from the Principal

Find out more at Myross Bush hockey break-up last Wednesday at the turf. It was a fun day between adults and the kids.



Well its the last week of term and the whole school production is nearing its zenith! Put the tension of that alongside the ongoing saga of the America's Cup and it’s just all go! A huge thank you to all the Mums who have helped get the 188 costumes ready and to the Dads who have had a hand in both creating the set and getting it down to the Civic tomorrow. Your willingness to assist with this rather large undertaking is instrumental in making our show a reality. With the commitment of time and effort that has gone into this production, as is the case every year, we expect all students to be there on the night for the one performance. This effort is an important part of the curriculum for this term and your child's participation is vital. Your support is also crucial and we look forward to seeing you all there supporting

Kia tu Pakari

not only your child, but the whole school in what is a real spectacle that showcases all our children. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the efforts of our Year 5 and 6 rugby boys as they took on Makarewa. As I watch the battle that continues to unfold between Oracle USA and Emirates Team New Zealand I am reminded again of the fact that at the end of the day, no matter what the eventual outcome, the way you manage disappointment, adversity and irritating opponents, it is very similar to how we all have to manage everyday interactions and emotions. Every day, both at home and school, we work to equip and encourage those foundation values of courage, integrity, tolerance and fairness. I am reminded again of a quote from the Young Leaders day from last year which went something along the lines of " careful of your thoughts, because your

thoughts become words, be careful of your words because words become actions, be careful of your actions because actions build your character, be careful of your character because your character is what shapes your destiny! A reminder ALL STUDENTS are expected to be at school tomorrow for our final practice at the Civic. This includes all Enrich students. We will be taking our lunch to the Civic for the day so no heat ups. Enjoy tomorrow night. Celebrate with your child the work that has gone into another rewarding term at our school. Have a great term break! Regards Tim Lovelock Principal

KAURI 8 (Mrs Polaschek and Mrs Lemin) The Kauri Kids are so excited about their first production! We are getting better at making big actions, listening to the music and knowing when to do the next move, and where to be on the stage.  Whew!  What a lot to think about!  Thank you to the parents who have offered to help with taping the legs on the night.  We are so excited about going to the theatre tomorrow.  Please only send children to school in shoes they can manage to take on and off by themselves, as we take our shoes off multiple times a day.  Today we are sending home a packet of reading books to read over the holidays. These don't need to come back to school until next term.  Thank you and happy reading! RIMU 3 (Mrs Godby) We are all very excited about the production on Thursday night. We are working hard to refine our dance and singing. As we move into the holidays it is a great time to remind everyone about the need to maintain the gains we have made over the holidays. I will be sending home books for some children to read while others can go to the library to get more books. The class blog has a link to Study Ladder and other Maths Basic Facts games. Feel free to use these sites as much as you like. Have a great holiday and enjoy your precious family time together. Regards Natalie RATA 4 (Mrs Aurik) Thank you for sending along your child's black pants for the production. We appreciate your support with this.  I am still looking for another couple of parents who can help get the children ready on production night. If you can come at six please email me ( We had a dress rehearsal today and everyone looked fabulous. Have a restful and safe holiday.   MIRO 5 (Mrs Kahukura) Wow. It is quite amazing that we have reached the end of another term. A big thank you to the parents for your support with homework, our new team teaching and help within the classroom. This is very much appreciated. Any parent help in the change room tomorrow night
