Terrace End School is a friendly school in the city of Palmerston North. We enjoy a diverse range of ethnicities giving our curriculum an authentic richness.

Daily Five provides the foundation for our reading and writing. This programme builds stamina as well as a clear development of strategies to develop reading skills. As writing, reading and maths are our core curriculum areas much of the morning programme relates to these areas.

Inquiry Learning supports the contextual and conceptual learning at Terrace End School. Once a week we enjoy learning through Discovery, enabling our children to develop skills through exploration and play.

Our children participate in Te Reo and the Kapa Haka participates in Pae Tamariki.

We are a Positive Behavior for Learning school (PB4L school).

Kia ora Whanau. We are in Level 2 again. Below are the reminders that support our school Safety Plan

There is a strong focus on playing it safe and good hygiene practices.

School Access: In Alert Level 2, we ask all parents and visitors to the school grounds to sign in or scan at the office.

Gates: The Ruahine st driveway gates are opened 8.20 and closed at 9.00am. Wharenui Terrace and Kauri Street Gates will open at 8.30 am and closed at 9.00am. Late children must sign in via the office with a whanau member.

At the end of the day, 2.45, the Children will wait at the pickup points

The Ruahine St gates will be opened at 2.30 and you may park in the carpark area. Your child will come to the pickup area and hop into your car. This means you will not need to sign in.

Gates : closed at 3.00 and late pickups will be from the foyer. Children walking home are asked to leave following the end of the day at 2.45 pm. Our gates will be closed after 3.00 pm.

Supervision: We can provide you with numbers for businesses that will welcome your child in after or before school care. Our school hours are 8.20 - 3.00 pm.

Administration / Office. If you need to come to school, you must complete the tracing register in the office. Please use physical distancing in our office area and queue 1 metre apart.

Classrooms: Classrooms will be opened at 8.20.

Should your child become unwell they will be asked to come to the sickbay and we will contact a family member to pick them up. If there is anything that may suggest Covid 19, under Alert level two guidelines, the children must return home immediately and they will need to be tested. Results need to provided.

An Alert level 2 school environment means children and staff are maintaining a physical distance so they are not breathing on or touching each other, coupled with good hygiene practices (coughing in your elbow, handwashing and drying, and regular cleaning of commonly touched surfaces.)

Food at Level 2 (as at all levels), your child will require their food and drink in clearly named lunchboxes and drink bottles. Children are not able to share their food or drink bottles.

Communication: Please watch Facebook and the TES website as this is where we post our communications for our school community. We will also try and use emails, however, sometimes these are unavailable.

He moana pukepuke e ekengia e te waka. A choppy sea can be navigated.

We look forward to seeing your tamariki at school this week. Ka kite Ano
