KIA ORA TATOU, NGA MIHI NUI The temperatures and sunlight tell us we are exactly halfway between summers and that means it’s time for our mid-year reporting follow-up. Student reports went home with students last Friday and many parents/caregivers have already been online and booked a slot with a teacher or two sometime over these two weeks. If you still need to secure a booking, please visit www.schoolinterviews.co.nz and enter the code h2969. Complete all details accurately including your email as any changes are more easily communicated. The smooth running of these conferences relies on all the adults keeping to time. Please consider all the other folk by starting and ending on time. It is mid-winter and it is cold so feel welcome to use the staff room to wait. Should more time be needed, perhaps book two slots or please arrange a separate meeting via email or phone. The school’s full Annual Report comprising financial and student achievement information is now available via the Documents section of the website. A hardcopy is available from the office on request. At right just three of the charts included in the annual report showing achievement trends since 2011. The Board of Trustees met recently for a workshop centred around the school’s charter in preparation for consultation with the community over the next few months. Keep an eye out for the invitation to be involved. Consultation around the Health Curriculum during Term 3 is also timetabled. This will include the sensitive areas of Keeping Ourselves Safe and Pubertal Change. This discussion with the community is done every two years.

Our daily rolls currently reflect the impact of a nasty bug circulating the community. Personal experience tells me that it can last for some time. If junior has symptoms please be cautious – some things are worth sharing but not in this case. Please also be reminded that any/all absences must be notified to the school as is its reason. When no reason is notified a “?” is recorded beside the child’s name. After five days, unless new information comes to hand, this defaults to a “T” representing Truant. Voicemail, texting, phone call or email can quickly notify the school of the absence and the reason. Perhaps the fastest way is to use the PT Calendar which has a “one touch” Absentee button. The teachers and I look forward to touching base with you all a little more formally over the next two weeks. Stay warm.

MORNING CROSSING TRIAL It seems logical that this trial will run through to the end of the term on Fri 5 July. We have three parents who are covering the five days during the week from 08:30 to 08:55. A couple more volunteers would make it easier all round. If you could do just one morning a week it would help. Six or seven adults would make an ideal number, each covering a day and leaving a reserve just in case. If you can help, then please make contact through the office. Please be aware the school cannot guarantee that an adult will be on station everyday so the current precautions and care should remain the norm.

Sean and Kota checking the Motuweka Walkway. The day was cool and crystal clear, perfect for fossicking around the edges of the estuary for all those left-overs that always arrive via wind and tide. Di and Jordy very quickly sorted groups, volunteers and areas. By 9:15 the work was underway.

Groups covering the Motuweka Walkway walked down to their areas armed with bags and gloves. Those doing the southern margins were transported by minibus. It wasn’t long before the pathway and road edges were sorted. Then the fun started as the log jam was hiding much in and amongst its tangle of decaying branches.

A little further and the polystyrene started showing up in and amongst the reeds. Our designated bags quickly overflowed with items but mostly plastic bottles. Bits of boats were found and retrieved along with glass and larger plastic mouldings and industrial containers. The pile assembled was impressive and the Port Marlborough waste truck was able to demonstrate how it can make a big pile disappear very quickly. It has now all gone to a managed landfill and is not floating around our estuary thanks to a bunch of people who are taking our environment seriously.

Estuary Clean-up On a cold crispy morning Havelock School went to clean up the estuary. We were split into some groups. I had Azza, Max and Alfie. We had three bags; one was for paper, cardboard and glass. Another one was for polystyrene and the last bag was for plastic. Half of the school went over to the dump. We went to the marina. Azza spotted a mussel bag but we couldn’t take it with us. Alfie found a sheep’s spine. Then we came back to school and had two sausages. There wasn’t as much rubbish as last year.

On a crisp morning Havelock school went to clean the estuary. Before we went, we all went to the hall and got into groups. Each group had an adult to help. Some of us went on the side closest to the marina and the other half went on the other side and cleaned up that side. Last year we mostly found polystyrene, this year we mostly found plastic. Some people found some weird things. Someone even found a dead cow and lots of other dead animals. We all came back to school and had one or two sausages and some fruit. By Conor

KENEPURU GETS WRITING

In Kenepuru we have been writing “What happens next” stories. This week our story starters were written by Greg Broadmore, Weta Workshop Artist. CAPTAIN TANIWHA MUST AVOID CRASHING INTO EARTH IN HIS SNOT-COVERED SPACE SHIP. With a squelching slimy splat, green blobs of interplanetary space-snot smothered the cockpit of Captain Taniwha’s rocket ship—he was blinded, and even worse, on a high-speed collision course with Earth…” Taniwha Went on an Adventure – by Ellie Captain Taniwha drove his space rocket into the Pacific Ocean to clean it. A Marko shark was outside the space rocket. “What am I going to do?” Captain Taniwha thought. The water was filling up. “I will have to swim up and see where the shore is.” He got out and swam up. “Over there is shore!” he said. He swam and swam he got to shore. The shark was jumping up. He ran back and found some bananas in the tree. He climbed up the tree and got some bananas he took them and found somewhere to rest in the jungle while he hid from the shark. Taniwha Flying to Earth – by Jack In the Pacific Ocean there was Captain Taniwha, he was in a space rocket because he needed to clean it. There was just one problem, there was a massive Marko shark in front of him. Captain Taniwha was a fast swimmer. He swam faster than a cheater. He swam to an island called Marko Shark Island. Captain Taniwha saw a helicopter there; it took him back to his home to see his kids. The Shark Attack- by Ollie Captain Taniwha drove his space rocket into the Pacific Ocean to clean it. There was just one problem, there was a Marko shark. Captain Taniwha screamed and flew his space rocket out of the water and then he shot the shark.

WE WANT YOU! SEEKING ROLE-PLAYERS TO PLAY A PART IN NEW ZEALAND’S LARGEST MILITARY EXERCISE

Exercise Southern Katipo is New Zealand’s largest military exercise, held every two years in varying parts of New Zealand. Many of you will remember the last exercise in 2015 which was a great success for Havelock and fun for all those involved.

This year more than 2000 military personnel will be in the Marlborough, Kaikoura, Tasman, Nelson and Buller Regions over the month of October and November 2017, and we are looking for role-players to get involved with the exercise, and have a tonne of fun in the process. In this year’s scenario, which is a continuation from 2015, a fictitious South West Pacific island is separated into two nations called Becara and Alpira. Becara is still suffering from political instability and unrest. New Zealand has been requested to assemble and lead an Intervention Force comprising a coalition of Pacific Island Forum Member States. Westport, Greymouth, Nelson Lakes, Kaikoura, Ward and the Marlborough Sounds will become the troubled Becara region. MORE INFORMATION HERE CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://www.facebook.com/SouthernKatipo/ If you would like to get involved and play a part in this year’s exercise please contact Barbara or Chris Faulls to register your interest and find out more. cbfaulls@xtra.co.nz or (03)574 2806.
