Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Terrace School is putting on a musical/production to celebrate Terrace School turning 60 years old.   Students are in the process of auditioning for singing parts and I have been privileged to listen to them.   We have a lot of talent I can assure you.  The production will be at Central Hawkes Bay College on the 23rd of September (the last day of term).  There will be a mid-day show in order for kindergartens and older people to attend.  After this there will be an evening show to cater to our parents.  It is a gold coin donation to attend and our main fundraiser will be the half time event where coffee/tea and baking will be served for $5:00 per person. Watch this space for more information.

We have shifted our venue for a baking fundraiser.  This Sunday (the 29th) we will be selling our baking (for netball uniforms) at the Otane market.  A notice has gone out to all netball players but if you feel you would like to contribute we would be very pleased to accept your baking either on Friday (all tightly wrapped or sealed) or Sunday morning if you make arrangements with the office.

See you on the side-line.

Mathematics

Making progress in mathematics is a school wide goal.  Each week I will put a junior and senior challenge in the newsletter.  Please solve these problems with your child then they can bring the answer back to school by Friday and be in the draw for a free lunch on Friday.

Te Awarangi Puketapu-Pene won the Junior maths quiz last week and receives a free lunch this week.

General maths quiz for all students

The Problem

On Monday, Sam, Sunny and Sylvia shared some lollies that their Mum had given them. Sunny got twice as many lollies as Sam. Sylvia got three times as many lollies as Sam.

Their mother gave them the same number of lollies each day up to (and including) Friday. If Sylvia got a total of 18 lollies on Tuesday and Wednesday, how many lollies did Sunny get for the whole five days?

How many lollies would Sam need to get on Saturday if he wanted to have 39 lollies altogether?

PARENT HELPERS

With the gym festival coming up and practices starting to take shape we are asking if there are any parents out there who would be able to spare some time in our school lunch hour which is 12:35- 1:10pm to help out. If this sounds like you could you please call the school office and leave your contact details.

SHARING BOOKS AT HOME WITH YOUR CHILD

How to Share Books.

Research shows that in most families it’s mum who does most of the reading with children, but we want dads to have the chance to enjoy reading with their children too.

If you speak other languages at home, you can read, sing, and tell stories with your child whatever language you feel most comfortable speaking.

Knowing when to stop can be just as important as finding the time to share a story in the first place.  Pay attention to your child’s reaction to the story, and stop if they have had enough for now or if they are not enjoying it this time.  You can always try again another time, and children’s attention spans increase as they grow older.

Librarians give great book advice and recommendations, and libraries have more books than anyone could ever own.

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CAMP.

On Tuesday and Wednesday last week I took four students (Cole, Xander, Cerys and Emma) to a two day Science and Technology Camp.  This involved trips to the Planetarium, Napier Boys High, Faraday Centre and Napier Intermediate School.  The students took part in a variety of experiments and technology challenges.  We all decided on our trip home on the last day that our brains were filled with new information.

A fantastic opportunity for these scientific brains.  Well done to all these students and thank you to Mrs Harris for supporting us in this venture.  Miss Lancaster.

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

What a fantastic turn out we had for our shared lunch, it was great to see whānau at the school and looking into the classrooms.shared lunch

What a shame the weather has been so cold today for our “Rippa Rugby”. Many people spent a lot of time organizing this event and then our amazing spell of weather came to an end.  Thanks to staff and parents for organizing teams and agreeing to coach.

I am looking for emergency help with fundraising.  Our Raiders netball team has been wearing a variety of netball clothing due to the fact that we have many girls playing and not enough uniforms.  We were informed that we would be disqualified if we could not get matching uniforms for our students.  Due to urgency I have had to order the dresses and they have come to $500.  I need some wonderful parents to whip up a baking frenzy that we can either raffle or sell (with a permit from the District Council) on Ruataniwha Street.  Once I have the bakers then I can pick dates to sell.  Please leave a message for me and I will contact you as soon as possible.

A group of aspiring scientists have participated in a workshop in Napier over the last two days.  Ms Lancaster has described the activities as inspiring and of course our students were a credit to us.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Making progress in mathematics is a school wide goal.  Each week I will put in a junior and senior challenge in the newsletter.  Please solve these problems with your child then they can bring the answer back to school by Friday and be in the draw for a free lunch the following Friday.

Legaxie Nuku Nuku and Reuben Carter have a free lunch this week for their maths problem solving.  Nobody won last week’s problem and so I will leave it in this week’s newsletter.

Junior maths challenge.

