QUOTE Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened. Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you! Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple. Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So. . . get on your way.

Theodor Seuss Geisel

TRIEENIAL TRUSTEE ELECTIONS ~ MAY/JUNE 2016 These come around faster than you think and the Havelock School Board of Trustees has three of its five parent representative positions involved. The common date of 3 June is likely to be the actual election date across schools and so by 27 April the current board will have appointed a Returning Officer. The Main Roll will close 4 May and nominations will be called/open from 6 May. Nominations will close 20 May with papers sent by 25 May - votes counted 9 June and Board takes office 10 June. Please take some time over the summer break to contemplate whether this might be a way for you to contribute to Havelock’s school. Contact a current trustee and/or visit the NZ School Trustees Association website for further useful background info. http://www.trustee-election.co.nz/

CHILD PROTECTION POLICY (5.50) With the passing of the Vulnerable Children’s Act 2014 schools and other institutions have taken the opportunity to review and refresh their paperwork and procedures. Havelock School has upgraded its policy also and the board is likely to adopt the revised policy at its first meeting of 2016 in February. Unfortunately its length is somewhat longer than its predecessor and is very comprehensive containing definitions, expectations and procedures should any situation arise. Please follow the link and should you have any comment please email the school for the board’s attention by end January. http://www.havelock.school.nz/images/documents/5.50 Child Protection.pdf Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

OUTSTANDING TEAM AWARD Children across Marlborough know them collectively as ‘Di and Soph’, or sometimes simply as ‘Kiwi Can’. They are the people and passion behind the programme that has been reinforcing key values in local kids over the past 2 years. Their contributions were recognised at the Foundation for Youth Development Excellence Awards hosted by the Governor General at Government House in Auckland recently. “There are over 40 Kiwi Can teams throughout New Zealand, and to be one of three to receive an award was a real honour” says Di. The award recognises the positive contribution the leaders have made to local kids, schools and communities. “We often get parents telling us how much their children enjoy the lessons and talk about what we’re doing in class. ‘Keep trying mum, try try again, that’s resilience just like in Kiwi Can’ – it makes me smile when I hear stories like that from parents.” Di and Sophia travel to Havelock, Linkwater, Picton, Whitney Street and Kaikoura schools every week, delivering a lesson with each class in the school. “A big part of the programme is getting to know the kids. As well as the lessons, we spend time with them at play times, finding out what they’re into. Learning all the names was intimidating in the beginning, we see over 500 kids each week” comments Sophia. The growth of the programme into Mayfield and Blenheim schools in 2016 is a further endorsement of the outstanding efforts of this duo, and the importance placed on the concepts they are teaching.

CHARTING THE FUTURE Annually schools review their agreement with the government as regards their vision, goals and plans in response the needs of students and the broad wishes of their community. Havelock’s Board of Trustees too has spent some time looking carefully at its charter and goals. In mid-November it invited the school and wider community to a hui for a 90 minute session to enjoin in conversation about the school’s longer-term goals, especially in relation to employment predictions for the workplace. This event was not well attended however, because these goals form a significant part of the charter, the board has published hereunder a draft set following on from their workshop at Te Mahia. Should you have any comment please communicate as desired with a trustee. It is likely these, or slightly modified versions will be include in the 2016 charter. General Goals (revised Sep/Oct 2015) The school will, in consultation with the community, continue to promote the following outcomes for its youngsters. 1 Students will succeed within an environment where trustees, parents and staff form a positive learning triangle/team achieving a sense of well-being/hauora. Achieved through… a charter in which expectations are clear open board meetings an open-door policy the provision of a safe physical and emotional environment with modern facilities and excellent resourcing Mauri Ora na Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861
