We’ve had a busy start to this term with Ruben The Road Safety Bear coming to visit the junior school a couple of weeks ago, starting our Enviro Mini Beast Garden research and getting our new fortnightly homework.


Please remember students in the Tui Room need to bring:

  • spelling notebook EVERYDAY
  • book bag EVERYDAY
  • library books by Friday each week
  • homework on DUE DATE
  • smile EVERYDAY


Our Term two will continue to be action packed!  We hope to see as many of the parents as possible for our speeches next Monday and Tuesday – 28th and 29th of May.  A notice went home tonight to let you know what day your child will be doing their speech on.  Please let me know if you will be coming to watch your child.


Also next week we have our Share The Learning afternoon and Community Assembly on Wednesday the 30th of May, again we’d really enjoy the company of all parents that are able to attend.  Student portfolio’s will also be going home on this day.
