Newsletter No 36 –November 27th 2014

 Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

 We seem to be racing toward the end of the year.  Staff are working hard on their new report format which will be given out in the last week of the term.  We made the changes based on the survey we sent out to whānau and trust that you appreciate the new look.

I was super proud of our touch teams and their performances on Monday evening.  The senior teams took out first place and third.  The Otane Rippers (full of Terrace kids) won their final as well.  Saiyan Clark was awarded under 13 player of the year and Te Awarangi Puketapu-Pene was awarded under 7 player of the year.

Athletics was amazing to watch as well.  We have great little and big sprinters.  Fantastic to see Terrace take out the relay!  So much to be proud of.

I went up to camp on Wednesday evening and will be returning tonight.  There was a very positive buzz up there and the billy stew was awesome.  Today they will be taking on the walk to Sunrise hut.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… 

Next year.  Senior camp will be at Wakarara from the 16th – 20th of February.

Middle school camp will be at Wakarara from the 30th of March – 2nd of April.

We are aware of the fact that the seniors are on a two night stay at Wakarara  right now, but see the potential to do so much more next year over four nights.  The decision to have camp at the beginning of the year is for teachers and students to bond, enjoy team building as well as take a good look at who the Leaders will be for 2015.

The middle school will also get the opportunity to build good relationships and prepare for an awesome year as a team.  As a staff we will think about alternative camps every second year.  You of course will be asked for your opinion and ideas.

Some students will have paid for their camp already with the chocolate fundraising.  We would like to keep the camp at $50 per student even though there are extra nights added on.  Please start thinking about putting aside a few dollars per week in anticipation of the camps.  If you would like to work out payment with the school, please feel that you can come in and make other arrangements.

Another event coming up is the Weet-Bix kids Tryathlon which will be held on the 11th of February in Hastings.  This is a great event for students like ours who are multi- talented and I am fully prepared to take the school van to the event. In order to compete in this event, parents do need to register their own child.  If making a team up, please register these teams as well.  More information is available at the office if you would like to sign up.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Sun protection at school during term four.

Term four is a warmer term when the sun has come out putting our tamariki at risk of sunburn.

Terrace School has a no hat no play policy.  The children have their own hat to take care of while at school and if they do not have their hat, they do not play, they need to sit under the shade until their hat is found.

Sunscreen that lasts all day can be purchased and applied at home in the morning for extra sunscreen protection for children while at school.

At this time of the year, good quality sunscreen needs to be in all households to protect our beautiful tamariki from the damaging effects of the sun.

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

Mission statement

A while back we mentioned that we were looking to refresh the school Mission Statement. Thanks to the great feedback from Facebook, teachers and individuals we’ve put together a draft that we feel fits the spirit of our whānau. But it’s not just up to us… you are whānau, what do you think?

Based on the School Motto; He kaha te Matauranga : Knowledge is Strength

Mission (We aim to deliver this to our community)

Knowledge of the Past to understand the Present.

Knowledge of the Present to inform the Future.

Knowledge of Self so the Spirit walks tall.

Knowledge of Whānau to support Independence.

Knowledge of Leadership to value Service.

Knowledge of Experience to deepen Awareness.

Knowledge of Honour to realise Respect.

Knowledge of Success to respect Failure.

Knowledge binds and guides us.

He kaha te Matauranga : Knowledge is Strength

Over the next two weeks leave a message at the office, with a teacher, a board member or on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/theterraceschool). The final draft will be presented for sign off at the next Board of Trustees meeting on Dec 11th. This will allow us to have the new Mission Statement in place for the start of the 2015 year.

Thank you

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Headlice

Headlice continues to be a problem in our community.  Please check your child’s hair each week and headlice will be controlled and will become a minor problem.

Facts:

Headlice are blood sucking insects that live in the hair and feed through the human scalp.

The female lays eggs (nits or kutu) each day and glues them onto the hair close to the skin.

The eggs hatch within 7-10 days.

These new lice can lay eggs 6-10 days after they hatch.

Headlice live and breed happily in short or long, and clean or dirty hair.

Headlice cannot fly jump or swim.  They crawl from head to head during close contact.

The headlice will not survive on clothes, towels etc, but it is recommended that hats, brushes and combs are not shared.

Identification:

The adult lice are ant-sized.  They are light coloured when newly hatched, and darken as they get older.

The lice eggs are hair coloured when laid but look white when the egg has hatched.  The hatched eggshell will remain stuck on the hair until removed with a fine-toothed comb.

