Weekly Update

  • Congratulations Everyone!


    What a wonderful end to our term - sharing and celebrating the learning our students with their families.The huge pride that our children showed as they shared their creations, presentations, and performed on stage over the last two days has been very heartwarming. We hope you enjoyed what has been achieved. Photos will be scrolling in the foyer and a few are here to see. Huge thanks go out to our teachers and staff who have worked so hard to ensure the depth of learning and quality of the end products.



    Also a huge thanks goes to all the parents who have supported us in so many ways. The hours many of you have taken with making costumes, buying extra items, setting up the Taupiri Grotto and dismantling it afterwards, face painting, helping with the wood work creations, helping with the sound and lighting, painting props and backdrops, being taxis and generally ensuring that your children had all the support so that they could shine and achieve the best they could possibly be. Thank you all.


    NB- Unfortunately till we find another app we can no longer scroll a series of photos on our blog.

  • More property developments


    Over the holidays a firm appointed and paid by the Ministry of Education are hoping to start building a fence that will surround most of our school. During the term other property modifications for student safety and access will be installed by contractors.



    Enjoy a happy and safe holiday with your children.

    Please come along to see all of the creations and presentations or whatever parts you are most interested in. We hope you enjoy what you see and hear.

    Please remember:


    • You can purchase your 3 issued books by coming to the Cabin daily at 8am-9am, or 2pm-3pm.  

    Or

  • Term 4 - Hats Reminder & Uniform Update


    We are proudly a Sunsafe School and therefore require all children to wear our school uniform sunhat for Term 4 and Term 1.  Please ensure your child brings their hat to school from day one next term, or visit the school office if you need to purchase a new hat.  We have all sizes of the wide brim hat available, as well as size medium and large of the bucket hat.


    We’re pleased to inform you that our uniform cupboard is now well stocked and purchases can be made at any time.  Due to the long order period required by our supplier, we recommend you pop by the office early next term to organise any items your child will require for the start of 2017.  Due to the Christmas break and regular wait periods, we cannot guarantee any orders placed next term will arrive before next year.

  • Class placement 2017 - 2nd Notice


    As we head into Term 4 it is once again time for us to start planning our classroom environments for next year.


    When we organise classes in our school we look at each of our students’ academic and social needs and abilities. We use our cumulative teachers’ notes and check friendships with each child. We strive to achieve the best possible learning environments for all of our students and teachers. We actively decide to separate some students and join others to achieve the best possible learning and teaching outcomes. While providing supports we also work to build resilience and independence in our students so that they will be able to cope with change and the next steps in their educational journeys when they transition from us to other schools. Our aim with mixing students around is to develop a school environment where students know and are happy to work with many others students, to give opportunities to develop further friends and to have a break from others to improve concentration and learning.


    If you believe you have any special information that you feel our teachers may not be aware of, for example – the possibility of avoiding a competitive cousin in the same class, please let your class teacher know as they will add any relevant comments to the cumulative placement sheet.


    It is important, if you have any information to share that you let us know before Week 2 Term 4.  



    Happy and Safe Holiday!

  • News from Our Conservation Week Activities Well done everyone on such your effort last Friday to pack a Litterless lunch box.  There were over 150  children who received points for their whanau.  We will be having another Litterless box challenge next term, so watch this space.A big thank you to the wonderful Eco Warriors who helped to clean up Wiremu Tamihana Drive during one of their lunch times.  Take a look at the photos to see how much waste was collected.  All colouring competition entries that were handed back into the office were posted away to the Department of Conservation.  Well done for having a go and being organised with this competition!

  • Operation Christmas Child The school holidays would be a wonderful time to choose a small Christmas gift to go into our shoe boxes for the orphanages. Drop off is at the school library. See Mrs Kewish if you have any questions. Thank you to those of you that have dropped off gifts already.

  • Tamahere Hockey Thank you to all the coaches, managers and umpires who have made it possible for us to field seven hockey teams this year. Hockey has had a super season and lots of children have improved their hockey skills. Now that the season is at an end, all hockey uniforms need to be washed and returned to the office. Please can the coach/ manager ensure the gear bags have everything in them and return them to Ann Marie Copponi in Matai 11, thank you.

  • Cross Country The City Cluster Cross Country event was held on Friday. The weather was perfect for running but the recent rain meant that there was quite a bit of mud around the place. Lots of runners lost their shoes which looked funny as they crossed the finish line.
