Kia Ora Tatou, Greetings to all


Dear Parents

Parent Consultation Week
151 parents attended the in-class reading sessions and 119 attended the consultation sessions. For the senior leadership team and team leaders, it was wonderful to meet parents and deepen our partnership with the parent community. The parent consultation presentations and handouts for each year level can be found on our school website on the Parent Consultation Week tab.

Developing Our Students Strengths
Our children over the term have been involved in a variety of learning experiences that enhance each child’s learning potential. These experiences have included students participating in a range of competitions such as cross-country, speech competitions and ‘Kids Sing’. Congratulations, to all our contestants, in particular to our school chamber choir who recently won a silver medal in the ‘Kids Sing’ Auckland competition.

DOT DAYS (Development of Talent) will be held on 24 and 25 September
Every child has unique talents and strengths that should be encouraged to flourish within the school environment. Once a year there is a school-wide, two-day event during which students have opportunities to develop their talents in focused workshops. Teachers incorporate enrichment approaches, such as those of Renzulli and Howard Gardner, into their programmes. This is a fun time at school and we are all looking forward to it.


Warm regards

Jane Cavanagh-Eyre
