Welcome back to the 2012 school year. It was a wet, rainy holiday but we are looking forward to a positive, sunny, successful year. The school roll is very high, opening at 395 pupils.

After two years of warning about closure of the New Entrant roll and urging people to enrol, we have now closed the New Entrant roll. There are 83 pre-enrolments for this year – we have absolutely no more room for any more children. The New Entrant roll for 2012 is now closed. If you didn’t pre-enrol, your child cannot come here. The roll for 2013, 2014 and 2015 is still open.

As previously published we welcome five new teachers: Ray Chen (Room 2), Ellyce Martin (Room 4), Persia Iwan (Room 6), Maggie McCrory (Room 16) and Nicole Wilson (Room 9). They are taking the place of three teachers who retired last year plus two new roll growth positions. Miss Falvey will be re-joining us at the beginning of Term 3.

STATIONARY
All teachers are fully planned, all classes have their reading, maths and spelling groups identified, all classes are fully equipped and ready to go. We just need the children to have their books which cost between $16-$18. Most other schools charge between $60-$80 for stationary, so ours are very cheap. Could all children please have their books by tomorrow.

LEARN MUSIC AT SCHOOL
We are most fortunate in being able to offer specialist music lessons at our school. Your child will be receiving an enrolment form for the “Music In Schools” Programme this week. Enrolments close on 13 February. Please make sure the form is returned to the office by this date so that your child does not miss out on this wonderful opportunity.

We are starting at this level in the hope that we will be able secure a Mandarin teaching assistant in years to come and the lessons will continue as the child moves up the school. Huge thanks to our sponsor Te Atatu Westpac, to Mr Nemaia for giving up so much of his time and to a very enthusiastic and supportive group of parents. RULES We don’t really have too many school rules but there are a few important ones.1.
