Kia ora te Whānau,
The last day of term is a great time to reflect on the successes at Dalefield School.The kapa haka performance by our tamariki yesterday was the icing on the cake.
I was immensely proud of all the students and staff who pulled together and showcased their amazing talent for you and the other Wairarapa schools - what a performance!
As one of the largest groups, they certainly had an impact.
“...The Dalefield haka was the loudest one today,” a parent was heard to say.Debriefing with the children today, they said things like:
You can find some photos here and some amazing shots from Debbie Hunt Photography here. Thank you Debbie.
Thank you to the following retiring Board members; Lucy Fisher, John Trischler, Shiree Robertson-Kingi and Rob Cunnington. Your support for our school is hugely appreciated by all.
We had our first new board meeting last Wednesday and Shaun Westhead was elected as our presiding member - congratulations Shaun. Daniel Craig, Claire Wells,Antony Oliver and Heather Wilson also join myself Jill Murray and Willy Jephson on the new Board. Our meetings will be monthly (on the last Wednesday of the month) andthe new board will be communicating with the community early next term.
School will be closed for a staff only day on Tuesday 25 October. This is the Tuesday following Labour Day.
I hope you get some great family time over the next two weeks and I look forward to seeing you all next term.
