Week 4 Term 1 2015

I had the pleasure of attending the Senior Syndicate trip to Chosen Valley last Friday. It was well organized with some amazing personal challenges taking place amongst the students. They were encouraging of each other, facing personal fears and working hard to meet individual goals. Well done Seniors! We look forward to watching you all develop throughout the year in your leadership and teamwork abilities.

Last Wednesday was our Meet the Teacher evening. Thank you to all our parents and whanau who attended. These are important opportunities for you to connect with our teachers and to take a moment to korero or talk about what is happening in your child’s classroom. If you missed the chance to attend please feel free to make an appointment to see your child’s teacher or contact them via email. Teachers’ emails can be found on our Glenbrook website: http://www.glenbrook.school.nz

I would like to thank the Lelliotts who spent Sunday receiving White Elephant items. This week the hall is open for anyone who would like top donate goods to the Gala. I’d also like to thank all the ladies in the PTA who have busy most evening with gala preparations. If you are able to assist please contact Kathy Clark or Stacey Bainbridge. There are still activities that need assistance.

Well done to Te Moana who led our assembly last week and to Mrs. Davidson who shared her VIP and mihi with us. Who knew we had a mice breeder amongst our staff!! Please remember there is NO ASSEMBLY this week due to gala preparations.

On Saturday the students are required to wear their school uniforms to gala. Senior students assisting with games need to bring a change of clothes. Students are allowed to wear mufti the following Monday 2nd March.

Next week, Wednesday March 4th is Swimming Sports for Years 3-8. Students will need to wear their whanau colours. Please come and support your whanau and wear your whanau colours. If you are able to assist with parent help please let Mrs Simnor know. Sausage sizzle will be available for purchase.

It is a tremendously busy week for everyone. But as usual, our community rolls up its sleeves, slips on the gumboots and gets stuck in. What a wonderful, caring and family focused ethic we are modeling to our students. It is going to be an amazing day on Saturday and the level of success we will have depends on you.

Your Principal,

Lysandra Stuart.

PS: The Principal will be on the tip-N- Ator.
