Daily Announcements

School is now closed for the year. Have a great break and I look forward to seeing you all back in 2019.

School Office reopens between 29th January until 1st February-hours are 10am till 2pm.

I trust that you are all enjoying the fine weather and have had a well-deserved rest with family and friends.

This is just an update and notice of a few things.

Building: There are a variety of maintenance and small construction jobs being carried out at the moment so please avoid the areas where builders are working.

Pool: The pool is still looking good and getting plenty of use. Don’t forget to fully supervise your children and ensure that they leave the changing rooms and toilets clean.

Library: The library will be open again on Tuesday 22nd for those of you who would like to swap or issue books. This will be open in the afternoon.

Meet the Teacher: Please mark the 31st of January into your diary. We are having our pre start up meet the teacher evening at school, from 4pm till 6pm. This is an informal and social occasion where you and your children can visit classrooms and teachers, touch base with friends and hopefully remove some of the anxieties of returning to school. We will have the Families in Parks facilities on the field as well.

Stationery Lists: Please visit the website for your stationery list. Parents of Junior students (Rooms 11-15) please use the Junior Syndicate list and ignore that it says Rooms 11 & 12 when you open it. Also, there is no requirement for the $20 levy. We will upload the correct version on Monday. Apologies for that error.

Finally, a reminder that school restarts on Thursday 7th February.

Summer building programme: As you are aware we have several building projects planned for our school, all of which will begin in the summer holidays. One of those projects includes major works to Rooms 1 to 4 in the senior area of the school. Because of capacity issues all classrooms around the school will be occupied with full classes from the first day of term and the future occupants of those rooms will be housed in different classrooms during Term 1.

This means that once the works are complete we will need to shift classes around, and this affects a lot of students. Our new entrants who begin in Term 1 are most likely going to need to be reorganized once we have all of our rooms back.

Whilst the plan is that the works will be completed for the start of term 2, there is a chance they will continue beyond that date and we have a plan to cater for that. There is no way of avoiding these works which are required of us by the Ministry of Education, but we will attempt to minimize the disruption to school programmes. Ultimately we will have improved facilities as a result.

We will continue to give you full updates as we go along and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
