Week 6 Newsletter

Notes and Reminders
Congratulations to all the year 4 children that took part in the School Swimming Sports on Monday.  
They certainly made us proud!

Styx Mill Freshwater Frolicking
Thank you to all the parents and caregivers that have offered to help on our school trip to Styx Mill
Reserve this week. We wouldn’t be able to go on these trips without your support. Your homebase
teacher has emailed you with the time that they would like you to met them in their homebase
space, before heading to the bus on the day of their trip.


The children are able to wear sensible mufti for the day.

• Shorts/pants
• Walking shoes
• Warm jersey
• Jacket and gumboots (if wet)

Note: If wet the trip will still go ahead.
Jane and Fiona’s homebase will have lunch before they go.

School Standardised Testing
This week we will be completing listening, reading and maths standardised assessments in our
hub. The children will be working in year level groups for these assessments. These have been
timetabled in around an already busy week. Therefore, children may not bring a reading book
home to read. This will be a great opportunity for you to read to or with your child. If you have a
book at home that they are reading, they are most welcome to read this and record it in the
‘Recreational Reading’ table.

Library Books
On a Tuesday, the children are now able to take a book home for the week. Books need to be
returned the following Tuesday. However, if a child would like to have the book for an extra
week the book can be reissued for them.

School Swimming
Swimming has finished for term one.

Life Ed Van Parent Visit
We have the ‘Life Education’ van in our school on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 March for Tui
hub. Our sessions for Kahikatea is not until the 19 and 20 March. However, the van will be open
to all  parents and caregivers on Wednesday 7 March from 8.45am until 9.15am. This will enable
you to see what they educate your child and the programmes that they run.  

Have a great week

Jane, Trish and Fiona
