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.
Looking forward to starting the new term off with a hiss and a roar this coming Monday. Now that our restrictions around masks and having you onsite have been lifted, it would be nice to have you come for a chat with any of us.
We’ve made it to the end of term! What a term it has been too with not being able to do things how we usually would. The shift to Orange overnight means school life appears to be moving in the way of ‘normal’ again. We can’t wait to get back to having school singing and assemblies again embracing our school value of whanaungatanga
Kia ora e te whānau, I write you this pānui whilst in isolation as Covid has finally affected my household. Luckily it hasn’t hit us too badly, but it has kept me at home this week if you had noticed that I wasn’t around. The powers of technology though with me still being able to keep up with what has been happening in the classrooms through Seesaw
l well at the end of another fantastic week! If you’ve been up to school lately you might have noticed the school is looking pretty sharp! This is massive thanks to the whānau who rocked up last weekend for our Beautification Day. I can’t thank you all enough for helping out.
It has been great to see so many kids back this week and I’m pleased that all our teaching staff are out of isolation now too. Gosh, it has taken its toll on our community and affected over half of our school! For those who are still unwell, Kia piki tō ora (get well soon).
We have a bunch of jobs that need doing and we’d love you to come along and give us a hand this Saturday 26th March, while catching up with some of the other members in our community.
Just wanted to commend you all on your compassion and empathy in getting through this current world climate, as it hasn’t been an easy time for a lot of families.
As another week comes to a close here, I want you to know how much I am loving being the Tumuaki/Principal of your kura. I feel fortunate to lead such a fantastic group of teachers and learners! Thank you all for your support and compassion you are showing through some challenging times across our country. It has made my transition smooth as.
