Week 10:

Sorry about the late delivery of this nesletter but the power outage has caused all kinds of delays.

This week is the last week of our school year. Student-Led Conferences last week were held so students could talk about their progress and achievements for 2016. It was lovely to see family/whānau here being led through the conferences and celebrating learning.

Please remember to send the year 4 & 5 Portfolios For Assessment back to school. They will be used in term 1 of 2017 to link learning.

Our team will have our Privilege Day on Thursday at the Adventure Playground. Come and join us for lunch if you can.

Below is an invitation to our final assembly for the year on Friday. This is the last day of school for all students this Xmas.jpg

Merry Christmas

Happy New Year
