Newsletter No 20 – Wednesday 6th July 2016

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the mathletics evening held on Thursday.  We were placed 3rd, 9th, 19th and 22nd.   I have been super impressed with the enthusiasm they displayed leading up to and during this event.

I was at the mathletics in Hastings last night and was pleased with the effort of our two year seven teams ( one team had a year five and a year six in it).  We were placed 11th (a bronze medal) and 21st out of 28 teams.  I look forward to taking the year eights up this evening. Apparently there will be a maths camp next year and Terrace School have been invited to attend.

School reports are well under way.  You will receive your child’s report on the last day of term.  Please remember that the reports are a snapshot of where the children are CURRENTLY.  It is the end of the year that is most important.  Whilst we must report in writing twice a year, you are more than welcome to pop in and see their teacher any time.

Coming up next term we have many exciting events.  In particular we have the Weta Art competition, OngaOnga sevens, inter-school cross-country and our major event……our production, celebrating 60 years.

Have a wonderful holiday with your children and be safe.

FROM THE DISTRICT HEALTH BOARD

As you may be aware there is an outbreak of measles in New Zealand with over 60 confirmed cases of measles reported so far. In Hawke’s Bay we have recently had a visitor to our region who was infectious with measles during their stay. Our Hawke’s Bay DHB Public Health staff are currently working to try and prevent spread. This letter is a reminder to be prepared for a potential outbreak.

  • Measles is a serious, highly infectious viral disease that is easy to prevent through immunisation. We want to help prevent an outbreak of measles occurring in Hawke’s Bay and we are urging parents and caregivers to check their children’s immunisation status/history. This should be recorded in their Well Child / Plunket book and in their medical records at their GP (Primary Care Doctor).
  • Please ensure the school has a copy of your child’s immunisation certificate. If your child has a record of two doses of Measles, Mumps and Rubella immunisation (MMR) they are considered immune. If your child has a record of one dose of MMR they should have another as soon as possible. Following the second dose of MMR your child would be considered immune and would be able to attend school if there was a case of measles.
  • If your child has no record of MMR vaccine they should have one dose now and a second dose FOUR weeks later.
  • Immunisation is FREE from your GP or Practice Nurse.

Immunisation is highly recommended as it protects your child and helps prevent the spread of infection in the community when an outbreak occurs. If there is no documentation of your child’s immunisation status they may need to be excluded from school for two weeks in the event of an outbreak.

If you require further information, you can find out more from the Ministry of Health’s website www.health.govt.nz/measles

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Much success!  That is the vibe from the Matariki experience with Otane.  Well done to all those involved.  It sounds like our hangi that was pulled up at 4:00 pm on Friday was delicious too.

According to Mrs Hart (coach/co-ordinator of the event) our little ones have improved out of sight.

Please keep your eyes out for any fundraising meetings that may be held.  Everyone is welcome to come and add their ideas.

Mathletics for the year 5/6 students is coming up this Thursday evening.  I will meet students there and if they need a ride home please let me know.

School reports are well under way.  You will receive your child’s report on the last day of term.  Whilst we must report in writing twice a year, you are more than welcome to pop in and see their teacher any time.

Zero tolerance.  That is the stand teachers and students are taking at Terrace School.  It is never ok to kick or punch other people.  All students have been told that if they hurt another child their parents will be informed and they will be sent home.  We have so many wonderful children at Terrace School and they all deserve to feel happy and safe.  I’m sure I have your support and understanding around this.

Well done to Mr Miller for organizing a successful Matariki day for everyone.  There were Matariki 1loads of excited and happy faces as they painted, played games and worked together.  We look forward to having Otane School visit with us this Friday to carry on with the celebration of Matariki.

Zero tolerance.  This is the stand teachers and students are taking at Terrace School.  It is never ok to kick or punch other people.  All students have been told that if they hurt another child their parents will be informed and they Matariki 2will be sent home.  We have so many wonderful children at Terrace School and they all deserve to feel happy and safe.  I’m sure I have your support and understanding around this.

Please keep an eye on the upcoming events.  There are fundraising activities going on and also events like Mathletics to be aware of.

SHARING BOOKS AT HOME WITH YOUR CHILD

Reading at Home

Partnerships between home and school are most likely to be effective when all partners believe that the student will succeed as a learner. Shared goals can then be developed. Teachers have a role in clarifying the expectation for the students learning and communicating these to parents and caregivers.

