Kia ora koutou
We have had a very busy couple of weeks with our ERO visit and The Life Education bus visiting. This won’t slow down next week as we have students participating in a Rippa Rugby Tournament at Card Reserve and a team of hockey players going to Clareville to represent us at the South Wairarapa Hockey Tournament. We wish them the very best of luck and know they will represent us well.
Our ERO visit was a positive experience for us all and we are happy with the feedback we were given. We will know the outcome in a couple of weeks when we are sent the draft report and we will let you know the results as soon as that happens.
All our classes have just completed the Kia Kaha programme with Constable Keely, which focused on your children learning how to keep themselves safe and make good choices. Out of that we had a great rap and skit put on by the students looking at bullying. The rap will be a part of the Livewires Radio show to be recorded on Monday. Following up on that we had many of those messages reinforced by the Life Education bus so we hope to see our students putting those lessons into action both at school and out in the community.
Just a friendly reminder! Student Led Conferences are on Wednesday 21 September starting at 3.30pm. Please ring Tara and make an appointment. This is an opportunity for your child to show you exactly what they are learning in the classroom and for you to ask some questions about their work. It was great to see so many of you support your children at last years’ conferences and we look forward to seeing you again this year.
Please make a note of the dates below as next term is filling up quickly. We hope you all have a happy and safe break. See you back at school on Monday 10 October.
