Stand united, stand strong!

Kia Ora Tatou, Greetings to all

A very warm welcome to our new students and parents. We are now in our final term for 2016 and it has been an amazing learning journey for us all so far.

ENPS Staff Only Day
The ENPS Staff only day will be held on Tuesday, 25th October. The school will be closed on this day and our staff members will be participating in professional development.

A warm welcome to Huda Parvez who is teaching our newest New Entrants in R.24.

Our Learning Programmes – Developing Our Student Strengths

Term 3’s DOT Days
All students had the opportunity to grow in their strengths at the end of last term during the hugely successful DOT Days. Students were ‘the makers’, not consumers, as they cultivated their creativity during these workshops. Already students have been discussing the possibilities for the 2017 DOT Days.

The School-Wide Learning Theme for Term 4 is ‘I am a Performer’
Students throughout the school will be learning about the important elements of dance, singing, mime and drama through this term’s topic ‘I am a Performer’. Thinking in the mind of a performer, students will explore ways to express their thoughts, feelings and cultural stories. By walking in the shoes of a performer they will craft and share their creations through the performing arts. We are pleased to welcome Ezra Bush from Dances For School. Ezra will be working with all of our students as our ‘Dancer in Residence’ during this term.

The school will be holding two productions in Week Eight and Week Nine of this term. Further notices will be released shortly with more detailed information.
