Newsletter #10 - Term 4 Week 3

Tēnā koutou, welcome to Term 4,  and our first newsletter of the term.

I would like to welcome our new entrants, who have started in Room 5 this term; Georgia Bell, Theordore Lamont and Enzo Marsh-McKenzie. We also have Ella-Rose Mitchell, Shiloh Ratana-Jones, Aaliyah Pompey-Tepu and Zoe Andrews having school visits before they start in the coming weeks.

 We also welcome new students and some new whānau, students Dikota and Hunter Ahradsen, Kiwa Tipu-Tuhou and Kahurangi Aranui-Munro.

As always we are looking forward to another term, filled with new learning and opportunities beyond the classroom.

Thank you to all those whānau who took the time to complete our Education Outside the Classroom survey.  That information has been considered in the planning of our camps for Year 6-8 in particular.

Finally I would like to acknowledge Jodie Penn who has stepped down from her role as Presiding Member of the BOT - we thank Jodie for what she has done for the school in this role.  

Stephanie Boerboom is the new Presiding Member until the end of this year.  The final board meeting of the year will be on Tuesday 12 December at 6pm in the staffroom.