Look For and Control Headlice:

To help get rid of headlice and to help keep them under control, this cost-effective and simple method is recommended:

  1.  Apply a white hair conditioner to dry hair.  Ensure that all of the hair is coated.
  2.  Using an ordinary comb, comb through the hair.
  3.  Immediately after this combing, change to a fine-toothed comb and comb through all of the hair.
  4.  Wipe off the conditioner onto white tissue, and look at the paper and comb for lice and eggs.
  5.  Repeat the combing and wiping, 5 times.
  6. This conditioning and combing method works by stunning the lice, making them slower to move about.

The extra combing helps to remove the stunned lice and the eggs.

Next:

If you find less than 5 lice, repeat the conditioner and combing each day until you find no more lice.

If you find more than 5 lice use a *treatment that can be purchased from a pharmacy.  Families with a community services card can contact the Public Health Nurse to access low to no cost headlice treatment. Repeat the treatment after 7 days.

 Once the headlice are under control, it is recommended that a weekly conditioning and combing is continued.

 This regular attention will help to control reinfestation.

For further advice, contact your Public Health Nurse:

Tena koutou nga matua o te kura – Dear Parents

What a windy week we’ve had. I can tell you that our children definitely do not respond well to wind blasts or gusts. Hopefully things will settle down again quickly.

Please ensure that your child is working hard right up until the end of the year. The senior students still have goals to strive for with the prize giving not that far away.

We also have “Terrace has Talent” coming up. At Terrace we put a lot of energy into sports and academic subjects. I would really love to see students putting on a great display of their talent. It could be karate, singing, dancing…………………. doesn’t matter so long as your child wants to show their talent. Students are already beginning to ask about booking the hall for practices.

Enjoy your week-end.

Tena koutou nga matua o te kura – Dear Parents

What horrible weather we’ve had this week! Typical, considering we have just painted and filled our lovely pool. We were lucky with the weather for the cycle race held here on Sunday. There were heaps of Terrace kids participating and doing extremely well.

Don’t forget that tomorrow is school photos. Please ensure students are wearing correct uniform, have tidy hair and are not wearing nail polish. Looking at the weather the photos will probably be taken in the hall.

Next week we have a visit from ERO. There will be three unfamiliar people in and around the school asking staff, students, the BOT and maybe even parents, questions. Their job is to make sure that we are doing our job in order for our students to succeed.

I have heard wonderful things are happening for the “reading in homes” facilitators and families. I think it’s fantastic to see parents getting involved with their child’s learning. This course is designed for all students and we are hoping to run another course with more students and families next year.

Stay warm and dry.

 Room 7’s Trip

On Thursday 30th of October, Room 7 went to Waipawa museum to look at what life was like one hundred years ago. First Mrs Huck introduced us to Mr Bennett and Jana. Then Victoria and I and some other children went with Mr Bennett. We saw an old dining room, an old kitchen and an old washing room. There was a room where you could write with a feather and ink, also where you could use a typewriter and use a water pump. After we went to the park for morning tea and we had a play. Then we got on the bus to Mr Appleton – Seymour’s house because his house is one hundred years old and we had a snack. We had juice and rice bubble cakes then we left to go back to school. Room 7 had a great time and room 7 think it was the best trip.

Newsletter No 32 –October 30th 2014

Tena koutou nga matua o te kura – Dear Parents

Welcome to week three of a very busy term.

After feedback about reports and our desire to give you as much information as possible, we are trialling a new end of year report. Right now teachers are gathering data from tests as well as considering how your child has progressed through the year. These results will be compared to the National standards as requested. Reports can be expected in the last week of the term.

To share more advice from restorative practice, consider this. When having a conversation with your child and they have admitted being the wrong-doer, ask them how they think they “can make it right?”

Most children know the answer lays in “saying sorry” or “don’t do it again” Other times it might be “work off the money it cost” (to fix something.) When these words are said, acknowledge them positively. Follow up with “actions speak louder than words”. This tells the wrong doer that you will watch to see that they follow through with making it right. I hope this helps with the odd conversation you may have at home.

Enjoy your short week

Project5

Dear Terrace School Community,

Mum and Dad took us to Toy World to get some new toys after our house was burnt. We chose this fire station tent, some crayons, a tool belt and a wooden train set. We had lots of fun in the shop choosing and didn’t want to leave!

Thank you very much to all of you for thinking of us and helping us feel at home in our temporary house. I am going to help the builder build our new house with the tool belt (Nicholas).

I love making up stories with the little Simpsons figurines in the tent (Alfie).

We have really felt the generosity with people’s time and resources during this difficult time. It shows the real strength of living in this community (Tony and El).

Thank you once again.

Arohanui from Alfie, Nicholas, Tony and El Kuklinski.
