Dear Parents/Whanau,

Just a few quick reminders before the end of the year...

On our school web site we have a quick questionnaire/survey to help us to prepare the annual plan. We would like to get your feedback. Please take a few minutes to give us your feedback.

Life Education is going really well and students are enjoying the programme. Just a reminder to pay your $5.00 per child at the office or send the money along with your child.

We are in the final week of our Sports Taranaki physical education programme. We met with the co-ordinator at our staff meeting this week and staff have asked to continue with the programme and training again next year. Students are learning and practising a range of new skills. Teachers are learning about skill based P.E programmes.

Please keep an eye on the school web page as quite a few photos and videos are added regularly. Information on the web page is regularly updated by Hannah Williams, so if you didn't get a newsletter for any reason, check out the web page.

We are trying to finalize classes for next year. Again we have huge issues around class numbers. In order to start our Junior Room with 5 students, the rest of our classes are pretty full, and we have the usual bulges. The latest lists leave no room to take in additional students at some class levels so we are going to have another look on Thursday to see if we can rework some of the classes. We currently have 60 students alone in Year 3 and 4. I would like to thank all of the parents who have come in to tell us about other students or who have told us that they may be leaving at the change of season. The more accurate our information the better we are able to make decisions about classes. Thanks everyone.

I am currently reading through reports. I have completed 4 classes and hope to have the rest read by the end of the week.

Could we please have all end of year cups returned to school. We need to have these engraved next week for break-up.

Final reminder that all tech fees and sports fees need to be paid before the end of the year. We still have a number of outstanding fees. These are NOT a donation. The fees have been paid to the High School or to the various sporting organisations on your behalf. The school is not in a position to carry this debt, so I would appreciate it if you would make your payments to the school office.
