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.
Getting in one day early everyone since this is the last reminder that school is closed for instruction tomorrow on Friday 4th March as it is a Teacher Only Day.
Gosh, the weeks are flying by now as we are fully back into the swing of school again. Another juicy one here whānau with lots of things happening, so please take the time to read everything happening over the coming weeks.