  1. Mrs Parore is hanging out her towels to dry. She puts two pegs on each towel. If she has 4 towels, how many pegs will she need?
  2. Mrs Parore sees that her peg box is running low. So she puts one peg on the corner of two towels. This way she only needs 3 pegs for 2 towels. How many pegs will she need for 4 towels now?
  3. Senior maths challenge.

The pizza place has three tables. The biggest one seats three times as many people as the smallest one. The middle sized table seats twice as many people as the smallest one.

On Tuesday night three-quarters of the seats were taken. Then twelve more people arrived. Unfortunately there were only enough seats for half of them.

How many people can sit at the smallest table?

SHARING BOOKS AT HOME WITH YOUR CHILD

How to Share Books.

Use the story to have a back-and-forth conversation with your child.  Talk about familiar activities and objects you see in the pictures or read about in the story.

 

When you talk to your child about what’s going on in a book, give them time to respond.  Try to ask questions that don’t require ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers.  Ask them how a character might be feeling.  Ask them to describe the characters or the situation.  Ask them what will happen next.

 

Yes, you can use funny voices! It’s a great way to make your child giggle.  And don’t be afraid to sing either.  They won’t care whether you sing in tune or whether you know the words!  Using a puppet to act out a story can help your child understand what’s going on and learn how to include pretending in their play.  Why not pick a character from your book and use the puppet to show what they are doing?

 

Make it fun! If you are having fun so will your child.

 

Try to make time to enjoy books every day.  You can share books anywhere, anytime and a bedtime story is a lovely way to end the day.  Make books a part of your daily routine.  The more that books are woven into children’s everyday lives, the easier it will get for you and the more normal it will be for them.

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

You may have heard, we had a small fire at the back of our caretakers shed that began in the rubbish trolley.   It gave the ladies taking netball a fright and they quickly jumped into action putting it out and ringing the fire brigade.  Thank you to those wonderful Mums.  There is some damage that we will have assessed and Ms Signal lost her beloved trolley.  We should feel blessed that it didn’t happened in the small hours of the morning, or we may have lost our junior block.

Remember that we have our shared lunch this Friday the 13th.   Remember that we prepare a cooked lunch on Fridays so please let us know early if you would like to order.  This week it is “pita pocket nachos” and each meal is $3.00.

We have extended the lunch hour so that you might be able to fit in in with yours.  The bell will ring at 12:00 and our shared lunchtime will finish at 1:30.  Please feel free to look in your child’s class as their work books will be available to view, you can catch up with their teacher and generally enjoy the time at Terrace School.  Board members will be present to have a chat about our upcoming elections as well.  They will be able to answer any questions and encourage you to get your nomination forms in (remember you can nominate yourself).

Good luck to all the students starting sports this week-end.  I will base myself mainly at the netball courts but am fully aware that we have hockey, soccer, rugby, mini ball and other winter sports underway.

Have a good week and I look forward to seeing you

SHARING BOOKS AT HOME WITH YOUR CHILD

How to Share Books.

Encourage your child to talk about the book you are reading together.  Sharing stories with your child doesn’t mean you have to read the words.  Point to the pictures and relate them to something your child knows. Encourage them to tell you the story by looking at the pictures.  One way to encourage more details is by asking “wh” questions. Who?, Where?, When?, Why?.

If you are reading the words, show them how to do it.  Run your fingers along the words as you are reading them.

Newsletter No 12 – Wednesday 4th May 2016

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Welcome back.

I would like to invite you all to come to school next Friday the 13th (love the date) to bring lunch and sit with your children.  The idea behind this is that all whānau feel included and welcome at school and Board members will be present to answer questions regarding the up-coming elections.  You might like to buy fish and chips or pack a picnic lunch to share with your children.  We would like to extend our lunch hour so that you might be able to fit it in in with yours.  The bell will ring at 12:00 and our shared lunchtime will finish at 1:30.  Please feel free to look in your child’s class, catch up with their teacher and generally enjoy the time at Terrace School.

You may be aware that many schools have had to close their swimming pools.  Sadly we are facing this danger too.  The running and up-keep of the pool is expensive, our changing shed is in a very poor state and really needs to be demolished.  Also with the new health and safety rules our fencing cannot keep children out over the week-ends which means our school is at risk of fines.  I have applied to a charity called “Save Our Pool” but as yet have had no response.  If you have any idea how you might be able to help (perhaps you have some timber for the shed, time on your hands or fencing skills) please contact me directly or Pauline our caretaker.  We would be very sad to lose this awesome resource.

On a positive note I would like to thank Centralines for topping our trees, chipping the wood and giving it back to us for our gardens.  I would also like to thank Mr Tony Birdsall for donating a large amount of compost to our vegetable garden.  The garden is used for planting vegetables that in turn go into the Friday healthy lunches.

