Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

You would have heard about the senior school camp and George’s exciting trip out of Sunrise hut?   For those of you who have not caught up, George tripped over a root on the Sunrise track and hit his head.  The team with him were amazing and managed to get him to Hastings Hospital via helicopter.  George is still struggling with headaches and dizziness which is described as delayed concussion.  In the mean time we have been able to utilise the skills of artistic Mrs Benson.  Hopefully he will be back with us quickly.

Aside from the accident all reports are that the students were wonderful and had a great time on camp.  Well done to Rachel for her hard work, Lorraine for her cooking and an enormous thanks to the helpful and supportive parents that made the camp possible.

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Currently our monorail is out of action while we discuss the best way to treat it.  In the past we have had several broken arms and two days ago a concussion.  It would be sad to lose this piece of play equipment but my concern is more for the safety of the children.

Make the most of the weather there is a chill in the air in the mornings.  Not enough to keep us out of the pool though, I’m really looking forward to seeing the talent we have in action in the pool.

Sadly we are having trouble with young adults and children using our grounds after school.  Evidence of attempts to burn dry grass and leaves makes us very concerned.  There is also a lot of rubbish building up on the bottom field which gives a poor impression.  Please treat our grounds with respect.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

We have got off to a great start to the year and to keep things going smoothly please keep the following things in mind.

Procedures for concerns:

At times there may be concerns that you have about something that has happened at school.  In order to be able to put your mind at ease or get to the bottom of an issue, it important to go through the following steps.

  • Inform or talk about your concern with your child’s teacher.  Together you will be able to determine if it should go to the next step.
  • The next step is to organise a time to meet with your child’s Team Leader.  For the Junior school, this is Sue Chant.  For the Senior school, this is George McGowan and for the Dual medium team, this is Rachel Kingi.
  • If the Team Leader decides that the concern is of some urgency, a time will be made to meet with me, Kathi Harris and Principal.

Please ensure you follow these steps to save frustration or any negativity about our school.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

Setting expectations:

At this time of year it’s a fantastic opportunity to set goals and have expectations.  Room four invited me into their classroom to hear about my expectations of them and in turn gave me a list of their expectations of me as their Principal.

  • Find ways to make sure all my students are learning
  • Look after us
  • Buy things to put in the garden
  • Buy computers, rubbers and pencils to use
  • Make sure people follow the rules
  • Have fun together

I thought these were excellent expectations.  Great to hear what our students think.

Newsletter 11 December

Newsletter No 38 –December 11th 2014

 Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

 Season’s greeting to all.

This will be our final newsletter for the year.  For some reason it has felt like a very long term.  It is coming to an exciting conclusion however, and one of the exciting things to happen tonight is the Leavers dinner.  Most students have been to see me and we have organised their formal clothing.  The expectation is that these students arrive at the school hall with one or both of their parents/guardian at 5:30 pm.  They will have their photograph taken with family and then mingle with other parents until 6:00 pm.  After family have left, students will be provided with a seafood menu.  There will be an option of swimming (and maybe a bit of a dance) after dinner.  Parents are to pick their child up at 9:00pm.

The middle school are going on their Stoney Creek trips, room 4 are off to Omakere and everyone is gearing up for their prize-giving ceremonies.  Please take note of the dates and times.
