Kia Ora e te Whanau,
 
Thank you to all the families that have returned the Decile Review Survey. As Kelvin Mason (Board Chair) expressed, “The Board of Trustees are working through the process of seeking a reassessment to improve the level of funding the school receives.” We have had 63 forms returned from our 77 families.
 
We have been fortunate to have received a grant from the New Zealand Community Trust (NZCT) to assist in paying for the transport to winter weekly sports. NZCT contributed $695.64 to the cost of the transport and the rugby team received funding from The Mainland Foundation towards there transport cost.
 
Mathematics Parent Survey: I have been seeking feedback from our Year 4-6 students regarding their learning in Mathematics and would also like to seek feedback from our parent community regarding the teaching and learning in Mathematics. The survey seeks feedback about your interest in Maths, the teaching and learning and our next steps. If your answers differ for your children, you can complete the survey more than once. The link is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8PCFDNG
 
I would like to remind our school community that if your child/ren are presenting signs of being unwell (runny nose, coughing, sneezing etc), please keep them at home. Please remember that if your child is not attending school contact the office either by phone or email.

Kind regards,
 
Abraham Atherton (Principal – Tumuaki)
