2018 Learning Theme: Together We Are Strong
Kia ngãtahi ai te tu
E pakari ai te tuarã
Stand united, stand strong!
Kia ora tatou, Greetings to you all
At ENPS, we believe that providing children with opportunities to be imaginative and creative is an essential part of growing a culture of innovation within our school. A great deal of creative work, especially in the early stages of a child’s development allows them to explore ideas, improvise and discover new possibilities.
The quality that we see in our children’s work is a result of the process of interweaving knowledge, making new connections and exploring a range of different perspectives. We are a highly creative school and we acknowledge the importance of allowing our children to take risks, discover new things and develop their own thinking. We believe that there are no “silly” questions and no “right” answers. We are a school that values enjoyment, dynamic learning experiences and individuality.
Term 3 is coming to a successful end and there has been a great deal of collaboration and innovative learning as part of our topic ‘I am a Polyglot.’ I would like to express my sincere thanks to our parent community for the strong partnership you help to foster between home and school. Without your support and enthusiasm, events such as our Cultural Day and sports exchanges would not be possible. ENPS has achieved outstanding results in gymnastics, rugby and cross country zones this term.
Term 4 is going to be inspiring, as we celebrate the work of our artists of the year in the topic “I am an Artist”. Children will work alongside our artist in residence, Collin Gibbs, to create a range of artworks to showcase at our Art Exhibition in Week 6 on Friday, 23 November. Further information will be sent home closer to the event. I extend a warm invitation to all parents to participate in our learning throughout the term.
Have a restful and enjoyable break with your children over the holiday period.
