Learning • Fun • Friendship
Students working with Mr Ashcroft wrote and produced the film "The day we stopped bullying" for the Kaipātiki Public Arts Trust 'Short Shorts' film competition, and have been judged the 2018 winners for the primary school category!
Well done Angelo, Cairo, Nikola, Kauê, Asher, Rajko, Zak, and Thomas.
You can watch the movie on our school YouTube channel.
Notices for week commencing 15th October:
Welcome back to our final term of the year. I trust that you enjoyed some quality time with your children and made the most of the settled spring weather.
Term Four begins with an Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) focus for years 3-6. We have staggered the weeks this year so that if you have children in both syndicates you can join them at times that suit. Our children really enjoy these weeks and get a lot out of the activities that they do, particularly in terms of developing confidence and trying new things.
Our Year Six students head “overseas” to Kawau Island for their camp experience and the Year Five group have a range of activities planned around the local area. Similarly the Middle Syndicate have an interesting programme planned, both within the school as well as some trips. Watch out for further information about this from your teachers and team leaders.
The other major aspect to this term is the fare welling of our students who will complete their sixth year at Kauri Park School. This is always a bitter sweet time for both our staff and students and it is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye. Over the six years that your children are with us we get to know them incredibly well. We watch them enter the school as (often) a nervous 5 year old and very quickly gaining confidence to the point that they become an integral part of the school fabric-running assemblies and helping younger students with their reading and writing. We try to give them a wide range of experiences and opportunities during their time here and always take pride as we continue to follow their school journey.
Swimming Pool: Mr. Allen has begun the preparation for the new swimming season. We will open for school use only first and this will be dependent on the weather. We will let you know when children can begin bringing their togs. In the meantime you can put your name down for a key. This can be done at the office, or preferably by email to : email@example.com
Please put Swimming Pool Key in the subject line.
