We have had a great few weeks here at Queenstown Primary School and it has been fantastic seeing all the Tamariki settling back into their learning.
It was a good turnout of parents attending goal-setting interviews for Yr 2, 4, 6 and 8 this week. This is an important part of our calendar at school as it gives us an opportunity to sit down with whanau and discuss learning and the next steps.
Earlier in the term parents of new classes in Yr 1, 3, 5 and 7 met with their new teacher to share information and get to know each other. These nights have been split out because we have classes that are entering their second year with the same teacher.
Rollover classes have been trialled and are now fully implemented across the school. Staying with the same teacher for 2 years has huge benefits, most importantly it allows positive relationships to blossom and learning to commence immediately at the start of the year.
Well done to all the athletes who competed in the athletic sports on Tuesday. Today at assembly, we acknowledged the champions of the year groups and announced that Kawarau was the winning house for athletics sports. Thank you to Paula Nicholls who works tirelessly for the students to provide these opportunities.
Congratulations to the Enviro Leaders who received badges for their great service - fantastic effort!
Good luck to the Yr 7/8 classes who head to Glendhu Bay next week for camp. I am sure you will enjoy your opportunity to try rock climbing and further testing out the school paddle boards.
Hopefully the weather is on the improve for the weekend after our sharp reminder this week that we live in the mountains. Connect with friends and family.
