We are presently preparing for Student Led Conferences (SLCs) to be held Monday, April 14 and Tuesday, April 15. We are looking forward to meeting with you all. Details of how to book these times are attached to this letter while background information about this process is linked in this introductory letter.
Please note that school will end at 12.30 on Monday, April 14.
We like celebrating the success of students both ‘within and outside’ the four walls of the classroom. Adam, in his first horse riding competition last weekend achieved the following amazing results: Best groomed & turned out – 1st; Best cantering – 2nd; Mount most suitable for beginner – 1st; Best combination – 2nd; Most suitable for jumping – 3rd; Best rider – 6th
The most surprising thing is that Adam has only been riding for six months and with 9-10 riders in each class (most older and more experienced), these accomplishments are even more satisfying. Adam says he was very nervous in the best trotting class and didn’t get any ribbon. Once his mum talked to him and told him to ignore the other horses, relax, trust his pony and just ride her like he does at home …he did well.
We are sensational 7. We picked our name last year when we met for the very first time. We love hector’s world-he taught us about being safe on the internet. Never give your real name or address to anyone. We read in the library every tuesday. Sonita even takes our groups there. Year 3’s are awesome because we get to take 5 books out now. We have been learning about people in our class in statistics. We found out that Frozen is our most popular movie. We are awesome. We like to learn heaps of stuff. We have a clean up song which is kiwi kids. We think we are the best class and we strive for excellence. Music with Jenny has been fun every Wednesday. Wednesdays are also awesome because we have cool buddies.
Well done everyone in Year 3-6 that took part in the school swimming sports at the Lido yesterday. Despite only having had just over a week of our own school pool use, it looked as though everyone managed their events with success. Chatting to one of the Lifeguards they were amazed how many ‘great’ swimmers there were! She was also amazed in the age of our crew! Congratulations to all children who not only swam with distinction, but also showed great sportsmanship and team support. We were all very proud of the efforts of all! A big thanks to all the parent helpers too.
If you’re a after a replay of the house group relay then look no further.
We look forward to seeing you all back Monday morning, February 3 in time for an 8.55 start. Learning spaces are looking magnificent and in particular, Poutama (R 11-14) has undergone a significant transformation. Another exciting year ahead!
