Te Kura o Kotemaori
Update from the Principal
Week ending 24/03/2017
Hello to the parents and caregivers, this week the Board of Trustees met for the first time in 2017. We are all pleased with the way the school is running since the start of this year and have set some projects for us to work on throughout the year. One of the priorities of the school this year is to make reading and writing a real focus for learning this year. As it stands to date we have achieved very well with regards to maths, but would like to see the children reading and writing better. To assist us with this goal we are using different strategies and programmes to encourage and support the children’s reading. On the home front, the children are expected to read every night and we supply them with books that encourage them to engage in reading.
School is already mid-way through the Term and we will be having a Duffy Role Model assembly on the 12th of April, where Ray Bishop will come and give the children the books they have chosen and a motivational talk.
That’s all from me.
Just a reminder to parents / caregivers if you could please ring to let us know if your child/ren are going to be absent from school. Leave a message if we don’t pick up. Much appreciated.
To Amyah Ross who turns 8 years old today 23rd March.
