Health and Safety Reminder

posted by David Reardon

On the advice of the legal profession we wish to remind you that children are not welcome without supervision in the school grounds before 8.25 and should leave immediately after school, and certainly stay no longer than 3.15.  Please note the school will not be held responsible for children outside of these hours.  Children are welcome to return to the school grounds with your approval outside of these hours but they remain your responsibility.

We are presently preparing for Student Led Conferences (SLCs) to be held Monday, July 4 and Tuesday, July 5.  We are looking forward to meeting with you all. Details of how to book these times are being sent home this Thursday.  The letter of explanation is attached here and instructions on how to book your SLC are here. We've got pretty close to every student having a conference in years gone by but we haven't yet hit the 100% mark.  Can we do it this time?

At the moment we have a huge amount of lost property.

Can you name your child’s clothes and property please?  A lost property box is kept in the corridor outside the library. At regular intervals the contents of the box are spread out and classes are given the opportunity to examine and claim any items recognised as belonging to them.

Absences:

If your child is sick or unable to attend school for all or part of the day, please phone the school office by 9.00 a.m. so that your child’s absence can be accounted for.  This is most important to alleviate any concerns about your child’s whereabouts.  If no communication has been received from parents then a member of the office staff will contact you by telephone. Please note, we only accept this information from parents and for that reason we do not accept texts.

 We have a 24/7 answer phone service so you can ring and leave a message at you convenience.

If an absence is planned for a special reason, a note or telephone call to the school in advance is appreciated.  In cases of prolonged absence, prior warning can enable work to be set or the dates of special class events changed.

Friday 24th June Matariki Concert

Kia Ora e te Whānau,

Matariki Concert 24th June 2016

The Matariki concert is on Friday 24th June in the RSS School hall. The Juniors will perform first at 5.30pm before we eat our delicious hangi and the seniors will perform after dinner at 6.30pm. The concert should be finished between 7pm and 7.30pm. If your child is in the Junior Kapa Haka they need to arrive at School (The Hub) by 5.15pm and if they are in the Senior Kapa Haka they need to arrive at 6.15pm.  NB - The concert is not compulsory for students to attend. So if you can't make it that is okay.

We would also like to thank Kelly Club for being so flexible and allowing us to use the hall for the Matariki Concert from 5pm on Friday, even though they don't finish until 6pm. If your child is still at Kelly Club between 5pm and 6pm, they can be picked up from Room 11. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Thanks

Papatuanuku Art Day

posted 20 Jun 2016, 02:24 by Ebony Maaka

Papatuanuku (Junior) Team will be engaging in an art intensive day on Tuesday 28th June. We welcome Carolyn to pass on some of her artist wisdom to both students and teachers through a focus on line and Maori art. The children will explore many art techniques and concepts that will celebrate some learning from the term. Please ensure your child is wearing clothing that will be okay to get messy.

This special day, outside of the usual school day, is made possible with each child's activity fee. Thanks in advance for those who have paid this already. Please see the office if you are still yet to do so.

The different nature of the day may also mean that your child will not have home learning. We encourage you to ask your child reflective questions about the day instead. For example, "what was enjoyable, what did you try that was new for you, what was tricky, how did you overcome the hard part, what are you proud of?"

We look forward to sharing our art with you in the weeks to follow.
