Mrs Jones’s Shout Out

Term 1 is flying past at warp speed and we are nearing the end. Time to rest, recharge and repeat. Last Thursday we participated in whole staff professional development on Restorative Practice. Restorative Practice is a relational approach, which recognises that human beings exist in a world of relationships and that a person’s character is developed through their relationships with others. Theunderlying principle of the relational approach is that all people are entitled to enjoy respect, care anddignity. We have high expectations of our tamariki through our school values, Whakaiti, Kōmaitanga and Ūpoko Pakaru. We celebrate when it’s exceptional and we restore and heal when it is threatened. Thismahi will be our priority moving into Term 2.

Congratulations to Jess, Harriet, Clodagh, and Charlotte who will be singing and dancing in the upcoming Lakes Performing Arts Centre production of Cats at the Sir Howard Morrison Centre. Well done to our Y8 mixed Rugby team on their recent success. Wow to our 55 students who participated in RATS Duathlon-what a team and an awesome day for all. Great news for our end of term library competitions winners; Kiri, Brodie, Ashiel and Anja.

Thank you to Minister Freddy-Ray Collier, Nanny Honor and Whaea Hinemoa for the blessing and opening of our newly refurbished Rumaki classroom. It has been under construction for the past 3 weeks. It is a wonderful, huge, refreshed space for the tamariki and kaiako.

Best wishes to our much loved Principal Matua Rawiri who has had surgery this week. Take care. We look forward to your return next term.
