We enjoy showing visitors around our school.
We also would like to arrange pre-school visits for new entrant enrolments in particular-
We prefer to hold our pre-school visits as follows:
Visit 1 = 8.50- 10.30.a.m. (Tuesdays)
Aim: To learn about class routines, meet their teacher and classmates.
Visit 2 = 8.50 – 11.30.a.m. (Thursdays)- PLEASE bring some play lunch to this visit.
Aim: To consolidate visit 1 and to begin to learn a little about our school routines. e.g having kai at school, (10.50-11.00.a.m. playing in the playground, what happens when the bell rings. (11.20.a.m.)
We request that an adult is present with the child for both of these visits.
Kia Ora Tatou,
We are looking forward to Friday 14 May at 10.00.a.m. when our Kapa Haka Group perform at the Regional Competitions at Kia Aroha College in Clover Park.
The word is get there early for the performance. Our students are leaving 2 hours ahead of stage time to ensure our kura rumaki students are front and centre for our team's performance.
A reminder that our kura will be closed NEXT Friday 21 May for a Teacher Only Day, as our Teachers have Professional Development on the teaching of Mathematics.
