Kia ora koutou. Hello everyone.
Whole School Assembly tomorrow Friday 13th March at 2pm
Matariki (Team 1) will be leading our whole school assembly on Friday 13th March at 2:00pm in the school hall. You are all welcome to come along. Please note: if you park in the drop off zone for assembly then please move your car by 3:00pm the end of the school day. The drop off zone is then a no parking area.
Scholastic Book Orders
The last day to place an order from issue 2 is Tuesday 17th March.
Drop off zone closing in the afternoons
The drop off zone has not improved. In order to give parents and caregivers time to make other plans it will close in the afternoons on Friday 20th March instead of Monday 16th March until further notice. Gates will be closed and there will be no staff supervising children at 3pm. If you are in the drop off zone when gates close in the afternoon please be aware you will not be able to leave until 3:15pm. Children will not be allowed to stand unsupervised in the drop off zone. We are willing to keep it open before school as long as it is used properly.
Please use next week to make a plan of what you will do instead of using the drop off zone.
Things to consider are:
How much time you will need to park and walk in to school to collect your child?
Where you will meet your child, either outside the classroom or if they going to walk by themselves have you told them meet you at a pre-arranged place? Have you have practiced having them walk to that place? You can practice parking and walking into school next Wednesday on Walk to School day – see the Travelwise notice below.
Go through what your children will do if you are not there or late.
Please be lawful and considerate of our neighbours with your parking.
