Dear Parents, Guardians &Caregivers
Welcome back everybody! We are now half way through the school year and looking forward to a busy Term 3. A warm welcome to our new students who are joining us in Term 3.
Thank you to all the parents who helped out last term; whether it is helping out with transport on a school trip, managing a team on sports days, coaching, helping the teacher out. Fa’fetai Lava! We really appreciate parents taking time out of their schedules to help.
It was wonderful to see such a great turn out at parent interviews. Remember you are welcome to contact your child/ren’s teacher at any time to discuss how your child is doing. Teachers are available in their classrooms from 8am to 8.30am or alternately feel free to email the office and this will be passed on to the teacher. Communication between parents and teacher’s is very important and we all want the same thing, the very best for your child.

All senior students, Year 5 to 8 were given information about their science fair project and it is great that some students already have their projects underway. The Science Fair is in five weeks and students will have some time to work on it during class time but will also need to work on it at home. Projects need to be completed by Wednesday the 16th August.
· All students to bring sports shirts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
· All students to be at school before 8.30am, there are too many students arriving late and missing out on the start of lessons.
· All students to be picked up promptly by 2.30pm unless students have tutoring or homework club. Pre-School students to be picked up at 1.30pm.
Thank you again for your support.
