Kia Ora e te whānau,

We all have our fingers and toes crossed for fine weather for the athletic sports on Monday.  The tamariki are all so excited to be going.  Let’s all hope we get to go. Please click on this link to reread relevant information –Athletic’s Info

PNINS Visit:

Please remember that the tamariki enrolled at PNINS will be visiting there on the 19th of November from 9.30am until 11.30am.  Parents are required to take their children  and please let your child’s teacher know that they are going.

Ross Intermediate Visit:

The visit for tamariki enrolled at Ross Intermediate will also take place on the 19th of November but the children will be travelling there by bus leaving school at 12.45pm and returning by three.

Class placements:

Please remember that if you wish to give your opinion regarding the placement of your child/ren  next year we require that information by  the end of next week. (22nd  November). There is a google form you can find here on a posting from November 9th.

Values Wheel:

The Values Wheel is our local curriculum. All of our kaupapa, learning, behaviour and student well being falls out of it. It is the accumulation of the teacher lead innovation project from 2015 and 2016, MST, vision and values and our charter.  You will be familiar with our values as they are displayed around the school and they have been unpacked in previous leadership pānui.

We would like to gather parent voice on the 4th of December from 3.30pm until 5.30pm  in the staffroom. Refreshments will be served. Following that initial consultation the values wheel will be available outside for ideas being added to it on the 11th and 12th of December at the graduation and the final assembly.

Special Award:

We are very proud to announce that ex-pupil Camden Woodroofe was successful in his application to the New Zealand School of Dance as an associate in ballet.

Final Reminders:

-Please encourage your children to leave their toys at home.

-Your child would have received ‘Raffle for a Ride’ tickets on Friday. Please check their bag and book bag for these.  This is such an exciting community day for everybody.

Have a wonderful weekend with your whānau.
