• Week 1 Term 4 2014

    Welcome Back Everyone! We hope you had a fun, relaxing and happy holiday. We are thoroughly enjoying having your refreshed, and eager to learn, students back with us for Term 4.

    Welcome to Mrs Janet Glenn and here new students who have now settled into Harakeke 18, our latest New Entrant Class for the year. This class has started with 8 students but will increase during the term.

    We have enrolled 15 new students this week and apart form our 5 year olds, many have come from overseas and the South Island. Lily G, Milly H, Max H, Zarah H, Taira L, Finn L, Jamie L, Will L, Tobias M, Ellie M, Lily M, Oscar N, Hayley S, Daniel W, and Sophia W.  Welcome to you all, we hope you and your families have a very happy and successful time as part of our School.

    Special Welcome also to Tony a Royal New Zealand Federation of the Blind (RNZFB) - Guide Dog Puppy - a black labrador of 14 months old. Tony is staying with me for the next 3 - 4  months due to his initial puppy walker being unable to continue his care. After his stay with us and getting more socialisation and developing better guiding skills he will head to Auckland for his intensive training. A very special dog who has a very special calling in life. Tony has settled in well and our students have been amazing. When Tony is wearing his red coat he is ‘working’ and we just try to ignore him and not touch him or call his name so he can concentrate on being good and doing what he will need to do to help guide a blind person. 

    Ag Day Tomorrow - This is always a very special day in our school calendar and a busy one for parents with the support required to transport; animals, flowers, vases etc. and encourage your children with their activities.  Thank you for your support. We should be in for a lovely day - weather wise. All Ag Day information can be found in the email sent out today and click this link for our days outline.  

    Sun Safe Term - Term 4 is a Sun Safe Term - all students need to be wearing their hats every day. Also a reminder that all students need to be wearing T shirts and tops that cover their shoulders. Thank you for the support.  

    We will share our Curriculum learning journey next week after everyone has got through Ag Day.

    Board of Trustee Elections - This Term we are holding the Mid-Term Board Election. All families should be getting nomination forms sent to your homes over the next few days. Our School runs on the system of split elections so that we always have some experienced members of the Board. It does however mean we have very regular Board Elections. This election we have 3 positions available. If you are interested in becoming a board member please feel free to discuss this with myself or any member of the current Board of Trustees.
