Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 8

We are nearly there! Only a few days to go. Please read the important details below. In this post:

  • Corsair Bay trip.
  • Year 8 pool and pizza party
  • Leaver's assembly
  • Year 7 final day and classes for 2022

Corsair Bay:

At the end of this post, there is a social story that we shared with the children today. It would be good to review this at home.

For this trip to Corsair Bay tomorrow (Thursday) your child needs:

  • to wear school uniform
  • sunhat
  • sunscreen
  • water bottle and lunch (they can arrange a shared lunch with friends, and this would need to be nut free)
  • mask for on the bus
  • togs and towel (best to wear togs under their uniform)
  • a warm jacket
  • optional: wetsuit, book, game (non-electronic), drawing book, sunglasses
Phones will be left at school. We will be leaving school at 11am and will be back by 3pm. 

Year 8 Pool and Pizza Party

On Monday Dec 13th we are hosting a pool and pizza party for our Year 8s. This will be held at Liz May's home in Cashmere. The best way to get there is to park on Dyers Pass Road by Cashmere Primary and walk through the school, down past the tennis courts. Liz will put a sign by the back gate. The street address is 79 Dyers Pass Road. They have a lovely outdoor pool and also access to the school playground. Drop off is at 4pm and pick up at 6pm sharp.

Leavers' assembly - check Hero for details.

Last day for Year 7

The Year 7s finish for the year at 12:40 on Wednesday, Dec 15th. That morning they will find out their classes for 2022. We have had a bit of a shuffle around and many will find that they are with a new home-group teacher and with a different group of children. Much thought has gone into putting groups together so that the children have at least one person they relate well with and that the combinations are as harmonious as possible. Throughout the week there are many times when the children work with different teachers and combinations of other children: maths, literacy, passions, technology, etc. We have been talking about embracing change positively at school and would appreciate you also setting your child up for success. 

We also plan to have some water play that morning, with a slip and slide and water fight. Togs, sunscreen and a water propelling device (drink bottles are great) would be the order of the day.
