Kia ora whānau,
Our last day of Term 2! It seems to be going faster and faster every term. Thanks for all of your support this term while we have navigated our way through finding a new Principal. We are excited to welcome Richard next term and even more excited for things to be a bit more settled! A special shout-out to my awesome Room 3 kids, who have coped with numerous teachers each week, last minute changes of plan and me disappearing from class at random times to sort out Principal things. Kids, you are incredible!
We’d like to also thank Alison, Jess and Jocelyn who have been instrumental in managing our workloads this term. Alison teaches all of Room 2 and 3 on a Friday, Jocelyn teaches in Room 3 on a Thursday and Jess manages the Room 1 kids on a Friday. Thank you for helping to teach our children this term!
On Monday 25th July, we will welcome Richard with a mihi whakatau. This will take place at the front of the school (weather dependent) at 9am. Following this, we will have a cup of tea/coffee in the staffroom before our school day officially starts. Feel free to come and join us in welcoming Richard to our school and community!
Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve started noticing some non-uniform items being worn to school. Just a quick reminder about our uniform expectations; students must wear our navy blue polo top, navy blue pants or shorts and a navy blue school jersey. Any shoes or socks are fine, as well as any jacket. Please make sure everything is clearly named. Our navy blue polo top is available to be purchased from NZ Uniforms. The only jewellery permitted are plain hoops or studs, a watch and any special necklace (e.g. pounamu). Please ensure that your child/children have the correct uniform ready for next term.
Congratulations to the children who represented us at the Netball tournament last week and Wellington Regional Cross Country this week! You should be very proud of your progress and results in these competitions.
Please remember to let us know if the children contract COVID over the holidays. We are required to keep a record of how much of our school has had COVID this year. Hopefully next term goes a lot smoother in terms of sickness for everyone!
Stay warm, have a lovely two weeks with your children and we will see you all on Monday 25th July, ready for Term 3!
