Term 4 Number 7
Wednesday 27th November 2013
Hello / Kia Ora
We welcome our new entrant, 5 year old Ridge Ngataua who joined our Junior room last week.
School Staffing – Our wonderful junior teacher Mrs Saunders has won a Teachers’ Study award for 2014. She will be away from March till early November. We have had many teachers wanting to join our school to relieve in this position. On Monday I met with a BOT representative and we have appointed Mrs Katarina Lee to this fixed term position. Congratulations Jean.
Square milk/yoghurt cartons – Please save your square milk/yoghurt cartons for a craft project in the Junior room.
BOT News—We will lose one of our valued BOT members at the end of the year so will need to appoint a new member to our Board.
Nikki Colville has been involved in the BOT for 6 years and we will be sad to see her leave our school as Hannah moves onto MBAS for her secondary education. We have valued her wise council over the years. Thank You
If you are planning to be involved in the governance of the school, now could be your opportunity to begin to find out more. Please speak to a BOT member if you are interested in joining the Board at some stage.
Year 8s – can those year 8s moving on the MBAS who have not yet returned their enrolment forms, please complete and return to the school office this week.
Jack Lockhart has been nominated for Junior Sportsperson of the year. The winner will be announced on Thursday the 28th of November. Watch this space.
