Week 4, Term 2

Hi Everyone,

Another week of exciting learning has flown by! We have been working on a collaborative art piece for our foyer this week so make sure you ask your child about the planes we have been making. An expert hard materials teacher came in to assist us with this learning and it has been very exciting developing some new skills. We will add some photos of this process next week.

As you know, we have our official school opening ceremony on Thursday next week. Families are welcome so please RSVP to Karma at the office by Tuesday if you intend to come.

Below are some photo highlights for you to enjoy.

Week 3, Term 2

Welcome to Zaria, Will, Ben, Phoenix, Madison and all our Learning Common students and families,

We are excited about how our students are progressing academically and socially.  This term we are finishing our Inventive Thinking inquiry, the children are working on creating some interactive spaces to work in, planning a Zoo trip as the children have expressed an interest in animals, this will form one of our provocations.  Some students are involved in creating a cafe/library area to welcome the community and children into those areas.  Lastly we have a group who is developing PE equipment that they are particularly keen to explore or use to enhance their Motor skills.  

Thank you to the parents who attended our recent parent workshops, we will be running some more workshops in a couple of weeks time.  If you have any ideas for workshops that you would like us to run please let us know.  We are keen to explore how you might be able to support the running of our workshops.  If you would like to observe how we do this and how you might support please let one of us know and we can organise this for you.

We will be having a toy day on Wednesday 5 June.  We ask that the children do not bring toys other than the toy days that we organise, as this can create issues for some students.

Some of our children have joined local sports clubs for the Winter.  We will have an update on other sporting opportunities that the children can be apart of school, after a team of us have worked with North harbour Sports to develop an action plan for our school.
