SPRING FEST ~ PET DAY

Despite a gloomy forecast and a slightly damp start, Spring Fest forged ahead with animals and students putting their best hoof or foot forward. Some pupils and their families had clearly been busy with training their pets and preparing their indoor entries over the holidays. Pre-schoolers entered into the spirit and added their handy work into the mix. NZ Home Loans deserve a special mention – not only did they provide the BBQ trailer, they also supplied the chefs! BBQ sausages and ciabatta BLTs – yum! A huge THANK YOU to Selena and her team of judges and helpers. AWARDS Indoor Cert

CHANGING FACES – CHANGING PLACES

Vicki has chosen this term to take a break, spending time with family and undertaking further study. With her father’s tragic fatality at the end of last term, with Ernie back and Elyse already well established in Wakamarina, the timing is apt. Staff have already made some adjustments to roles and responsibilities and whilst programmes remain largely unaffected or rearranged, some extra-curricular activities will not now occur. Pam Elvy is finishing as Groundsperson at the end of October. She has done a great job keeping the school looking sharp over the last 30 months or so. So too the pool which is always in heavy demand throughout the summer and so takes many hours of dedicated effort for it to sparkle as it always does. Best wishes and thanks Pam – all have appreciated your work ethic and attention to detail. The school welcomes Lisa Sandrey back – Lisa is a student teacher and has re-joined Kaituna for the next few weeks as part of her study. Lisa is a familiar face to the students as she spent two weeks in Kaituna back in Term 2.

COMPLAINTS, CONCERNS & ISSUES

Given today’s environment of growing diversity, complexity and scrutiny within which our schools operate, it is important to ensure that the good reputation of the school in the wider community is maintained, and that we as a community manage potentially difficult situations effectively. The school has a COMPLAINTS, CONCERNS & ISSUES policy. This policy should be used as a guide and is available on the school website. There are also hard copies available at the school office. Havelock School operates an open door policy where those with a complaint, concern or issue are expected to communicate directly with the school as soon as practicably possible so it can be addressed. In the first instance, contact should be made with the respective staff member at a mutually agreed time. If the concern is unable to be resolved, then the matter should be raised with the Principal who will provide further assistance. If the concern is in relation to the Principal, then this matter can be raised with them directly or with the Board of Trustees through contacting the Board Chairperson Ben Roborgh – 574 2697 or 027 208 3102 or brroborgh@actrix.co.nz . We also ask that social media is not used to air concerns as it can quickly get out of hand, leave lasting and damaging messages that are not reflective of the actual situation. Please ensure that you approach school directly with any concerns you may have, as per the procedure mentioned above. Generally good, open and timely communication resolves the majority of concerns that may arise during the school year. We all want to provide the best possible learning environment for all of our students. Whilst the school has in place comprehensive policies for students and staff, it has taken advice concerning social media issues in the wider context and is likely to develop policy and guidance around how this fits within the Harmful Digital Communications Act 2015.

presents…

Val Griffith-Jones

"A Wry View" The opening reception will be held on Thursday October 20th 6:30pm with the exhibit continuing through to November 4th. Val Griffith-Jones is a Picton based artist. Her brilliantly clever, quirky pieces, beautifully crafted, remind us of the moments in life which we have all experienced, and view with irony and laughter. Admission is free with light refreshments provided.

Tadpoles Our frogs are ‘making mayhem’ at the moment, so I would imagine there will be hundreds of offspring within the next month or two so… If any children/staff/parents would like some they are more than welcome. Just BYO jam jars (with lids) and we will supply the rest. Interested?
