Kia ora Dalefield Whānau,
It’s hard to believe we’re in the last week of term already. We hope you all get some family time over the break.
On Friday, eight of our students went to Kuranui College and took part in a South Wairarapa Kāhui Ako Model UN Day. This was a wonderful experience for students from all over South Wairarapa and the session was set up as an official UN GeneralAssembly, and as you can see below it was all very formal:
Official Welcome in Auditorium, Kuranui College9.15am Start of Country statements
Session 1: remit, clauses 1 and 2
Session 2: Remit 2, clauses 1 and 21
Guest speaker: Raihānia Tipoki
Session 3- Remit 3, clauses 1 and 2
Closing statements, certificates,
Cody: “...I really liked the voting aspect of the general assembly. I was very nervousdoing my speech so I just concentrated on it, holding the microphone for security...”
Thomas: I “...I was impressed how we were addressed as delegates and liked the fact thatwe were given a template for our remits. That was very helpful to show us how they were done...”
Well done everyone.
At the end of the term we will be saying good bye to our wonderful teacher aide, Jill. She has been with us for two years and over this time has had a huge impact. We will miss Jill’s energy and expertise, but she leaves knowing that she has made a real difference at Dalefield School.
Thank you Jill, you have our very best wishes.
The sandpits are amazing Andrew. A huge thank you from all of us and it’s great to have the first part of our playground reinstatement underway.
On the first day back next term, all whānau will be able to enter the school along the new promenade - now that will be something to look forward to!
Ngā mihi nui,
