PĀNUI | NEWSLETTER 04 SEPTEMBER 2020
04 Sep 2020
It has been awesome to see the students back in school. Their bright faces and the fine, sunny weather made for a great first week and this has been evident in the work the students have been producing.
Thank you for supporting your child through the online, distance learning. We trust it was not too much of a challenge for you having to juggle their learning with your work commitments.
Just a quick reminder, no students are allowed on school before 8:00 a.m. If you arrive earlier, your child must wait in your car until a staff member opens the gate.
Once we are back in Alert Level 1 we will once again have assemblies which parents will be able to attend. However, with the government keeping us at Alert Level 2.5 for another ten days it is unlikely that we will be having assemblies at all this term.
As we plan for 2021 to accurately determine what our number of in zone enrolments will be, we need to know how many siblings of current students who live in our enrolment zone will be coming to Te Hihi next year.
If you have a four year old who will be starting with us at any time next year, please contact Birdie Dell in the school office by Friday 11 September.
The Ag Day organising committee is meeting next week to consider the impact of the current and possible future Alert Levels on Ag Day.
Until that meeting has been held, the materials for the Ag Day project will not be given out. As a school we are considering making time available within the school day for the students to work on their project to ensure all children achieve success with their project.
Te Kanawa’s week has been full of learning, fun activities, and experiences. All of our students demonstrated that they are risk takers and communicators as they shared their speeches in front of a big audience they were great Rehu Tai presentations!
Also we have been practising our multiplication facts up to12 and we appreciate your support at home with learning these.
Te Kanawa also shared their summative assessment to finish a great week. Other highlights were dancing with footsteps, reading a good book in the school library and having the opportunity of a hot dog or hot chocolate with friends.
