Mid Year Reports home

Next week is the last week for Term 2 and we will be holding Whānau Hui on Monday 2 July and Tuesday 3 July. Your confirmed time to come to your whānau hui with your child is included with today’s newsletter. Teachers will discuss with you your child’s report, highlighting the progress they have made, what their next steps are and will be able to share any other information with you including your child’s work.

We would like all whānau to make this time a priority, come along and listen to the great mahi your child is doing and how we can help them to be even better.

Even if you haven’t made a time we are giving you one so please show up! Any questions please ask.

And please remember that we try hard to make sure reports come home 100% correct. If for some reason we have overlooked something please let us know.

A REMINDER: school finishes at 12pm on Tuesday so please let us know what is happening to your child at this time if you haven’t already. Complete the attached notice and let us know if you haven’t already.
