Tena koutou,
As we are always pro-active in our care of your children we are trialling a new system
to support students who have been seen at the school office for a playground injury.
Each child who is checked by the office staff for an injury will receive an information
slip to show to their classroom teacher. This slip will come home with your child so
that you are aware of the injury. This new system only applies to minor injuries. For
serious injuries we will contact you at the time.
Thank you to all those parents who returned the sausage survey so promptly. If you
still have one at home please send it back completed tomorrow. The sausages were
certainly popular and went like hotcakes.
To be a community of quality
learners, nurturing our values of
Citizenship, Achievement,
Thank you also for the great turn out to the Learning Conferences. It is wonderful that
we have such positive support from parents. I have had a number of parents report to
me how impressed they are with our students’ ability to talk about their learning and
progress. Please check that your child returns their Learningfolio before the holidays
as they are needed for planning Term 3 programmes.

Gentry has done a fantastic job of team teaching with Emma and we
appreciate her work in ensuring that Room 26 students have had continued
quality teaching and learning during term 2. I would like to thank all the staff
