Message from the Principal

Jacqueline Wee —

Kia ora tātou

Our cross country practices continue and we’re looking forward to next Wednesday’s event at Ben Burn Park. It’s great to see children being outside and active.

We will be holding partnership hui from Monday 16 May through to Friday 27 May. The hui are an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s teacher to talk about how your child has settled into school, how they’re progressing and plans for the rest of the year. If you would prefer to have the hui via zoom or a phone call, please book a time and then email the teacher with your preference. If none of the times suit you, please email your child’s teacher and you can organise a time that does suit. Booking details have been sent to all whanau, please contact the Jacqueline if you are unsure how to book a time or did not receive the booking message, jwee@kns.school.nz.

The PTA are holding a working bee on Sunday 22 May, to help around the school with trimming, weeding, planting and much more, looking forward to a great turnout. There is a separate item in this newsletter with more details.

As always if you need any support or have any questions, please contact one of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT):
