At last night's board meeting a range of reports were tabled outlining progress on a number of initiatives to do with the teaching and learning of reading and maths as well as the whole school development areas of Te Reo and Tikanga Māori. Two achievement reports in relation to 6 year old literacy and Reading Recovery were also discussed. We would like to acknowledge the work the staff are continually undertaking to ensure our learners are supported and extended in their learning. There are a lot of events on this term which is a great opportunity for you to get out and support your children and celebrate in their successes at school. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible involved in our summer sports, athletics, 3 way conferences and next week's Ag Day.

The Newbury School Athletics Day will be held on Tuesday the 17th of November. We would love to see you there supporting your children who have been working exceptionally hard in class to improve their technique, strength and fitness so they can perform at their best.

A copy of the events rotation and an event map can be found in each classroom. These will also be available to you on the day.
We require eight parent helpers to assist in timing the running events and other management activities. We are also seeking four additional gazebos (for shade) and six chilli bins in which to keep the kids drinks cool.  
If you would like to be a parent helper, can supply a gazebo, or can loan a chilli bin please contact ScottB (room 6) or ScottH (room 4) before Monday the 9th of November.

If the event is postponed a notice will be posted on the Newbury website before 8am on the day. 

The postponement date is Thursday the 19th of November.
The school is now operating a Facebook page to enable up-to-date information to be easily shared with parents and whanau. Head over to and like us now!
