Kia ora koutou!

Welcome back to 2020 and another great year ahead for our awesome school.

Have you booked your Korero Mai (Meet the Learner) Conference yet?

These are all set to go for the 28th/29th January 2020. You will need to book a 20 minute slot for your child/ren on either day. The time slots are at 11.30am-7.30pm on Tuesday 28th January and 9-5pm on the Wednesday 29th January 2020. Go to www.schoolinterviews.co.nz and the code is 228us to book.

These are taken as school days and attendance at a conference is compulsory for all enrolled students but you only attend for the time of your interview.

Normal classes start for everyone on Thursday 30th January @ 8:55am.

As part of the conference we expect your input. We have a genuine interest in what you have to say. The role of the teacher is to listen to you and your child.

Here are some question prompts for you (parents and whānau) to think about in relation to your child and the year ahead at RSS:

  1. What is the most important thing for you to talk about today?
  2. And what else?
  3. Tell us more about why this is important?
  4. What are your expectations of us (teachers)?
  5. What are your expectations of your child?

Don’t forget too, every child needs to bring along 3 artefacts (items) that are important to them that will help the teacher learn more about your child and their interests and passions. For example; favourite toy, book, movie or game; photo, trophy, sport, hobby etc – there is no right or wrong here).

If you have any questions or need some help just get in touch with your child’s teacher or give us a call next week. There will be plenty of staff around on Monday.
