 Results of Report Survey

These have indicated that we need to add a glossary to our reports, add extra boxes for some subjects and share more information about the National Standards.

The staff at Terrace will consult and try to find the best way to do this.

Cross Country @ Terrace

We have started training for the cross country in the afternoons. Our first run Included Rooms 7,8,11 and Room 6.

The children run up the school path, out along Porangahau Road down to Gaisford, where they turn at Blondies and run up and over Gaisford down to Racecourse Road. They run along Racecourse Road until they get to Lakeview Road, following that until they get back to Porangahau Road then back down the school path back to the assembly area where they must stretch and cool down.

Children are encouraged to run in shoes but they can run barefoot if they choose to.

We will run as often as the weather permits and our competent runners will have Humpty’s Hill added to their run for a challenge.

Teachers are posted at all streets that have to be crossed and we check the paths before the children run.

Congratulations to these children for their amazing efforts:

Korban Stevenson
Emma Johnson
Eli McKibbon
Patrick Gilby
Breana Gilby
Bayden Auckram
Kahleal-Pace Reti
Honoria Williams
Unique Williams
Tahjei Ngarotata-Garnham
Anton Ellmers and
Carlos Ellmers

Brilliant effort and attitude by all of the children that ran on Tuesday…Yay!

Senior Rugby Round-up
with Boyd Harris

Central Terrace vs Waipawa - Game day2nd August 2014

A sound win, 55 to nil, with the whole team contributing across the park in both attack and defence. Highlight of the game was a new move that saw Raniera Nathan putting a “banana” kick up and Carlos Ellmers out pacing his marker, catching it on the full and on the run and gassing everyone to score…Just like the NRL.

Was great to see Mrs. Harris on the sidelines supporting the team.

Congratulations to Tui Kuru (our captain) for getting selected for the Hawkes Bay U13 Open weight rep team, great to see your hard work being recognised.

Next week we are facing Central Waipukurau at Central Park at 11am

Central Terrace vs Central Waipukurau : 20 – 20 Draw – 9th August 2014

Very exciting game with our team going to a 10 – 5 half- time lead. But once Waipukurau turned and had the wind they came right back at us and with just 9 mins on the clock led 20 to 15.

We regrouped and worked well as a team and managed to score again to be level at 20 points each and managed to hold them out for the last 3 minutes. Great team effort and a big improvement since the last time we played them and with a bit more focus we can go all the way next time.

Next game is our Semi-final against Huia Range/ TKK in Dannevirke and if we can focus this week, we will have one more chance to knock over Waipukurau in the Final…. wouldn’t that be good!  :)

News from the Dental Clinic (5 South Service Lane, Waipukurau, 8586725)

Sometimes it can be hard to get other adults around your child to respect your child’s right to have a healthy mouth. Please remind them that what they think is a special treat for the child (eg: lollies, fizzy, juice, biscuits, etc) can cause tooth decay and pain.

Chat about other ways they can give your child a treat.

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.

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

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

 Newsletter No 19 – July 2nd 2014

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.

Thursday July 3rd

6pm – 7:30pm

@ 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.

 PARENT/TEACHER INTERVIEW MEETINGS

* 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.

Please return your interview form to school by *Thursday 31st July 2014*

Download your copy here: PT Interview Booking Form

The sooner you return the form the more likely you are of receiving the times you want :)

Monday – School as usual. 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.

 Policy News:

 A big Thank You! to everyone who has dropped in their Image Permission Forms already. For those who wanted to view our Online Publication of Student Images and Work Policy, this is now available online at  the Board Site and will be available to view in the staffroom and office from the start of Term 3.

This Policy simply says that we won’t use any pictures of your children or their work without your permission and that we will NOT use any identifiable images of the children on Facebook.
