Newsletter No 30 –October 16th 2014

Tena koutou nga matua o te kura – Dear Parents

I hope you had a great break with your children over the holidays. Often it’s hard to juggle work and children but many of you cope with this extremely well.

I, along with four other staff members, attended a ‘Restorative Practice ‘workshop for the first three days of the holidays. The workshop was about a whole school approach to positive behaviour management. We learnt numerous strategies including ways to build relationships with our students even further.

The first one that I will share with you is that sometimes children may have had an awful beginning to the day for whatever reason. Our first approach as teachers is to ‘check in’ with them by asking them how they are and actually listening. Often a simple approach such as this avoids potential conflict and will let us know they’ve had a bit of a bad start and we can work to lift them back to a positive mood.

During the second week, I along with another four teachers attended and ICT conference in Rotorua for four days. When our computer up-grade is totally finished (we are hoping all the glitches will be gone by the end of the week) then we will begin to look at ways to implement all the things we have learnt into the curriculum.

Over the holidays we also appointed George McGowan as a permanent teacher, Team Leader and Mathematics management holder. Congratulations George.

Term four is always a hectic term and my calendar is full already. I will let you know when events are on through the newsletter and on our facebook page.

Enjoy the sun.

Parents of the children going should have received newsletters advising of cost and the opportunity to assist with funding the camps by selling chocolate. If your child is in these classes and you have not received any information please let the office know.

(If your children are not old enough to be going to camp, then the chocolates for sale are REALLY Yummy, really good value and the money is going to a really good cause!)

Tena koutou nga matua o te kura – Dear Parents

As always, you are wonderful and supportive parents. Please help your child fill out their registration form for the Hatuma Lime Half Marathon and Kuklinski Fundraiser. The school will then pass it on to the appropriate organisers.

Here is a message from the teachers who have bus duty. Firstly, thanks to the wonderful volunteers who go on the Tavistock road bus. We appreciate your time and effort. Secondly, if your child is not going on the bus in the afternoon, please either provide them with a note to let us know or ring the office so that we can take their name off the list.

Good luck to the inter-school cross country runners this Thursday. The Principal of Flemington wanted to let parents and supporters know that you might need your gumboots if you’re going to watch.

Our healthy lunches seem to be an enormous success. I personally loved the soup and toast I had on Tuesday. Yet again our supportive parents are helping out. Our first Friday warm lunch is coming up. If you are around and would like to eat with your child/ren, we would love to take your order and see you there.

Hatuma Lime Half Marathon

 

Dear Parents/Whanau.

Terrace School is getting in behind the Kuklinski Family by being a part of the Hatuma Lime Half Marathon on Sunday the 21st of September from 8:30-1:00pm. The children in the photo have indicated that they would like to be a part of the race. If you agree, here’s what to do next…….

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

There are many of you that are already fit and healthy who were going to take part in this event anyway. What we need is your help to put a team of students together and be with them on the day (4 per team and $20.00 per team, this is a discounted price) who will share the race. This is really for competent runners/walkers at the senior end of the school.

Of course we are aware of younger students who are amazing and could fit into a team as well. The team will wear their Terrace uniform and be eligible for spot prizes and a tee-shirt. Students are to try and get sponsorship (money) for each km they run. The money will be gathered after the event and donated to the Kuklinski family.

For the younger ones, we have permission from the racecourse to use their facilities for our students to walk/run their 1 km. This way it will be very safe with little interruption and the ability to stop when tired.

I have attached an entry form that needs to be filled out and brought back to the office. The teams will split the cost to enter. Also attached is a sponsorhip sheet. Students are to ask whanau and neighbours to sponsor them some money per kilometre that they run. They would then collect the money at the completion of the race.

 

Sponsorship form.

On the 21st of September we are running/walking in the Hatuma Lime Half Marathon to raise money and donate it to the Kuklinski family. Their home was burnt down and this is our way of showing we care. Could you please sponsor me a certain amount of money per Km that I run or walk.

Tena koutou nga matua o te kura – Dear Parents

First off, a huge Thank You!

Last weekend Terrace teacher Mrs Kuklinski and her family lost their home to fire but as always our wonderful community have rallied in support.

Fortunately the family were not home at the time so no-one was hurt, but they have lost their house and all their belongings. The Terrace Board have made a donation to the Kuklinski’s on behalf of the school and many other generous members of our community have already given clothing and furniture and offered accommodation.

To try and make life just that little bit easier, Terrace School has decided to join the Hatuma Half-Marathon on Sun 21st of September.

Project13

RUN A ‘K’ FOR THE ‘Ks’ will be our catch-cry to get as many children running and walking for the Kuklinski’s as possible.   We will ask for sponsorship of our students for every Kilometre they manage and students will be bringing home separate forms to take to their neighbours and family members to fill out.

Please support us with this worthy cause.

Have Your Say

We’re reviewing our Charter and looking at giving our school Mission Statement a bit of a makeover, but we can’t do it without your input.

What is the Charter?

The Charter outlines what we want for our school. It guides and underpins all the policies and decisions made by all members of our staff and leadership teams. If you want to see a plain-language version of our Charter go to:

http://board.terrace.school.nz/plain-speak-charter-and-mission-statement/

What is the Motto/Vision/Mission Statement?

We currently have a Motto, Vision AND a Mission Statement. In 2014 we are looking at combining them all into to one or two sentences that encapsulate what we want our school to be.

The Current Motto:

He Kaha Te Mautauranga – Knowledge is Strength

The Current Vision:

Fostering students who are enterprising and who care for themselves, others and the environment. Students who value effort, aim for quality work and who have a positive attitude to all areas of learning.

… and our current Mission Statement:

The creation of a climate which will cater for the needs of all children academically, culturally and socially.

The school tradition will be based on the concept ‘Knowledge is Strength’ with the ultimate aim being to give each and every child the opportunity of taking their place in society with dignity and respect.

Programs and resources will be provided which will enable individual children to meet their identified needs and subsequently lead them to become useful citizens in later life.

Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be throwing some ideas and questions out on Facebook and through the newsletter, asking for your feedback. So get those thinking caps on, keep your eyes peeled and tell us what you want from your school, what you want your children to learn while they are with us and how you want us to represent you.

Remember; You are ALL an important part of our whanau and you ALL have a voice. Now’s your chance to be heard :)
