TAMARIKI

OUTSTANDING

Kia ora whānau! Welcome back to an exciting Term 2

It is great to see everyone returning after the school holidays.  Tamariki are as energetic as ever, and we have already started with much excitement.  We do have a busy term ahead of us. Here are some highlights:

  • Swimming starts in Week 3 (14 May) and ends in Week 7 (13 Jun).  This is for all YR1-6 students and runs Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

  • Inter-school swimming happens on 14 Jun.  This is for YR4-6 students.

  • EnviroSchools continues, with all classes going out each day for 5 minutes after lunch to clean our kura of litter.  It's great to see everyone looking after our space.  YR4-6 will also get out of school for some street clean-ups, focusing on Strathmore Drive, St Andrews Drive green space, Lauriston Place and Rock Park. The first one planned for Monday 13 May.

Touring our Grounds

  • The Cook Islands trip happens this term, in Weeks 6-8 (5-19 Jun).  This is such an exciting opportunity to travel to Rarotonga and onto Mangaia to celebrate their bicentennial.  Miss Tereu, Mama Numia and Whaea Jennifer will be going, along with a big group of students and parents. Everyone returns to Tokoroa on Wed 19 June, but we do not expect tamariki going on this trip to be back until the following Monday (24 Jun), and that includes our staff, who we expect will be a little tired after such an amazing trip.  We all look forward to seeing the photos and hearing the stories. 

  • Matariki falls at the end of Term 2. As in previous years, we will have our third Matariki Whānau Brekkie. This will again be in the hall, in two sittings, and school will begin later that usual at 11am (after break).  A notice will come out about all of the details closer to the time.  We can guarantee that it will be a lovely time to connect and to eat.  We will also be asking you to give us your thoughts about our school crest, and some ideas of how it might better represent who we are today and who we aspire to be. 

  • School reports will be coming out at the end of this term.  These are paper reports, but you can also see your child's progress in reading, writing and maths, and their attendance, on the Hero App.  We recommend this app, as you can also receive classroom and personal notices from your child's teacher.
