BOARD OF TRUSTEES UPDATE...
Kia ora tatou. The Board of Trustees would like to thank every parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent and everyone in between for your support this term. The personal sacrifice that each of you make to give our children opportunities outside the classroom is duly noted. You are all fantastic! On the IT front, could I please remind you all to take a minute to two out of your day to see what your child is doing on Newbury’s ultranet. Your child shares some pretty special work there for you to see, and the odd comment (or two) from Mum and Dad is really motivating. If you have any issues with logging on, please contact Lesley at the Office.
As you are aware, Nick Rate’s first day with us is Monday 20 July (Day 1, Term 3). We will be having a powhiri for Nick, beginning at 9am and finishing with a morning tea. Mark your diaries now, as we would like you to join us in welcoming Nick. Not only will this be a special occasion for Nick, your children will have a part to play in this new experience too. More information will come out before the school holidays.
Finally, we would like to acknowledge Jo Wishnowsky for the fantastic job she has done as Principal this term. Jo stepped up to this leadership role without hesitation and the feedback we have received has been outstanding. Thank you for all of your hard work Jo; we look forward to seeing you develop further.
We are coming to the end of what has been an extremely busy term. I think you will agree that the children (and teachers/parents!) are due for a holiday. Have a safe and relaxing break… Tena koutou katoa.
Nick, Juana, Mathew, Tracey, Reegan, Scott, Jo
