Senior Certificate Assembly 2018

On Thursday 1st November we celebrated the effort and achievements of our senior students with a certificate assembly. Merit and excellence certificates were awarded to students that have excelled throughout the year. Unfortunately we are unable to include these  in our Senior Prizegiving, due to the shear size and number of prizes. Below is a list of the awards and some photos.

We have also included a number of sporting achievements that deserve recognition also.

Congratulations to you all!

Exciting changes for our Middle School

exciting
Welcome to term 4. This term is traditionally very busy as we build on the learning programmes that have been established during the year - and get ready for next year. This is particularly so this year as we are looking at structuring the Middle Years slightly differently in 2019.
The majority of the classes will continue on with the curriculum work we have been doing over the last several years - refining and embedding the Middle Years profile. In addition a small group of teachers are keen to work collaboratively to explore even more deeply what a future-focused Middle Years curriculum might look like in practice. This is exciting and challenging work and we are inviting parents of students currently in years 6-8 to come to a meeting to hear more about what this "future focused pod" will involve. The idea is that whanau would apply to be part of this new model. We will be providing a number of opportunities for whanau to find out more about what will be involved. Our first meetings about this will be in the school library on Wednesday 24th October at 2.30 and again at 5pm and again on Thursday 25th at 5.30pm. We hope you will be able to make one of these times if you are interested in finding out more.

Hearing and Vision testing

Waikids

The Hearing and Vision testing for term 2 is scheduled for June 20th. Please find below information on the checks

Information Sheet on Vision and Hearing Checks in School

Vision Hearing Technicians from Community and Southern Rural Health will be visiting our school. The objective of the test is to identify previously undetected vision and hearing defects.
If any parents/caregivers do not want their child to be checked, or their child is currently under specialist care for a vision or hearing defect, they should let the school know.


Which children are routinely checked?

Children who have not completed vision and hearing checks as part of their B4 School Check
Children absent from previous visit, require retests or follow up
In special circumstances, parents, teachers or others may request a vision or hearing check
New immigrants
All Year 7 student’s vision only


What tests are carried out?


Ears
Audiometry (hearing test)
Tympanometry – middle ear function test (only carried out when hearing test is not within a normal range)


Eyes
Long distance vision tests – not a complete visual examination, but a simple screening test
NB All of these checks are non-invasive, safe and should cause no discomfort.


The Vision Hearing Technician will:
Notify parents of all test results
Enter results on Ministry of Education database (Enrol)
The Vision Hearing Technician will obtain personal details from the school ie; names, date of birth.
If the technician needs to contact parents or caregivers following the visit, addresses and phone numbers will also be required.
Our Service may share this information with other health professionals involved in the children’s care.
