Dear parents and caregivers

Swimming Block #1 ends
I guess children, teachers and parents will be pleased to see the end of the swimming block. The kids get so tired and whilst they sleep well, tea-time can be a bit fractious!
It is fantastic we still have swimming tuition - thanks to all who assist the teachers and thanks to Jill Clarke and her team.
After School Care and Holiday Programme
The after school care programme is being audited this week to confirm we meet the requirements for OSCAR subsidies. After some years of having little say in the quality and content of local after-school care and holiday programmes, it is a real step up for us to have a school-based programme approved.
It is also pleasing to hear such positive reports about the school-based programme. Parents are saying they find the quality of staff supervision affirming and the children tell us they love being in the programme.
Our staff and children work out of room C1 in the College Block so please feel free to pop in and see how it is operating.
Kia kaha tatou katoa ki te tautoko o tatou tamariki, mokopuna hoki.
