Koru Term 3 Week 2

Kia Ora and welcome to Term 4.

We have welcomed our Senior Students back to the Beckenham site this term.  It has been wonderful to have them with us again, connecting and reconnecting with new and old friends.

Please remember that children need a hat at school every day in term 4.  We also encourage parents to apply sunscreen to children before school.  We have tubs of sunscreen at school if needed during the day.


Keeping Ourselves Safe  - Information for parents and whanau.
For the next five weeks our school will be engaging in the 'Keeping Ourselves Safe' programme.  Please click on the link above for all the information you will need to know about this programme.

Keeping Ourselves Safe [KOS] consists of a comprehensive range of child protection resources to help students learn and apply a range of safety skills that they can use when interacting with others. 

During weeks 3 and 4 Constable Ross will visit our classrooms and take 2 of the sessions.  We really appreciate the help of the Police in developing these resources and their support in the teaching and learning programme.

If you have any further questions please visit the website or, alternatively ask your child's teacher.

Thank you St.MartinsNew World - Every day a new world
and our wonderful school Community

What a treat to receive gifts of well over 500 Little Gardens from St Martins New World and our school community.  The children have planted the Little Gardens and shared them throughout the school.  We really appreciate your generosity and kindness.  We have a raised bed outside the back of the West Wing that we can use for the seedlings when they are mature enough.  How exciting!  Thank you.

"Dear New World,

Thank you for giving us so many Little Gardens.  We are so lucky.  We both love you. Our favourite Little Gardens are water melons, swan plants, butternut, sweetcorn and tomatoes.
As always, stay happy!  We love strawberries!

From Isla and Lilian."