Teachers can share students’ achievements in reading and parents can do this too, sharing reading practices at home.

Together the parents, the teacher and the child can celebrate the child’s achievement together.

Happy reading everyone.

As you may be aware there is an outbreak of measles in New Zealand with over 60 confirmed cases of measles reported so far. In Hawke’s Bay we have recently had a visitor to our region who was infectious with measles during their stay. Our Hawke’s Bay DHB Public Health staff are currently working to try and prevent spread.

  • Measles is a serious, highly infectious viral disease that is easy to prevent through immunisation. We want to help prevent an outbreak of measles occurring in Hawke’s Bay and we are urging parents and caregivers to check their children’s immunisation status/history.

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Congratulations to the bi-lingual Team for their wonderful performance at the Matariki celebration.  I was very proud of all students and acknowledge the hard work from staff that has gone into preparing for this event.

We have our own Matariki experience coming up on Tuesday the 21st.  Mr Miller has organized a fun day for all students with loads of activities.  We will then welcome Otane school to Terrace on Friday the 24th to continue with our celebrations.

Currently we are working on ways to make our school feel friendly and safe.  It’s important to recognize the difference between rude and mean behaviour and examples of this have been given in class and assembly.  We have also talked about bullying behaviour and what it looks like, that it is not to be tolerated and explained to students what to do if it happens to themselves or someone else.

A couple of requests:  please check your child’s bag each day for any notices that need to be returned (currently I need Mathletics notices back).  Also, if anyone has left over light coloured house paint at home, Mrs Benson would love to make use of it.

A reminder that children should not be at school before 8.15am and finish, ready to be collected, at 3.00pm due to the fact that there is no supervision outside these times.

Have a good week-end.

SHARING BOOKS AT HOME WITH YOUR CHILD

Children who experience rich conversations with adults, siblings and peers and who hear lots of stories and rhymes meet a great number of words in different contexts and build up a store of words they can use fluently. A child comes to understand what particular words mean through experience and by having quality conversations. Such experiences enable children to build a growing range of words that they will recognise in their reading and use in their writing.

COMMUNITY NOTICE

Important Information from the District Health Board – Sore Throats Matter

A sore throat can lead to Rheumatic Fever if it’s left untreated. Rheumatic fever is very serious and can cause heart damage.

Every time your child/adolescent has a sore throat it is important to get it checked out by a doctor or nurse.

Ring Healthline free 0800 611 116 or visit  www.ourhealthhb.nz to get advice and find a sore throat clinic to get checked.  If your child/adolescent is Māori or Pacific descent and aged between 4-19 years old they may be eligible for FREE sore throat checks at certain doctors clinics.

If your child is given antibiotics make sure they take them for the whole 10 days even if they feel better, to stop the sore throat turning into rheumatic fever.

Newsletter No 16 – Wednesday 8th June 2016

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Good luck to our bi-lingual students who will be performing at the Matariki festival beinSausage sizzleg held at Te Aute College this Friday.  Students are to arrive back at school at 4:30 pm to get dressed and then head off to the College around 5:15 pm.  The performance should begin at 6:00 pm.

Some of my senior students have approached me about supporting the 40-hour famine.  They have decided to fundraise using our sausage sizzle which is Thursday next week.  They will be cooking and organizing the event.  It is a worthy cause so please remember to support the cause.

Just a reminder that no sugary drinks are to be brought to school as we are a heart foundation school.  We are lucky to have milk provided to us or otherwise there is always good old water.

Finally, the announcement of the Board will be tomorrow (9th of June) good luck to everyone who stood for election, I’m sure whoever is voted on will have the best interests of the students and school at heart.

Enjoy your short week.

Kathi Harris

Principal

SHARING BOOKS AT HOME WITH YOUR CHILD

Why Share Books?

Reading stories sparks your child’s imagination, stimulates curiosity and helps with brain development. Interesting illustrations and word patterns – such as rhymes – can get your child talking about what they are seeing and what they are thinking, and help them understand the patterns of language.

Exploring stories also helps your child learn the difference between ‘real’ and ‘make believe’ and can encourage their own ideas.

sharing books is a terrific way to build important literacy skills, including listening skills, vocabulary, comprehension and an increased awareness of how stories are put together. Storytellers often use a beginning-middle-end format.
