What a fantastic day we had yesterday for our school Cross Country and Fun Run. So much wairua (resilience) was on display and I was really proud of everyone’s involvement! The vibe, the community support and the whānau involvement further showcased our school value of whanaungatanga.
Wow what a change in weather since the last time I wrote to you all. We have been hit with plenty of rain out here meaning that our kids haven’t always been able to get outside during break times. But they breed them tough in the country right? So as I have communicated to you, we encourage ‘Rainy Day Play’ as long as kids have a change of clothes and a waterproof jacket, so they aren’t in wet clothes for the rest of the day.
Gosh what a beautiful week weather wise we have had up here. It’s like Turitea has its own little eco-climate! Perfect weather for our training for Cross Country coming up in Week 4. The kids train Monday, Wednesday and Friday and it is great to see them pushing themselves and improving their fitness.
Hoping this finds you all doing very well. This is your final friendly reminder that school closes at 12.30pm this coming Wednesday 11th May for our Learning Conferences. We are looking forward to having you back on site as they are a great way to reconnect with your child’s kaiako and set some goals/outcomes for the rest of the term.
