Tēnā koutou e te whānau o te Kura ā Rohe o Whaingaroa.
We have come to the end of Term 1 – what a term! Whilst we acknowledge the disruptions due to COVID 19, we are incredibly proud of the work our Kura Teina tamariki have been doing, they are focused, working hard and achieving success in many areas. These areas include the Learning Conversations which were held online and where we received some excellent feedback. The Years 3-6 students participated in the syndicate swimming sports on Friday 8th April and this was a huge success. A huge ngā mihi to Matua Jason and the team who organised the event. It was great to see our teachers dressing up for the occasion too.
Our Kura Teina teachers and Learning assistants are continuing to guide our students in their learning journey and we thank and acknowledge them for the work they have been doing and will continue to do. Over the next two weeks the staff will take time to rest, reflect and recharge. They will welcome the tamariki back on Monday the 2nd May.
If you have been onsite, you would have seen our new Year 5 and 6 modular block, this building will be the new home to our Year 5 and 6 students. The estimated move in time is approximately Week 3 of Term 2, if there is a delay we will communicate this with you. Some students might be learning with other students from another class, however their whanau teacher will remain the same. Our aim is for this space to be utilised collaboratively, it may take some time but we are hoping to have a firm pathway by the end of the year.
Our Junior syndicate were in the pool this week celebrating their swimming skills, ngā mihi to Whaea Serita for organising the activities.
Enjoy the holidays whānau, take care, be kind to each other and have an awesome Easter break. See you back again in Term 2.
Kia noho haumaru, kia pai! Stay safe and keep well.
