Reports and Parent/Teacher Discussions
Your child(ren)’s first progress reports for 2019, will be coming home with children on Friday 10 May; for all children except those who have just started at school. Following these, we will be holding our Teacher/Parent Discussions in Week 3 on Tuesday 14 May, from 3.20pm and Wednesday 15 May, from 1pm.
The discussion booking site will be open tomorrow from 9am.
Please click on www.schoolinterviews.co.nz using the code 8t4yn to book at interview.
The exceptions will be Rooms 17, 27 and 28 who are at camp in Week 3 – they will conduct their discussions in Week 4, and Rooms 12 and 18 will have their discussions in Week 8. These codes will be sent out in due course.
As we will be starting our discussions from 1pm on the Wednesday, we would appreciate if parents were able to pick children up from school at 12.30pm, if possible. Children who are not able to be picked up will be looked after in the hall until the normal 3pm time. For safety reasons, a form is linked below for you to complete by Monday 13 May for each of your children, to let us know what they will be doing that afternoon.
Paid Union Meetings Next Week
Next week, teachers from around New Zealand will be attending paid union meetings, in order to review and then vote on the latest options in relation to the ongoing negotiations with the government. Our teachers have opted to attend different meetings to ensure that we have enough teachers on site at all times to adequately cover our school.
Therefore, next week, there is a high possibility that your child may have to move to another class/or welcome children into their class, while teachers attend a meeting that will take a maximum of two hours. We have attempted to keep these interruptions to a minimum. If you need to pick your child up and they are not in their normal class, just visit the office and we will be able to locate them for you.
I thank you for your ongoing understanding of this and want to reassure you that our teachers remain committed to ensuring that sustainable quality of children’s education in NZ, stays the focus of what they are fighting for.
