A reminder that School and Kindergarten will be closed on Tuesday - the day after the Queens birthday public holiday.
Our school calendar has three of these days scheduled into the year - there are a further two in September.
Last year we ended up cancelling two of our staff development days because they were scheduled either during the August lockdown or in Term 4 when we felt there had been enough disruptions.
This day is a valuable day for us as staff to participate in professional learning together.
On the Staff Development Day this term we will be focusing on three main areas - extending our knowledge and use of local purakau, developing our pedagogical understanding of designing and delivering Main lessons, and further developing our understanding and application of Waldorf teaching pedagogies and methodologies.
