Kia Ora Whanau!

We hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing break from school over the last few weeks. We have been busy having the buildings washed down and painting touched up, as well as upgrading our entire school ICT system. There has been lots going on behind the scenes!

We would like to thank all our parents and community for attending our student-led conferences at the end of Term 1. We have worked hard to make connections with EVERY parent- our goal was to have 100% response to the conference invitation letter. Whilst we fell a little short of this goal, 90% of parents did respond, which was a significant increase on the 2017 figure. Even if you feel your child is doing well at school, remember that conferences are a special occasion for our students, when they get to share their learning to an audience of the 2 key people in their lives- parent and teacher. Please give your child the opportunity to celebrate their learning with you in this forum. If you have not yet made an appointment, please contact your classroom teacher who will be happy to organise some time for you.

Parenting with Pio Tuesday 29th May

We are excited to be hosting this parenting evening with Pio Terei. Pio’s appearances as a comedian, actor, radio show host, musician and performer over the last decade have established him as one of New Zealand’s most popular television and radio entertainers.

Of his involvement with The Parenting Show, Pio says, “When a group of people get together and make a conscious decision to improve their parenting skills, there is a ripple effect that begins to impact on the immediate family, the community and eventually the whole country. For me personally, it’s great to be in a room of people who want to make a difference and just enjoy the buzz. The Parenting Show is a fun, informative presentation that enables people to soak up information in a comfortable non-threatening environment – it is that simple. Over the last few years I have visited all sorts of different communities around the country and every time I do a presentation, I learn something new from the people I meet. I am inspired by the passion shown by parents of all types and backgrounds to improve their whanau life”.

Pio and his wife Debbie have three – as he puts it – ‘full on’ boys that are the centre of all they do. Of Nga Puhi and Te Rarawa descent, Pio’s passion for New Zealand is deep seated. He is sought after as an MC and keynote speaker for corporate events and community functions. “Bringing up kids well and having fun with them is just the best thing you can do.”
