Fabulous response to Parent Interviews

Chris Smith —

Our school is well served by its community, the 95% turnout to the Interviews held on Monday and Tuesday show support for the school in its purest form.

Out of the 320 children that currently attend Wakari we have held 303 Interviews. Thanks to you, the parents who have come in to discuss the mid-year report and progress of your children with our staff. I hope the reports, portfolios (middle and senior syndicate children) and subsequent discussions have given you a clear picture of how your child sits in the Wakari School setting.

Last Friday we held our farewell to the Taonga of Wakari that is Glenda Sargeant. The children were superb in their performance and thoughtful and generous in their words. I was especially proud of the respect shown towards Glenda by all that contributed to the afternoon. As Glenda has discussed with me, "it is not goodbye, it is hello in a different role". On behalf of us all Thanks for everything that you have done for Wakari School Sarge.

My thanks to the kids and staff for another term full of wonderful learning opportunities and support for our learners. I wish you all a happy holiday as we reach the midpoint of 2018.
