Week 1 of the Holidays!

Kia ora,

We hope you are all doing well in your 'bubble'. The teachers have been relaxing this week through baking, art, reading and taking walks or biking, applying the physical distance rule, around the local area.




There are some lovely autumn colours to see on the walk around the neighbourhood.




Wow! We have loved seeing the creativity and fun that has been happening during the first week of the holidays.

Thank you to our tamariki who shared a photo with us. We hope you enjoy seeing what your teammates have been up to.

Kauri Whānau: Check Google Classroom

Kia ora everyone,

Can you please ask your Year 7 & 8 to check the Kauri Google Classroom. We have just added two new posts for them to check out. It would be great for the children in our team to get into the habit of checking their school email every couple of days, if they are not already doing so. Not for work at this stage - just keeping in touch and staying connected.

Many thanks

Kauri Whānau connecting in the holidays

Kia ora everyone,

We hope that all is well in your bubble. It has been great to see so many of our tamariki engaging in our connecting activity that is posted on the Kauri Google Classroom. There is still time to send in photos and to guess who is doing what, especially for the more recently added photos. I will leave the activity to run through today, Saturday, and will post answers tomorrow, Sunday. So far one person has only made one error with their guesses, pretty jolly impressive! Encourage your child to get involved if they haven't already. Below are a couple of sample slides from the Google Classroom post.








Extension to closing date for submissions on Proposed Zone Ammendment

Proposed Enrolment Zone Amendment

Kia ora koutou

Given the current state of the nation, and the significant changes that we have all had to deal with over the past two weeks, the Board of Trustees have requested an extension to the closing date for submissions on the Proposed Enrolment Zone Amendment. This request has been approved.

The new closing date for submissions to the Proposed Enrolment Zone Amendment will be Friday 17th April.

Submissions should be sent to Tom Scollard: tom@tomscollard.co.nz

All of the information about the proposed changes can be found on our school website under 'Enrolment/Proposed Enrolment Zone Amendment'

Kauri Whānau connecting in the holidays

Kia ora everyone,

In these extraordinary times it is really important to stay connected. We have recorded some videos and put a fun activity together so that all of our Year 7 & 8s can keep in touch. Please let your child know that they can go onto the Kauri Google Classroom to access the presentation we have put together for them. (It is not work!) We have also uploaded a google form for them to fill in for leadership points in term 1.

Take care
