Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 3

This week we are looking forward to interviewing for our 2020 House Captains and Student Council exec. It was great to get 18 applications for these positions.

If you have a Year 8 child, please check with them how they are going with sorting their own, their friend and their teacher memories. Many thanks to those Year 8 parents who have already sent in 'when I was 5' photos. I have 23 so far, which leaves 37 still to be emailed or brought into school for scanning.

Sexuality Education

As part of our health curriculum, we will be teaching 'Nagivating the Journey: Sexuality Education' to our Year 7 & 8 classes, starting from Tuesday of week 5, November 12th.  If you would like to find out what is involved in these lessons or have any questions, you are invited to attend a parent meeting in the staffroom on Monday November 11th, between 7 and 8pm. Please indicate on this form if you plan to attend.

Adult support with term 4 activities

Many thanks to the parents who have completed our form with requests of adult help for events that are planned for this term. If you have yet to do so, please click on this link.

We still need a couple of people to assist with athletics on Monday. This will be working alongside a teacher at a throwing event. Please email Jenny if you are available.

In addition, we are headed to Hillview Christian School to use their long jump pit this Friday and need a couple of extra adults to walk down with us. Please email Jenny if you are available to help out from 12:40. 

Athletic Sports Day

Next Monday, November 4th, is our whole school athletics day. Today we shared the following social story so that all children are well prepared to have a great day.
