This week we had been planning to confirm our class placements and advise you as to who your child’s teachers are for 2020.
However…despite the best laid plans, we are unable to do so as we are facing significant roll growth. In the last two weeks alone, our projected day #1 opening roll has increased by over 25 students with a surge of new enrolments (across all year levels).
Because we are likely to continue to take many more in-zone enrolments between now and the 3rd February, we have no option but to delay working out class placements until much nearer the start of the 2020 school year. We will of course communicate this to you before the first day of 2020, and just wanted to make families aware now.
Here are our projected timeframes for communication (please note the dates):
- Tuesday 28th January: Classroom placements confirmed by teachers at our Teacher Only Day
- Tuesday 28th January (afternoon/evening): Parents/students find out whānau teacher and team placement via email. This will also include information about stationery orders (through OfficeMax online) and optional BYOD info for Kāhu students.
- Thursday 30th January 1-3pm: Optional Meet the Teacher drop-in session. This will be held at school and our teachers will be on site to enable you and your child to call in and say "hi".
- Monday 3rd February: First day of school 2020. Our teachers will all place a huge focus on developing relationships at the start of the year.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. As you will appreciate, we wish we had a crystal ball!
