Dear Parents and Students,
LINC-ED AND REPORTING TO PARENTS
IMPORTANT NOTICE!! On Tuesday 10 April we are
going to host 2 community meetings in the staffroom, to share with you how we will be reporting
to parents this year. Reporting will no longer be 2 written reports in July and December. We
are moving to a more timely manner of reporting. Linc-ed will be the tool that we use to share
students learning achievement and next steps. If you would like to know more about this and
how it will look for your child, please come and join us at 9am in the morning or 7pm in the evening.
WHANGAPARAOA SCHOOLS BOOK WEEK
Book Week April 9th – 13th Theme: All Things Kiwi
During the last week of this term we will be hosting a Book Week throughout the whole school. The purpose of holding
this event is:
- To compliment work in the classroom
- To promote books and libraries
- To enhance the enjoyment of reading
- To enquire into how New Zealand is represented through books and authors
- To give students the opportunity to meet and talk to ‘real life’ authors
During this week the children will be visited by two amazing Kiwi authors: Chris Gurney and Maria Gill. Read more about Book Week.
Many thanks for all your support.
SAFETY AT THE SCHOOL DROP ZONE
Please remember the school drop off/pick up zone is for this purpose only. We have had reports of parents parking
and leaving their vehicles in this zone. This causes unnecessary congestion in our already busy car park. It
is important to ensure the safety of our children.

To celebrate the completion of our new Adventure Playground, we are holding a BBQ cafe Friday on the last day of
term next to the new Playground. We'll have:

We’ll have the usual summary of fundraisers, successes and learnings, plus nominations for
Members, President, Vice President, Treasurer and Teacher Rep (roles & responsibilities
available upon request). This is a great chance to get a snap shot of what we do and how we
do it. We’re looking for those who like to help, work as a team and bring fresh ideas. Please
feel welcome to come check us out, there’s no pressure to join, parents are always welcome
to sit in.
WORKING BEE FOR THE CANTEEN
Our very busy, well used canteen is getting ready for our next
Council approval visit and is very overdue for some paint, a little electrical work and some general maintenance.
We will also need a stainless steel bench with sink top.
Alison is hoping that she can rally up some volunteers to help with this. If you can help please contact Alison
Ph 021 02394224 Many thanks.
