DOUBLE DOLPHIN AWARDS The Term 4 theme for Kiwi Can is Resilience which has been broken into three major components – Understanding Emotions, Self-Control/Self-Discipline, & Dealing with Challenges The following were recently recognised with a DOUBLE DOLPHIN Award relating especially to the Dealing with Challenges aspect of Resilience.

Congratulations to:

Jayden Wilson-Steele Ayla McPhee Kaytie Mulholland Taylor Clark Also to:

Max Skehan

who was nominated by class mates Mia and Ruby-May for being an excellent role model in class and in the playground, reflecting the three Rs of being; • Reasonable • Respectful • Responsible And for showing a great attitude and excellent effort, Phynix Lagden was nominated for a special award by Tayla Munro. Notable also in the photo are four of the five adults who took up the challenge of taking our seniors to the capital. Fantastic to see so many little and not so little dolphins not only taking up the challenge but responding so well. Support for and amongst our learning community members is strong. Ka pai!

KAITUNA CLASSDOJO CENTURIANS Congratulations to both Bailey McLean-Waltho and Josh Steele for reaching this great score. Great effort. HAERE RA As noted in the last newsletter Mr Throssell is heading over the hill to Nelson and taking up a teaching post with Year 7 & 8 students at Mapua School. We congratulate Piers on his new position and wish him well. Also finishing is Mrs Wadsworth who has been with us in Wakamarina for Terms 3 and 4. Thank you for all your dedicated work ensuring efforts and energy are well directed and furthering achievement. Best wishes. Piers has spent three great years working mostly with senior students but also at different times with pupils in other learning areas. No doubt some words will be shared at Wednesday’s final assembly of the year acknowledging Piers’ contribution to not only Havelock’s school but also the wider community. Best wishes for the new set of adventures and our collective thanks for the myriad things you have done for pupils within and beyond the classroom. HAERE RA - SENIORS Inevitably we say farewell to our Y8 students this week as they head on to secondary in the New Year. Best wishes to Sara, Jordan, Lucas and Jack as they start another chapter. Although an exciting time, it is also tinged with sadness as relationships nurtured over eight years are fundamentally changed. Our very best wishes go with them as they step into new beginnings. Thanks for all you have contributed in your years at Havelock. Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

BEST WISHES AND THANKS With only hours to go until the sun sets on another academic year, it seems an appropriate time to wish all associated with the school a great Christmas and ripper New Year. To all out there who have volunteered their time, resources and good will for our youngsters over the year, a brief but heartfelt vote of thanks. The myriad things done to support the school are appreciated, without them all would be the poorer. For those travelling, which is likely to be most if not all, let’s hope patience and good decisions lead to a safe holiday period.

Walkabout in Wellington Pelorus went to Wellington for a class camp. The class took private cars out to Woodbourne airport and we got on three Sounds Air planes and flew to Wellington. When we were all there the four groups had to find a bus to Nomads Backpackers.

Once we all dropped off our bags we went to the Waterfront and had a look around. After that we had lunch at Frank Kitts’ Park and played around and had another walk around. At 4:00 we walked almost 2kms to Ferg’s Kayaks for rock-climbing and rollerblading.

We started with rollerblading. We got a helmet, wrist guards, and our rollerblades and left the building. For starters people were falling over non-stop and some people almost ended up in the water.

After an hour of falling over and fun we went back to Fergs to do the rockclimbing side of Fergs. We spent another hour rock-climbing then we walked back to our accommodation and had spag bol for tea.

In the morning we caught a Metlink train out to Porirua and then walked to Adrenalin Forest. At Adrenalin Forest there are 7 levels of courses. After everyone had finished we headed out to the Police Museum for some police history. We did some finger printing and met Peak the puppy who's training to be a police dog, then we walked back to the train station and went back to Wellington. We walked back to the accommodation again and had pizza for tea. On Wednesday there was a bit of a wait because at 9:00 we were going to explore Te Papa and then at 12:30 we were going to Capital E to do some 3D printing and 3D designing. After we finished at Capital E we went to the war memorial park where we witnessed the last post being performed. We found out that Wellington has the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior and that they've performed the last post since 2014 and they’re going to do it every night until 2018. When we got back to Nomads we had our burgers for tea and then went to bed. On Thursday we went out to Weta workshop to see a behind the scenes look at ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’. After we had had a look around we caught a bus back into Wellington to have a guided tour of Parliament. We got to experience questioning time in Parliament. After that we went out to the zoo for our overnight stay but on the way we stopped for a Chinese dinner.

