End of Year Reports 

The end of year summary reports are now available through the Hero portal for children who are in Georgia, Elizabeth and Stacey's Home Groups. The end of year report reflects aspects of your child's learning for the second part of the year. Please take the time to sit with your child and share their report with them, celebrating their learning. 

To find your child's report; open Hero, click on their name, then click '2023 report'. If you need any help accessing the report through Hero, please contact your child's Home Group teacher.

Koru Waiata performance for families

We would like to invite our Koru families and Whānau to come and watch our Koru tamariki (children) perform the waiata we have been learning with Whaea Cath. 

  • Friday 8th of December, 2.45pm; outside our classroom (Hangere)

We would love the help of any whānau with sorting resources, cleaning whiteboards, tidying shelves and cupboards. If you are available to help, we would love to hear from you! 'We Get There Together'

We would also love your help to check at home for any Library books and Literacy books to return to school. We appreciate your help with this.

Every Friday, we visit our school Library. This is a time to sit and enjoy some fabulous books, listen to stories and get two books out each week to take home.

Our word of the week is: Determination. Determination is never giving up, no matter what! A determined person decides to do something, and then does it! How have you shown determination today by trying again and again? 

Here are some photos of Koru children showing their determination when learning new things!

Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou,
