End of Term 1 Newsletter from Primary

April 15th

Kia ora whanau!

First of all our primary school would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all of you who have supported us in one way or another this term. There has been a huge number of parents volunteering for swimming, mean green houses, taking transport for sport - and a whole lot more. We really appreciate the time and the support you have given to us and your children.

Kia Ora – Welcome to the Middle Years

Thanks to all the parents and caregivers who have taken time out to meet the teachers. As always it is great to put faces to names. Those who couldn't make it are still welcome to contact the school and make a time to meet your child's I-Time teacher. The I-Time teacher is your first port of call should you have any concerns or celebrations to pass on to us. Our aim is to be a family friendly school.

Underway – full swing!

Yes we are in full swing. Classes are well settled, learning is underway, and it seems that we have had a very settled start all round. It is fantastic that our young people are well prepared for their learning, and I appreciate parents and caregivers input into this to ensure all is well organised.

With the three learning blocks on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, students in Y7-13 can be very selective (and organised ahead of time) to bring only the learning resources (and their digital device) they need for each day. Simply put, they don’t need to lug all their books for all their learning programmes around each day – they ought to have only those resources that are needed for the day. Every student has a Learning Programme print out or can access it off KAMAR, so they can be well prepared for the next day’s learning.
