences where your child, with the support of their teacher, shares their learning with you the parent or caregiver. You will be given a written report soon after the conference giving you ways in which you can also support their learning at home.
This term we will continue with our self- review on topics such as Bible in Schools, and our student leadership programme. During the term we will have Mrs Hastings and Mrs Te Whaiti take maternity leave and at the end of the term we will farewell Mrs Wong as she starts her retirement.
Have a great term and we look forward to seeing you around the school.
