We are enjoying a special celebration day today to celebrate the Black Caps achieving the Final of the World Cup Cricket 2015. What an outstanding achievement! It is also to show our pride in being New Zealanders and to wish the team well for the final on Sunday. It is great to see so many children dressed for the occasion even with such short notice - thank you!
We have 3 mini tournaments going today - each Syndicate will be involved in playing cricket. Mr Wickens has mown 5 cricket pitches on the back field which have been named after our New Zealand pitches - Eden Park, Seddon Park etc. The School Council have organised the event and will be selling ice blocks at lunch time to add to the festivity of the occasion.
We realise that many children may be awake very late for the televised final and although we can’t start late due to so many parents needing to get to work, students who have been up late may have a sleep in. Please don’t rush them if you have all been up enjoying the Cricket. Let them sleep. Rather than everyone dribbling in during the morning we are happy to have three starts to the day on Monday; 8:30 am, 10:15 -10:30 am and 12:15 - 1pm. If your child/ren are arriving after 8:30am, please just let us know with a phone message, email, web page response or text to 022 140 3689 what time your child will be arriving at school and sign them in at the office when they arrive.
Lets hope the rain stays away and doesn't dampen our Annual Golf fundraiser tomorrow. Thanks once again to the PTA Committee, led by Howard Baker, who has been working so hard to make this event another outstanding success. We really appreciate all your efforts to make this event fun yet fruitful!
A parent has expressed interest in having the facility of paid Before School Care available at our School. The Board are keen to find out how many of our families may be interested in using such a service to see if it is worthwhile organising staff etc. Please fill in the instant 1 minute survey to help us with data.

Our conferences are in full swing with a full night last evening and more after school today. Teachers and students really value this time to connect and discuss individual learning pathways on a one to one basis. Our senior students are leading their conferences - focusing on their own goals and personal learning journey. Pirongia Syndicate students will also be doing this at their mid-year conferences. Sharing of progress and achievement data is also involved. We hope you are also finding them worthwhile. Thank you for your attendance and support with these important conferences. Also a huge thanks to the PTA team who cooked up the most beautiful meal for our staff last evening; we could have been at a top restaurant!