I was delighted and proud to see so many Terrace School students at the Anzac parade in the holidays.   Thank you to the Mums and Dads that got up early to bring them.

As you are aware, our school wide goal is raising achievement in mathematics.  Next week we begin streaming maths classes to cater for all needs including extension of students.  I look forward to analysing our data at the end of the year.

Good luck to all the students starting sports this week-end.  I will base myself mainly at the netball courts but am fully aware that we have hockey, soccer, rugby, mini ball and other winter sports underway.

I will put another reminder in the newsletter next week, but I do look forward to catching up with you at the shared lunch on Friday the 13th.

 

Kathi Harris

Principal

Mathematics

Making progress in mathematics is a school wide goal.  Each week I will put in a junior and senior challenge in the newsletter.  Please solve these problems with your child then they can bring the answer back to school by Friday and be in the draw for a free lunch on Friday.

Junior maths challenge.

Emma had a $5 note. She exchanged it with her brother Sam for three coins. What were the three coins?

Senior maths challenge

The time is 3:00 pm.  What will the time be in 1,000 seconds?

SHARING BOOKS AT HOME WITH YOUR CHILD

How to Share Books.

Part 1 Each week will be more tips for parents.

Set aside some time.  Find somewhere quite without any distractions.  Turn off the TV, the radio and the computer.  Sit close together when sharing a book and encourage your child to hold the book themselves or turn the pages.

Ask your child to choose a book. Sharing books they have chosen shows you care what they think and that their opinion matters and then they are more likely to engage with the book.  Have a range of suitable books for them to choose from.

There are many ways to ‘read’ a book. If the book only has a few words, you’ll be surprised at all the talking you can do, and all the fun you will have.

…………………………………………………………….

MĀORI IN THE MAINSTREAM

Welcome to Term 2. This week’s instalment focuses on asking others how they feel and a range of responses that you could use in response.

Kei te pēhea koe Joey?        How are you Joey?

Kei te pai au.                            I am good.

Kei te koa au.                          I am happy.

Kei te hiamoe au.             I am sleepy.

Language to use

Kei te pēhea koe?    How are you?

BOARD OF TRUSTEES 2016 ELECTIONS

Are you passionate about the education of children in our community?

Think about standing as a candidate in the up-coming election for the Board of Trustees and using your skills and experiences to help shape a positive future for our children?

 

Nominations for the FIVE parent representatives for the upcoming Board election open on 6th May 2016.  Everyone on the roll has been sent a nomination paper.

Please consider this very important role.  Nominations close at noon on 20th May 2016 and may be accompanied by a candidate statement (max 400 words.)

 What is a school board of trustees?

Every state and state-integrated school in New Zealand has a board of trustees.

School board membership includes elected parent representatives, an elected staff representative and the principal.

What do trustees do?

First and foremost a board is accountable for student progress and achievement to its parents and community. The board has the overall responsibility for the school. This includes legal obligations covering curriculum, property, personnel, finance and health and safety.

Here are some specific things the board does

  • Sets the strategic direction and long term plans for the school and monitors the board’s progress against them.
  • Monitors and evaluates student progress and achievement.
  • Oversees the management of staff, property, finances, curriculum and administration.
  • Ensures that the educational needs and aspirations of Māori learners, Pasifika learners and learners with special education needs are identified, planned for and met.
  • Fulfils the intent of the Treaty of Waitangi by valuing and reflecting New Zealand’s dual cultural heritage.
  • Appoints and supports the principal and assesses their performance.

What skills do trustees need?

Trustees are active leaders in their school and need to work well in a team, ask challenging questions and have good communication skills. Boards need a balance of skills and experiences to ensure effective processes for planning, monitoring, reporting and reviewing the school’s performance are in place. Check out www.trustee-election.co.nz/becoming-a-trustee for more information regarding trusteeship.

Who can become a trustee?

Parents, caregivers and people from the wider community can be nominated for election to a school board. We will be happy to help you find out more about standing for election or nomination someone else.

How is a board elected?

The school staff and parents elect boards of trustees every three years.

All parents of students who are enrolled full-time in a state or state-integrated school can and should vote in the elections for parent representatives.

What help do school trustees get?

New Zealand in School Trustees Association, through a Ministry of Education contract, provides free employment and governance advice, support and resources. NZSTA also provide a variety of professional development opportunities for trustees.

NEWS FROM THE DENTAL CLINIC

5 South Service Lane   Waipukurau   858 6725

Please remember that fruit contains sugar and acid which can add to the risk of decay in your child’s teeth.  It is dentally unwise to allow your child to “graze” on fruit.  Fruit should be given as part of one of the recommended 3 meals and 2 snacks your child would normally have each day.
