Dear Parents and Friends of the School,
A big welcome back to Term 2, especially to our new families. Once again, COVID is having an impact on our staffing and with our students’ attendance. Thank you for notifying us of your circumstances and for keeping your children home if they are not feeling well.
We have welcomed back Mrs Naera from maternity leave and Mrs Morrison is also back with the roll growth class. It is wonderful to have both these talented teachers back.
I would like to remind you that next Friday 20 May is our Teacher Only Day as part of the NZEI accord. Then on Friday 3 June there will be another Teacher Only Day with all the teachers from the peninsula meeting at TGS for professional development.
To our new families, if you would like to join the PTA they would welcome you with open arms. Their next meeting is Wednesday 25th May at 7.30pm in the staffroom. Please see the PTA newsletter below in this email.
Tomorrow (Friday) Room 18 (Yr 3) are presenting their class item to the whole school in the hall. We had our first full school singing assembly in the hall last Friday since August 8, 2021. 9 months. Please feel most welcome to attend this certificate assembly and view Room 18’s item. There will also be a special guest performing for us. We ask all Year 4-6 students to wear a mask as we have a lot of people in the hall. Parents we ask the same of you, could you please wear a mask (unless you have an exemption).
