It is hard to believe we are almost at the end of Term 1 for 2021. We hope you had a wonderful Easter break and got to spend quality time with loved ones.
Have a wonderful rest of your week and a happy and safe weekend.

Save the Date - Learner Led Conferences
When: Thursday, 27th May 2021
Important - School will be finishing at 1pm on Thursday, 27th May. All learners are to be collected at 1.00pm or booked into Kelly Club for afterschool care.
What is a Learner Led Conference?
Learner Led Conferences (LLC) take place in Term 2, this is an opportunity for you to be led by your child to understand what they are learning, how they are going and what their next learning steps are. During the 40-60 minute conference, a Hub teacher will share a 10 minute progress update with you. New to LLCs? - click here to learn more.
A reminder that the LLCs are not for Year 0 children, that is learners who start at the beginning of Term 2. Instead, you will have a 5-7 week connect with one of your child's hub teachers.
Pōwhiri - Welcome to New Families
When: Monday, 3rd May | 9.15am.
Details: Our whole school will be formally welcoming our new learners joining Stonefields School in Term 2 (those starting at the beginning of the Term as well as mid Term) with a Pōwhiri. You are most welcome to join us, please gather on the courts at 9.10am. Our new families will meet at the front of the school (next to the school office) at 9.10am.
Following the Pōwhiri at approx 10.00am, we will have refreshments for our visitors in the staff hub upstairs, we would love you to join us.
Unfortunately, we have had confirmation that Ragtagd is no longer in operation. Therefore, no scanning of jumpers placed in the lost property cupboard is taking place and text messages to parents are not being sent.
With the help of a wonderful parent volunteer, the lost property cupboard is currently being sorted through and any named items are being returned to learners in their Hubs. There are however a lot of unnamed items currently in lost property.
There will be a lost property table set up outside the hall alongside Friday cafe tomorrow, Friday 9th April. If your child/ren are missing any items, please come along tomorrow after school.
Eastern Zones TAG Tournament
As our PE programme often takes place outside, we recommend that learners wear trainers on PE days for their comfort and safety. As the weather turns colder and wetter, we suggest that learners bring a change of socks with their school shoes for after PE and make sure they have their fleece / a rain jacket with them.
