Welcome back to Term 4
We welcomed Anna Pryor on to our staff this term. Anna has started our last year 0 class for 2016.
The staff and students enjoyed celebrating the start of the last term of the year with our annual Greats and Grans morning on Friday 21st October. It was exciting for our students to be able to share their learning with people who are special to them and all the students took pleasure from having the visitors in their rooms. We had over 300 visitors in the school during the morning and it was lovely to see so many meeting up for morning tea in the hall. Thank you to everyone who supported this event.
There are a number of important events planned for Term 4 including our Athletic Sports on Thursday 27th October, the annual year 8 camp in the National Park 14th - 18th November, end of year celebration events for teams the week of 5th December, the Sports Awards Assembly on the 6th December and our very special Final Assembly on the 16th December. Please keep reading the newsletter so you are well informed about what is happening in our busy school.
Term 4 is a very important term for the school in preparation and planning for the following school year. If you have a pre-schooler in the family who will be starting at Kohimarama school in 2017 we would appreciate the enrolment forms being completed as soon as possible, or at least the process started, as it helps in our planning for classroom spaces and staffing needs throughout 2017.
