Tēnā Koutou,

Welcome back to school. I hope that you enjoyed the autumn break. 

With the weather turning colder we are eagerly anticipating the completion of the boiler project. Work is still ongoing on this project, with the buffer tank due to be installed next week which should have the heating fully functional by the beginning of week three.

It was great to see students and their caregivers in school on Wednesday for the goal-setting conferences. I personally was impressed by both the quality of the goal setting and the learning conversations that occurred at both of my children's conferences today.

For those of you that are participating in the Home & School House Tour next weekend, I'll be at one of the houses, so please make sure you come and say hello. If you still need to purchase a ticket please contact the office. 

I would like to take this opportunity to wish students who are participating in winter sports all the best for their season. I'm looking forward to being on the sidelines again at my children's rugby matches and I'm hoping to head along to the netball to see some games when I'm able to.

Ngā mihi nui,

Glenys Hanley,
