Haere mai, welcome back in Term 4. It's going to be a busy one. It won’t be long before we’re putting up Christmas decorations. Children are enjoying their Athletics Day albeit in cooler conditions!
DO YOU WANT TO BE PART OF A GREAT TEAM?
The Board Secretary role may be just right for you!
This is a paid position. Our current secretary is giving up this role which she has done so well. Thanks Anna Kibblewhite, we appreciate all your work!
Our meetings are held just twice per term from 6:30pm-8:00pm approximately. Some are Zoom meetings.
We have drinks and nibbles at our meetings and they are held in a relatively relaxed manner alongside also making serious decisions for the benefit of our lovely school!
The secretary gets us all ready for the meeting by sending out the agenda and making sure the minutes have been typed up. All our information is shared electronically. If you want to find out more about the role, please reply to any of the following emails.
CLASS COMPOSITIONS FOR NEXT YEAR:
Our staff are starting to construct classes for 2023. The leaders and teachers spend a long time juggling ages, learning needs, genders, numbers and friendship groups to ensure that all classes are well balanced and that children have at least one friend (usually more) with them in their new class. To this end, we take children through the process of identifying friends who they work well with. You may wish to have this conversation with them also. Other than having happy children, our goal is to create the conditions for optimal learning and emotional safety in each class.
COMMUNITY CONSULTATION: HEALTH

COVID 19 UPDATE:
A timely update about Covid 19 and our guidelines at MNS.
If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 as a household or close contact you no longer need to isolate, but there are testing recommendations for household contacts, and it is recommended that you wear a mask when leaving home.
Household contacts should test daily for five days with a rapid antigen test (RAT) from the day the first person in your household receives a positive result for COVID-19. If any of your results are positive, then you must isolate for seven days and follow public health advice.
If anyone needs RAT tests we have some available at the school office.
