From the Principal

Kia ora

This is our last newsletter for the year. What a year it has been!

My thanks to you all for sending your children to school in the right frame of mind and with an eagerness to learn. Teachers value the relationship they have with you. Educating your children is absolutely a team effort. We do our bit and you do your bit. Together we do a great job. So once again - thank you.

2022 Classes and Teachers

Next year we have some additional staffing. We hope to open an eighth class in the second half of the year. Exactly where will depend upon where our bulges are, although we hope this class will be in the junior school.

Sadly and for the first time in many years we will not be having a bilingual class. Despite advertising twice, no suitably qualified or experienced teachers applied for the position. We intend to advertise the position next year for 2023.

2021 Prizegiving

On Tuesday we held our annual prize giving. It was disappointing that we couldn’t open the ceremonies to all of you to attend and I have to tell you that the Ministry of Education made it very clear that we could not safely hold a prize giving.

The ceremonies were great opportunities to acknowledge the hard work and effort of all our students. I have printed below the list of awardees. Congratulations.

Finally, have a great break over the holiday season and we look forward to seeing you all again on Monday 31 January.