In the morning we explored the zoo and saw all the fantastic animals. Lunch followed at the Botanical Gardens and finally we went to the ferry terminal and caught the ferry home. [See next page for our last photo.] Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

S LIGHT CHANGE TO START DATE 2017 Given the training professional staff are doing during the last full week of January there is no day free to have the necessary Teacher Only Day before students arrive for their first day. Consequently the opening day for the 2017 school year will now be Tuesday 31 January. To keep the number of days open within legal requirements the planned ToD for Friday 2 June has been scrapped. These dates have been updated on the web calendar http://www.havelock.school.nz/calendar Term 1

NEW FACES 2017 As noted in the previous newsletter two appointments are pending and will not be confirmed until after the school year closes. Naturally parents are keen to meet with those who will be teaching their children in 2017 especially someone who is as yet unknown. To help get these new relationships underway, the parents of 2017 Kaituna students are invited to meet the new Kaituna teacher at 3:00pm on Monday 30 January. All professional staff will of course be working through the day to ensure a smooth start to the year. We will be arranging a Meet the Teacher/Parent evening sooner than later in the New Year to facilitate communications and expectations etc. Meanwhile, enjoy the festive season and enjoy your children – have fun and make great memories. Best wishes for a safe and happy Christmas and New Year. Mauri Ora nā Akoranga ~ Learning for Life… since 1861

STATIONERY LISTS 2017 These are being reviewed and will become available via the school website and in hardcopy from the office before the school year draws to a close. There is only one list but with differing columns for different year groups. Supplies are sourced similarly to the specials which become available in January but some items are specifically supplied to the school as they are not available elsewhere. Be assured the prices are sharp and it must be a given that there is less stress in sorting this from the ease of your home as opposed to a busy stationery supplier in January or February. EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS The school is checking through its records for email addresses of the primary carers of its students in order to facilitate the broadcasting of information etc to particular groups or all families as a whole. If you suspect the school does not have such an email address, the correct one or even the latest one, please send an email to admin@havelock.school.nz with SURNAME EMAIL ADDRESS in the subject line. COIN TRAIL Thanks to all who contributed last Wednesday to the Earthquake Fundraiser for Seddon, Ward and Kaikoura. It has all been banked into the Marlborough Mayoral Earthquake Fund.

Did you know? That the Community Oral Health Service is open 8am-5pm Mon-Fri for 50 weeks a year, so all the clinics will be operating over the summer school holidays. Clinics will only be closed from Fri 23rd Dec 2016 until they reopen on Mon 9th Jan 2017. For any urgent dental care during that time, parents should contact a contracting dentist in their community. It is also a time to remind each other about ‘keeping our teeth safe’ over summer by limiting our sugary food, drinking water and brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Best wishes from all the COHS staff for a happy, healthy, tooth friendly summer holiday =

Welcome to the 2017 Havelock Mussel & Seafood Festival that has been brought back to celebrate and showcase the Greenshell Capital of the world. For your entry fee you will get a full day of Culinary Experiences, Live Music and Entertainment, fine local beer and wine, and Seafood taking centre stage. Saturday 18th March is set to be a cracker day out for the whole family at the Havelock Domain. 2017 will see a whole new layout plan at the domain making your day flow with more experiences, so you don’t miss out on anything. The festival has always been a great family day out and this time round the family theme extends to sisters Karena and Kasey Bird, winners of MasterChef 2014 and now stars of their own television show. For Mum and Dad there’s plenty going on: cooking demonstrations, market stalls, industry displays, live music from Double Shots, A-Minor Thing and Havelock’s very own Theatre Company plus the festival’s first ever ‘Beer University’. For the kids there’s a heap of activities and entertainment including Adam Allsorts the clown, Dragon Uke duo, where you can bring your own Ukulele to join in the fun, laser tag, a climbing wall, bungy trampoline and the NIWA kids zone with heaps of free stuff & face painting, mussel shell decorating and loads more. Television show ‘What Now’ may also be present. On the day there’s the chance to see or be part of two World record attempts, first the world mussel opening record and second an attempt to stage the largest Kiwi Can exercise session ever. Early bird tickets ($25 adult, Children Under 12 Free) can be booked at www.iticket.co.nz, i-sites around the Marlborough region, or www.havelockmusselfestival.co.nz or gate sales ($30) will be available on the day. The Havelock Mussel & Seafood Festival is a wonderful way to spend a summer’s day, with as much or as little activity as you choose, put the 2017 festival on your calendar today. There are still spaces available if you would like to have a stall site at the festival, please go on the website for an application form & information. See you there!
