The end of another term.

This term has felt even busier than usual with Kaikville, Book Week, reports, parent-teacher interviews and throw in the usual winter sickness bugs means that the students and teachers are ready for a well-earned break. We hope that you get to spend some time together as a family over the school holiday and that your child comes back refreshed for term 3.

It doesn't slow down next term as we turn our focus to creating our biennial production. This year the production theme is on our 150-year celebration, and we will also be preparing to turn the school into a museum as part of the reunion celebration over Labour Weekend in Term 4.

We bid farewell to Ryan Inglis and wish him all the very best for his new career at the Southern District Health Board, and we welcome back Susan Oldfield who after six months off, has returned to start our latest new entrant class in Room 11. The children are fortunate to have such an experienced set of hands getting them off to a great start.

Finally, thank you to all the parents who attended the recent interviews. Between the interviews and the reports, we hope that you have a better understanding of where your child is at in their social and academic learning and what the next step is for them.

To all of the students and staff, have a great break!

Kind regards

Simon Clarke
