Week 2, Term 3 Newsletter

28th July 2023


Kia ora Clive whānau,

It is lovely to have everyone back after the holidays with the classrooms all a hive of activity.

It has been a busy few weeks with lots of winter illness taking its toll on both students and staff. We thank you for your understanding when we are short staffed and having to juggle cover in classrooms and our administration.

We are excited to welcome everyone to the FOS Matariki Disco and Lantern walk tomorrow evening. Hopefully the weather will play its part and our lanterns can all go on display. A reminder that Students need to bring a named drink bottle (not glass) with water only please.
The disco starts at 5:30 with parents asked to be in the hall at 7:15 for collection at 7:30. Please note: No children will be permitted to leave the hall without a parent or guardian present.

Have a lovely weekend and stay warm!

Noho ora mai

A reminder that we have a Māori whānau hui taking place in Room 8 starting at 5:45 pm on Friday night (28th July). Drop your tamariki at the disco, then head on over.

Additionally there will be some wider community consultation questions and activities in Room 9 from 5:30 that we would love your input on.

Anyone is welcome to attend either event.
