Our Home Base


The Home Base is the place where you can link to our classroom programme, find information and find answers to questions you may have. Some pages are public, other pages will be visible to only those who have access, This is for students to post work in a private setting.

The Blog and the Google Site

I have run a blog for several years, which is a neat way to share our experiences with the world. I am going to start this year with both a site and a blog. One will be to share learning, and the other (this one), will be a place for students to see work and give each other feedback. Later in the term, I will evaluate whether running the two platforms is meeting my needs and if they're manageable. Feel free to give me feedback on how you are finding the two different mediums.

I can be contacted at: khogg@berkley.school.nz

An Invitation

Weeks one and two: Meet the teacher opportunity

Pop into school on your way home if you have a chance and introduce yourself. I will be in Room 15 until 5.30pm Wednesday and Thursday evenings in Week one.


Community Picnic

This year, Berkley is approaching the Meet-the-Teacher evening a little differently. On Thursday in Week two (9th February), Tainui is holding a team picnic evening, outside our classrooms. You are invited to bring a picnic dinner for your family to eat, and meet other members of Room 15 and our team, Tainui. This will be at 5.30pm, then at 6.30, parents will have an opportunity to attend a short presentation by our Principal, Nathan Leith. There is more information available in the Korero.


I hope to meet you, at some stage over these two weeks.
