Maungaraki School —

Week 3


See the attached poster for details of the up and coming class for empowering children to be their best.  Classes are local and run for 4 weeks starting on Sunday 11 November through to the 2 December from 4:00pm - 5:00pm.

 To find out more email tuiwellnesssolutions@gmail.com.


International research shows the 'summer slide' (where reading gains slip over the long summer holidays) is a major barrier to ongoing literacy achievement.

Tamariki who have access to books and learning experiences during the long holidays show less of a decrease (or even an improvement!) in their reading levels when they return to kura/school

The Big Read motivates tamariki to read books and participate in activities. Our friendly librarians are always available to provide support

Any child aged 0-12 years can sign up for the challenge at any of our eight Hutt City Libraries from 1 December.

The entire whānau can join in, this year we have The Little Read for ages 0-5 years; The Big Read for ages 5-12; and Explore, Read, Relax for rangatahi and adults.

It’s a great way to support your child’s reading and help them maintain the reading achievements they have made throughout the school year, even while on holiday!

More details at library.huttcity.govt.nz and at all Hutt City Libraries.
