Today the children in these classrooms will be bringing home a letter explaining some re-organisation that happened during the holidays.

We apologise for whānau only finding out about this now however it was discussed during the last week of term and given the holiday time teachers used this to get this new idea organised. Whānau are welcome at any time to come and talk to us and share their ideas about the new organisation. The biggest benefit we are wanting is to improve Literacy and Numeracy levels across these classes.
