First day of school!

 Kia ora koutou,

We have had such a great first morning at school! 'Goodbyes' to our whanau were positive, and we quickly did our morning jobs and started our Learning Through Play. We have sung songs, listened to stories, eaten our morning tea and had break time on the playground.

We went on a walk around the school, to look at all the places we need to know about. We took the time to learn the boundaries and practise stopping at the yellow lines. Knowing about the boundaries helps to keep us safe at school.

We met Sandy, our Principal, when we were out on our walk. We even had a look to see where we can find Jo when she is out of the Hub and in the office.

Learning Through Play is lots of fun, and we are making new friends and getting to know our teachers.

A reminder that Welcome Assembly will be at 9.15 a.m. tomorrow morning in the school hall.

We look forward to telling you all about our day when we see you after school.

Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou,

Koru tamariki, Elizabeth, Nicola and Jo

Kauri Whānau: Ready to start!

 It has been fabulous meeting with you all over the last two days and we are excited to get underway tomorrow. Below is the video from learning conferences in case you wanted to recap on any information. 

Key reminders for children:

  • Come with a positive mindset and a big smile
  • Please bring BYODs tomorrow
  • As soon as you arrive at school,  go and say good morning to your home-group teacher
  • If you have a phone, hand it into the blue tub and tick your name off on the chart
  • If you don't want your lunch to be heated by the sun, put your lunchbox on the shelf in the maker-space when you arrive
  • Remember your sunhat
  • Bring your stationery if it is not at school yet
  • If you took forms home to be signed and filled in, please return these to the labelled boxes on the spotty table
