Family Picnic

Tuesday the 19th February, 5:30- 7:30 on the school field.
Tau Hou hari 新年快乐,
Welcome back to a new academic year!
The holiday break has passed rapidly, and it seems like only yesterday that we were
farewelling the 2018 graduates, and wishing one another ‘Merry Christmas’. Aside from welcoming Ms Tineke Oed, who will be working with our newest entrants to Pigeon Mountain in Room 5, we begin 2019 with the same wonderful teachers and staff as those who ended the 2018 year.
This year promises to be a significant one in the world of education. As well as the ongoing industrial situation between the Ministry of Education and the teacher unions, the government recently published their review of the Tomorrow Schools model. This review has wide reaching implications for education in NZ and for our local schools, in particular. In the footsteps of some of our neighbouring schools, the Pigeon Mountain board will this week publish a response to the raft of recommendations, and seek your support in lending your voice on the ongoing consultation.
Finally, we wish all our students the best wishes for their learning in 2019 and
remind them to demonstrate the 4 school values at all times - Responsibility,
Resilience, Respect and Excellence.
Ian Dickinson, Principal.

Welcome to Pigeon Mountain School

We are a large Decile 8 contributing State Primary School catering for students from Year 0 – 6

Primary Years Toolbox Course

March 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm $75.00

What you will learn

In six sessions, typically run over six weeks, the Primary years Toolbox will support you to develop a strong and loving bond with your child, and build your confidence as a parent/caregiver. This Toolbox covers a range of topics, including the importance of love and connection, different parenting styles, understanding your child and their big feelings, discipline, boundaries, play and lots more.

This is a new and more specific version of our Middle Years Toolbox.  This course is aimed specifically at parents of children 5 – 9 years.

Topics covered

Session 1             Love is the foundation
Session 2             Parents
Session 3             Stronger, deeper, closer
Session 4             Heart-led parenting
Session 5             Discipline without shouting, force or fluster
Session 6             Putting it all together

Cost and payment

The cost is $75 per person or $110 per couple. However, our desire is that cost would never be a barrier, and we’d still love you to join us if you’re unable to contribute in this way. There are many other valuable ways to contribute – like bringing a cake to share, or helping pack up. Get in touch, and we’ll get you booked in. Please click on the link below to register.
