2nd February 2016
This is just a brief note to welcome everyone back to Kaimai for 2016. In room 3, nothing much has changed, apart from missing last years year 5’s! We have got two new students, Karma and Eden, who have joined us with great enthusiasm and have settled in wonderfully and Janneke MacDonald has also joined room 3.
Our swimming programme will be starting on Friday, our usual swimming days will be Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, although if enough children have their togs and the occasion arises, we may well swim on Monday and Wednesday as well. The KRSA swimming sports are to be held at Greerton pool on Tuesday, 23rd February. This is a lot earlier than usual, I will send a note home soon regarding offers of transport, but would appreciate it if you could mark it as a possibility on your calendars in the meantime. Our school swimming sports will be held on Thursday 10th March, you will get more information about this nearer the event.
There is a trip planned to the Tauranga art gallery, the children will go by bus to this, a benefit paid for by the council! Again, a notice will come out nearer the event.
Our Virtue for this term is purposefulness, so we are thinking about goal setting, along with a thinking about ‘rights, responsibilities and change’ in our study of the treaty of Waitangi and the effect it has had on the people of New Zealand.
It is lovely to see everyone back, I hope to catch up with you all at some point - speaking of which,
conferences will run between 21st March and 11th April. If you are available for parent help on any days, I would love to see you, either on a permanent, weekly basis or just as you are available. You can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or catch up with me in the classroom.
Enjoy the rest of the summer
