Week 2

We had a great first week fill of fun getting to know each other.
We are sure your children have come home every tired and hopefully not too overwhelmed.  

So what is happening this coming week:
  • Wednesday is Waitangi Day - so no school.
  • Swimming everyday, so please bring your togs.
  • We will be starting some testing around Maths and Literacy so that we can make sure we are providing the best for each individuals child's learning.
  • Assembly will be in week 3, and as stated in the newsletter will be in the afternoon.
  • Please make sure your child has a sun hat and sun screen each day.
  • We ask that stationery boxes stay at school, as last year children took them home and often forgot to bring them back for learning the next day. If there are books that need to go home we will send them.

We have started to develop our Team Treaty this week and we are looking at this through the lens of our new school Values.

We are beginning to develop our Team Treaty. Here are some photos of the students working on their sheets, showing us 'What makes me happy and feel like they belong'.

Hope you all have a fantastic week, and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Kia ora 2019!

Tēnā koutou katoa!

Kia hora te marino

Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana

Hei Huarahi mā tātau i te rangi nei

Aroha atu, aroha mai

Tātou i a tātou katoa

May peace be wide-spread

May the sea be like greenstone

A pathway for us all this day

Give love, receive love

Let us show respect for each other

Welcome to Tūhura 2019

We hope you had a holiday full of laughter and love, and are well reseted to kick off the new year. 

Here's what we got up to:
 Molly at the summit of the Remarkables Grand Traverse- Great view!

Mt Talbot Saddle - Gertrude valley in Fiordland
Molly's house Reno!

Paula enjoyed a camping holiday with her husband, three children, their partners and her gorgeous grandson Oakley, in Golden Bay!

Wainui Falls Golden Bay

Wharariki Beach Golden Bay

What you need to know:

Togs -need to be brought every day, please note that these need to be 'ONE PIECE' this is part of our uniform and it also reduces the chance of half getting lost. 

Hats- kept in bags and brought every day

9am Hui- Tūhura will start their day as a whole class at 9am. It is important that your child is at school by then to ensure they don't miss out on a positive start to the day. School opens from 8:30am

Emails- Please CC both Paula and Molly in your emails. This will ensure information will get passed on if one of us is away.,

What will the first couple of weeks look like:

The first two weeks will be focused on developing our team treaty and unpacking our new school values 'Positive Relationships', 'Experts at Discovery', 'Agents of Change' & 'Boldly Me'. This will be a focus throughout the Kura (School). In amongst this, we will be focusing on settling into the daily routines and looking at our first CHILL Tic-Tac-Toe. There will be no reading books sent home during this time, however we will be making some trips to the library as part of our routine. 

Please email or come and see us if you have any questions, or are concerned about anything. We want you to be part of our team just as much as your children.
