Term 4 - What's on in Week 2?

Welcome back to Term 4. We trust you and your children had a relaxing and fun holiday. Term 4 is always a very busy term and this year is no exception!

Dates of note:

Thursday 15th October
  • Shake Out! Practice ( Earthquake drill) - your children did extremely well during this practice. Well done, Te Whanau Koru!
  • Hub Photos- These will be available for purchase if you would like to purchase one. Information will be sent home with your child.
Friday 16th October
  • Rugby World Cup Mufti day- what a wonderful day we all had! Children arrived at school wearing clothing with a french flavour (Hub 10 & 11) or (in Hub 12 & 13) shorts, t-shirts and jandals, as well as other Oz-related items!
Next Week:
  • Monday 19th Oct- Keeping Ourselves Safe parent info session will be held at 2:15- 3:00 p.m. in the Staffroom;

  • Saturday 24th October- School Centenary Day- Children will be performing their folk dances. Please ensure you have informed your teacher if your child is unable to attend.

PTA Calendar Fundraiser - your child's calendar art is now available to view in the office foyer. Children have put a great deal of effort into these works of art. They make beautiful Christmas presents for extended family members!

Sunhats - Please ensure that your child has a wide brimmed hat at school. All children must wear a hat during Term 4. Those who do not have a hat at school must play under the covered walkways or on the hall steps. It is also a great idea to ensure that your child has sunscreen on before coming to school.

Drink Bottles - Please ensure that your child has a bottle of water at school each day.

Friendship List - You will have received an email and link through to

our team Friendship List. A reminder that access to the link will close off at the end of the day on Tuesday. Adding your details to the list will ensure that play dates can continue over the long summer break!

Beckenham School Centenary - We are all looking forward to Labour Weekend and our Beckenham School Centenary! Please remember that classrooms are open for visiting, not only next Friday, but also on Saturday between 12 noon and 1 p.m. (a great opportunity for you to bring family members along to view the children's classrooms and the beautiful art work on display!).

First day at school - beautiful!

Les enfants Francais, creating works of art in the style of Claude Monet.

Hubs 10 and 11 had a fabulous French Friday, complete with croissants, petit pain au choclat et baguette avec camembert!

Friday took on an Australian flavour for the children in Hubs 12 and 13!
