Kia ora te Whānau,
I hope you’re all having a great week!
Below is a rundown of events coming up over the next six weeks. Term Four is always a busy time and there will keep you informed of any changes and movements etc.
Thanks to Willy Jephson and Daniel Craig for getting the pool up and running again for the summer. It has been emptied and water-blasted ready for filling and the aim is that by the end of next week it will be operational. The pool has a very good saltwater purifier and is a great asset for the school. Pool keys are available for purchase and if you would like one for the summer, please talk to Lisa.
Term Four in the pool is very much about building confidence for the summer with the focus in Term One all about water safety and skills.
Our sun smart policy states that all students must wear a brimmed sun hat in terms One and Four. We enforce this and your child will not be allowed outside without ahat. Please support the school in this important part of being a Kiwi in Summer.
We are again building up a huge collection of clothing. Please pop in and check for any missing items. Any clothing that is unclaimed for sometime is sent to be recycled.
Congratulations Waihakeke students on a fantastic assembly yesterday. I would like to acknowledge these students for the mahi they did around the naming of their learning space. I received letters from them all on this and the name they recommended was Waihakeke, which has profound local significance. So we now officially have Waihakeke as their name they own with pride. Awesome mahi Waihakeke!
I want to acknowledge the mahi around the organisation of the Country Fair on the 25th. This fair is about reconnecting as a school community and having fun together for a couple of hours on a Friday afternoon/evening. Please come and support this event as it celebrates us as a community.
FYI: We are in the process of organising a separate school day for pets and we will be in touch shortly around the organisation of this.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
