It is incredible how fast another term has flown by! However, a lot of learning and progress has been made. When we reflect back to the start of the Term with our ANZAC assembly in Week 1 we know a lot has been achieved.
Student Learning Conferences
Our Year 4 - 6 students learning journeys will be shared with you in a new report that will be sent home in Week 1 next term followed by Student Learning Conferences (Parent Teacher Interviews) on Wednesday 29th andThursday 30th July - Week 2. This year all learning conferences will be 15 minute long and students are expected to attend. Maungatautari Syndicate students will be allowed to go home for the afternoon of Wednesday 29th July to allow the extra time needed to fit in the longer conferences. The online booking system through School Interviews will open in the next week and you will receive an email with the login details.
Our Year 0-3 students will, from next term, be getting a new look report on their anniversary of starting School (12, 24 and 36 months) to show where they are at in relation to the National Standards, as well as other learning areas and the Key Competencies. At this time parents and students will have their Student Learning Conferences spread across the year. All of our Year 0-3 students will also be getting a Mid Anniversary - Progress Report at 6, 18 and 30 months at School, where parents may have a learning conference if they would like one. While we are transitioning into this new system, we may need to catch up with some parents to ensure all bases are covered. Please check with your class teacher if you are unsure where your child is at currently. I’m sure you will be contacted as the year progresses, but don’t expect to be part of the Week 2 Student Learning Conferences next Term.
In Week 3 of next term - Thursday 6th August we will be launching the new look uniform for all parents to see. We will also be having a Cyber Safety section sharing tricks and tips to help support our parents with how to keep your children safe in our cyber world.
Our new uniform is looking amazing - bold, stylish, easy to wash and great to play in but we are having a few discussions around the shoes.
What do you think? Do we have compulsory black shoes or individual choice? Please help us out with your views on this issue by clicking this one question - 20 seconds max!Please have your say!
We have asked the District Council to include a Swimming Pool into the Tamahere Recreational Reserve development but have been told that this is not on the plans. As you will all know, our own pool is inadequate for our growing needs and our very old pool is starting to cost us a lot each year as we try to keep it working. At present we are trying to locate a mystery leak.
The Board of Trustees have approved Camille Stranks to lead a committee into investigating pool options for our school and to achieve funding for it. We are all very excited and classes have been preparing video’s and writing letters of support to get our new pool happening.
Mrs May in Titoki 6 with her Year 0 and 1 students braved the cold to put their video clip together. Thank you Mrs May!
We held a lockdown practice yesterday as part of our Keeping Ourselves Safe learning, as well as for our Health and Safety Requirements. It was a great opportunity for us to improve our systems to account for every child and adult on site and what location they are in.
If this was ever to happen, students who are away from their classes are to move quickly to the nearest room and be safe. This time we had nearly 70 students in Nikau 1 as senior students were in the area looking after our Oak tree seedlings.
Thanks to one of our school sponsors the OSHBOX who have sponsored the school for the past year. The OSHBOX have recently been working with the school to ensure all Health and Safety policies and procedures are in the line with the revised legislation. Their contribution has been invaluable and has saved the school thousands of dollars in Board training, staff training and documentation updates. If your company is in need of a Health and Safety consultant we recommend their services to you.
