Pānui wiki 8 Wāhaka 4 / Newsletter Week 8 Term 4

Kia ora koutou,

Just a short newsletter to get you through to our main one on Wednesday next week.
This will be our Christmas newsletter and will be a bit larger than the usual. It will have classes for 2023.

Our class structure and teachers look a little different next year. Some teachers are moving rooms, some have different year groups, and different year groups in the classrooms. All decisions were made in the best interest of ‘learning’ and where each child will learn best. This may mean friends are in different rooms, but remember, before school, morning tea, lunch and afterschool, our students play with whoever they like. Also playdates and weekends. Learning has to be our focus!!
