Newsletter No 37 – Wednesday 30th November 2016

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

 Welcome to week Eight.

Staff are busy analyzing data and writing reports as the year comes to a close.  These reports will be handed out on the 12th of December.  We do report around National Standards but often this is not a holistic picture of your child.  Please read the full comments that have been thoughtfully written in order to recognize how much your child has progressed and what their next steps should be.  I have also enclosed in this newsletter the teachers names and classrooms that they will be in for 2017.

Both Junior and Senior classrooms are preparing for the end of year prize giving.  For the first time the Junior School will be having their prize giving in the College hall as it has become such a popular event that we need more space.

In this newsletter there is a slip that needs to be filled out regarding pick up arrangements for both the 14th and the 15th prize giving.

As usual, please check the calendar of events for what is coming up.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Newsletter No 35 – Wednesday 16th November 2016

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

 Welcome to week Six.

Congratulations to the staff and parents who ran an excellent middle school camp.  I have heard very positive reports and acknowledge the amount of work that goes into organizing school camps.bp

Well done to the students who attended the Centralines technology challenge.  One group was placed second in the event where they needed to create a cart that could be carried and hold one of them in it.

Thank you to the Ms Horiana Newport for supporting me on Friday for the Boulevard Day and to our students that were little chefs.  Thank you also to Mrs Chant and Mrs Thompson who assisted with the cycle series event.  The event itself was really well run from the management of the course to the many prizes that students picked up.  Patrick Gilby was placed first (with a lead of over a minute from the second place getter) in his race, Breanna Gilby was first in her event with Alice Thompson right behind her.  Grace Thompson won her event.  Well done athletes.I was delighted to go to the A&P show and see Terrace students dancing.  There was Samantha Booth performing in the highland dancing and Bria MacDonald and Majestic Watson-Hayes (coming to our school next year) also performing in Highland dancing.

Our school athletics are this Friday the 18th.  We will have an early lunch at 11:45 and then ring the bell at 12:40 in order to mark the role.  Then students will begin to get into their lines ready for athletics beginning at 1:00 pm.

Next week the senior school, including the year 6 students, will be starting “It’s all about me” programme.  This teaches students how to express their emotions and feelings in a positive way.  The year 7 and 8s will be undertaking a pubertal health unit starting the same week.

Fantastic to see the lovely art work that our students have created for their calendars.  We are able to send some late orders away this week but Friday is the cut-off date as we attempt to get them back before Christmas.

As usual, please check the calendar of events for what is coming up.

Have a lovely week.

Newsletter No 34 – Wednesday 9th November 2016

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

 Welcome to week Five.

Most of our events are nearly over.  We have the middle school camp to go (and it sounds fantastic) and then we can relax.

Next year is looking amazing already and a lot more calm.  There will be minimal camps and plenty of time to get organised.   We will have a normal cross-country event (the fun run will be held in 2018) so as to take the pressure off whānau and their pockets.

Congratulations must go to Mr Travis Cooper, Mr Te Ariki Miller and Mr Todd Ewing for winning permanent positions here at Terrace School.  We also extend congratulations to Ms Charlotte Verrell for winning the role of Deputy Principal beginning in 2017.

Cups are coming in well.  Testing of students is almost complete and we will be able to put names to those cups.  Details about prizegiving will be given closer to the time.  I can tell you though that due to the amazing turnout of parents to the Junior school prizegiving last year, we will be holding it at the High School so that everyone can fit in.

As usual, please check the calendar of events for what is coming up.

Have a lovely week.

Newsletter No 33 – Thursday 3rd November 2016

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

 Welcome to week four.

I can report that Te Aranga had a wonderful time in Rotorua and posted loads of photos on their facebook page.

AMPd was very successful and we managed to make $300 with the food purchased at the event and are waiting to get our two fifths share from entries at the door from Epic.

I understand the trivia evening back at school was also successful and all profits will be going toward their camp next week.

Boulevard day is on the 11th.  If there are parents out there prepared to man the BBQ for us (we have one volunteer) please contact the office.

The “cycle series” event will be held at the lime track at Russell Park.  We have the coffee people coming and still have lollies and drinks left over from AMPd.  We would also like to put on a sausage sizzle at the end.  There is a brand new bike going to the school that has the most entries thanks to Wayne Thompson and Central Suzuki.

Our Class and Portrait packs have arrived at school.  Please check that your child’s name is typed onto the pack.  These have been personalized and are necessary to get the order right.  Sibling envelopes can be picked up from the office.

As usual, please check the calendar of events for what is coming up.

Have a lovely week.
