Newsletter No.8 Term 2 3rd July 2020
We will remember Term 2, 2020 forever as the post-Covid one.
We wish our pupils a restful time with Whanau and friends. We wish good health for families.
Today we have sent home our assessment and message to each pupil. Some pupils have a letter instead. This explains how continuous absences have prevented a progress report.
We remind you that at any time, you can make arrangements to have an appointment to talk more with the teacher or management.
This week has been a week of school meeting with some of you and in all cases, the comment included…
“Thanks for giving us time to ask questions and listen to what the school is doing for our child and we weren’t rushed!”
One mum said ”I listen to other parents. Now I’m going to tell them, why don’t you go to school and find out .”
Next term, Term 3, begins on Monday 20th July and ends on Friday 25th September.

Message from our support worker in school (SWiS), Angela O’Connell.
I’m Angela O’Connell and I’m loving my new position here. While the pupils see me in the playground and in their classes, I don’t know the families yet.
I can offer support for your family any time, but if times are stressful and grief is part of your journey, I’m here to listen and support. If sourcing a food parcel is important, or if someone in the family has lost a job, is finding it challenging and not knowing how to seek the most effective support, call me on 021 428 593. Our conversations are always confidential.
