Final Post from the Koru Team

 Kia ora e te whānau,

It feels very hard to believe that here we all are, at the very end of the 2023 school year. Your children have all settled so beautifully into life at school this year, and their learning has been impressive, to say the least. 

It's been very exciting for us as teachers, and you too, we're sure, to witness the social, emotional and physical progress, as well as the progress in academic learning that the children have all made since starting at school. What a wonderful group of tamariki they are! We're going to miss them terribly over the long summer holiday, and will be looking forward to seeing them back again (mostly as members of the Kahikatea team), with their beautiful smiles at the start of next year.

Thank you all so much for the unstinting support you have given both your children and the teachers this year. Their progress would not have been such as it is, without your backup on the home front. You can be absolutely certain that we have appreciated this enormously!

Final two days:

Please do ensure that you check that you have all of your child's belongings, before leaving on Tuesday:

  • all clothing, including sunhat, polar fleece and socks 
  • their lunchbox and drink bottle (there are often drink bottles left behind on the last day!)
  • and any other personal items belonging to your child.
If, by chance, we don't see you before the end of the year, we do wish you all a very safe and happy summer holiday. It has been an absolute pleasure to have had you and your children as members of the Koru team in 2023!

All best for 2024, and we'll catch up with you in the new year, either in the playground or if you're able to pop in and say 'hi', that would be wonderful too.

Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou,
Elizabeth, Stacey, Georgia and Sarah
