Term 3 ends at 3pm on Friday 22nd September

Kia ora koutou.  Hello everyone.

Maths Curriculum open morning next Tuesday
On Tuesday 8th August we invite parents to come into classes between 9am and 10am and see maths in action. You can see how maths is taught in class and maths games and activities that support learning in maths will be available for parents to play with their child. Parents don’t have to stay the whole hour if they are not able to, this is an informal invitation to see maths in an everyday setting.

Parent Survey

The Board is in the process of reviewing the school’s Strategic Plan. They are seeking input from students, staff and the community and a survey for parents to complete is part of the process. The aim is to gather feedback about what the school is doing well, where changes and improvements need to be made and the direction the community wants the school to set for the next two years.
It is important that every family’s views are included, so we strongly encourage you take part, even if you do not complete all the questions.

The Board has contracted Jan Hill and Rowan Johanson of The Education Group to conduct the survey. All responses will be ANONYMOUS and the data will remain CONFIDENTIAL to The Education Group. The results will be summarised by the consultant and it is these that will be reported to the Board.

Early next week you will be sent a link to the survey from the school office. Please complete one survey per family by midday, Monday 21st August 2023. Note that although the link is sent through school all responses go directly to The Education Group.
