Kia ora e te whānau
Tēnā Koutou Katoa,
Term 3 is well underway and the school has been abuzz with lots of excitement and laughter, despite some dreary and chilly days!
Our learning focus for the term - Community - has seen our junior learners venture out of Hub Rima and around the school to learn more about our school community and what some of our staff do around the school to help keep them safe, happy and healthy.
Have a great rest of the week and a wonderful weekend.
Ngā mihi nui,
Sarah and The Stonefields School Team

Manaiakalani Whānau Survey
We would value your time in completing the Manaiakalani whānau survey. The data from these surveys is compiled with the rest of the Manaiakalani cluster of schools, and this is a big focus for the Manaiakalani Research Team this term. To learn more about Manaiakalani please click here.
Out of Zone Siblings
While Stonefields School does not accept out-of-zone enrolments we do try, where possible, to allow out-of-zone new entrant siblings of currently enrolled learners to be at school together. Each year our School Board looks at the current and predicted roll to determine if we are in a position to continue to make this exception. If you are a current parent of the school and have an out-of-zone pre-schooler due to start school in 2022, please email Sarah (firstname.lastname@example.org) before Friday 20th August so that the Board can come to a decision as to whether or not a new-entrant only ballot is feasible.
