Tena koutou nga matua o te kura – Dear Parents

Whaea Kathy Jackson and George McGowan are new members of the school. They are excited to be here and are looking forward to meeting all whanau. Both will be at the parent conferences next week and would really love to meet you.

SURVEY

During the parent conferences, students will be waiting outside the classrooms to fill out a survey about the format of the existing reports and ways we could improve them. Please take five minutes to answer their questions to improve our practice.

SCHOOL LUNCHES

The Leaders have done a lot of work around designing lunches that meet the heart foundation criteria. We are now at the stage of trying out a new menu. In order to do this we need your help. So far we have two parents who are willing to help by coming in to school one day a week (for an hour) to put together lunches ready for the 12:30 bell. If you are able to help prepare lunches please inform the office of which days you are available and we will put teams together. Your help would be very much appreciated

PARENT/TEACHER INTERVIEWS

Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th August 2014.   Whilst we would like all parents to attend the meeting, we would like pupils Y4 and upwards to attend with their parents.

Monday – School as usual and meetings will commence at 3.30pm going through to 5.45pm

Tuesday – School will close at midday and meetings will commence at 1.00pm through to 5.45pm with 15 minutes being allocated to parents for each child.

On Tuesday bus children may remain at school during the afternoon if desired and be picked up when parents arrive for meetings. The Tavistock Road bus, however, will run at 12.10pm this day.

The staff and Board of Trustees have an open door policy where parents are encouraged to discuss, with school staff, any matters concerning the education of pupils. Staff are always available at school (3.00pm – 3.30pm) to talk to parents. Other times can, of course, be arranged and an appointment would be appreciated.

Pupils in the middle/senior syndicate are expected to attend the interview so that their own learning goals and expectations can be discussed. Parents who wish to talk to the teacher, without the child present, can obviously do this for example half way through the interview time. If this still is not suitable please contact your child’s teacher prior to the interview.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

 Kids in the Community

This is where we get to celebrate our students out and about in the community.

It doesn’t matter if your child is competing in a sports or cultural event, racing down a mudslide, entertaining the crowd with a magic trick or rocking out at a concert, take a snapshot and send it along with your child’s name and description of the event to news@terrace.school.nz and we’ll shine a little Terrace spotlight on it J

RUGBY UPDATE: BOYD HARRIS

Central Terrace U13s vs. Dannevirke Country

Another fine win by the team 60 to 12.

Due to injuries, we had just the bare 15 players so there were not subs for the boys and this game also saw the return to rugby for Thomas Higgins after badly breaking his arm earlier on in the season.

The team performed really well with Sirius Tamati-Smith making some huge runs, beating six or seven would be tacklers and setting the ball well. He was rewarded with POD (player of the day).

Thomas Higgins, Jimmy and Lukas Harris also had good games and are building nicely towards the semi-finals in two weeks.

Well done to Tui Kuru for being selected to trial for the Hawkes Bay U13 open weight rep team.

Next week against Waipawa at 12.45 at Waipawa on their Club day.

Junior Rugby

The C.H.B.J.A.B (Junior Rugby Committee) is looking for anyone who is able to provide some steer cattle grazing for the upcoming season.

Please phone J.K 8587535/0278587535

Tena koutou nga matua o te kura – Dear Parents

Welcome to Week 9 and the end of Term 2.

Thanks to everyone who came and supported our Clothing Bonanza. We had so much interest that we had to extend it to the Sunday as well! A special thank you to our school leaders for their culinary efforts and to Nanny Sandy and her family for all the time and commitment they give to our whanau.

By the time you get this the Science Fair will be over and our fantastic team of students and supporters will have packed their projects away for another year. The focus turns to our teams competing in the CHB Literacy Quiz on Thursday, class end of term treats and of course the approaching holidays.

Thanks to students, parents and teachers who have taken part in the survey around school lunches. We will be analysing answers to the survey and considering ideas that have been put forward. We look forward to creating a healthy lunch menu in the future.

We also have two new arrivals, Fe Wilder and George McGowen, joining us next term and I’ll introduce them properly a little later. In the meantime, have a safe and enjoyable break and we’ll see you bright and early on the 21st.

@ Waipukurau Primary.

 Come along and support our fantastic teams in this popular local event.

(For those with children competing, a wee reminder that your child needs to be in school uniform. Thank you)

 ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

   NEW ARRIVALS:

Fiona Wilder

Well……she’s not really new but we would like to welcome back Fe Wilder. Fe will be back in a permanent part-time position working with young readers, three days a week. We look forward to seeing her smiling face around the school.

George McGowan

George joins us from Waipukurau Primary School. He has been appointed as a fixed-term reliever and will be teaching in room 10 and leading the senior team. George was a Principal for approximately 20 years and has had recent experience teaching abroad. I’m sure George will prepare a blurb about himself for our first newsletter back in term 3. Welcome aboard George.

 ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 Farewell Mrs McKenzie

At the Junior School Assembly last Friday the children and staff held a special assembly for “Princess” Mrs McKenzie. Each class did a tribute to her by way of making a book, cards, poster and photo flowers.

She was supposed to receive a bunch of flowers at the time, still receiving them, but after the children had gone home. Oops Mrs Chant!!

Mrs McKenzie has been a very valued member of our staff and has helped many children with their learning. She has been part of TerraceSchool for a very long time and will be missed by us all.

From the Junior Syndicate.

We only need one filled in per family, so the sooner these are returned to the office the sooner we can start sharing the amazing pictures we have.

This week we have plenty in store with winter sports practices, preparation continues for the Science Fair and Mathletics competitions, our Clothing Bonanza is next week and the announcement that Terrace has Talent is coming a little earlier than usual – so stay tuned….

Kids In School

 Here are some pictures from our recent JuniorSchool trip to A’deanes Bush.
The Totara tree is believed to be over 600 years old and ALL of Room 2 could hug it at one time!
We saw some berries, heard some birds and even had a weta jump out of the tree onto a very very brave teacher (who only screamed for a little while!)

Kids in the Community

 This is a new section where we get to celebrate our students out and about in the community.

It doesn’t matter if your child is competing in a sports or cultural event, racing down a mudslide, entertaining the crowd with a magic trick or rocking out at a concert, take a snapshot and send it along with your child’s name and description to our email and we’ll shine a little Terrace spotlight on it :)

  Over Queen’s Birthday weekend Niamh Illsley along with Danni, Leonie and Brianna McNaught competed in the North Island Highland Dance Championships. Between them they received several medals for placing in the top six in their chosen events. Well done!

 NEWS FROM THE DENTAL CLINIC5 South Service Lane Waipukurau – 8586725:

Dental Clinic Parking: There are car parks designated for the convenience and safety of families arriving at the dental clinic. Members of the public are increasingly using these parks; either parking and leaving their vehicles, or refusing to vacate the car park when asked to do so by the clinic staff. Please let the staff know if you cannot get a car park when you arrive for your appointment.

Remember – every time we eat or drink anything sweet or acidic there is the potential to have a 20 minute acid attack on our teeth!! Try to keep these attacks to a minimum. Save sugary and acidic foods and drinks for special occasions.
