2023 - Welcome!

Tamariki are looking forward to getting our BosS (Board of selected Students). This board of students is elected by their peers to represent their class. I meet with these students regularly throughout the year and hear their voice, ideas, thoughts and feedback. They are a great connect to the class and collect ideas, voice and thoughts. Occasionally they organize events and this is one way we can ensure that things happen with and alongside our students without doing everything to them. I was super proud of last years leaders and look forward to meeting the elected students in a few weeks time.

We feel very positive about the start of the year – the swimming has been amazing, the playground is a great place to be and there is a lot of support and help going on. Learning is happening in many ways, and we are using arts and sports and fun activities to settle in and get to know new tamariki in our classes. If you are celebrating the day with your amazing tamariki – two stars and a wish. Two amazing things that happened in their day and only one thing they might do differently, grow or try differently next time. Focus on the stars!

Assemblies – tamariki have had conversations in class. I shared on dojo the decision made. Tamariki will choose about standing at assembly. We will keep our words, as teachers, shorted, and we will have assemblies all together week 3, 6 and 9 of each term. A reminder will be sent but this term  we have room 5 today, room 10 in week 6 and room 2 in week 9. Next week we have Nayland College Music visiting us – they will demonstrate some instruments and then offer lessons. (these are outside the curriculum, something you can choose as a family. We have fliers with information and costs at the office.) 

Fruit – we have fruit on our trees. We are very happy for you to collect some. Room 1 made beautiful apple crumble this week with school apples and they all enjoyed it! If you are picking fruit please be careful not to break branches – we want our trees to offer us as much fruit next year. Maybe bring a stick to poke them off the tree higher up. If anyone has pigs we have lots of ground fruit you are most welcome to take and feed to them too! The biggest thing is to look after the trees while you are collecting fruit. (They are unsprayed and pesticide free – so yes, they have blemishes and sometimes a bug in them).

Who are we?
