What another great week we’ve had! In all of the classes there are some wonderful and amazing things happening. There have been so many highlights this week it’s almost hard to keep track. I think that there are three that really stand out to me. The first is a large group of children who have been able to come and share their learning with me. This has been great to see, and hear, as they read their work to me and explain their thinking behind the ideas. Brilliant!
Another highlight has been at lunchtimes. On Tuesday I showed Room 1 and 2 a game out on the field. For the past two days, students have organised and run the game themselves without help or intervention. This is a testament to the developing leadership we have in our school. Leadership isn’t about telling others what to do all the time, good leaders are also able to listen. Well done to all of you (at one stage there were over 40 playing).
The third highlight is yet to come (as I write this). I am really looking forward to having our school assembly Friday afternoon. We have some new faces to introduce, some birthdays to celebrate as well as lots of learning success. I can’t wait! I look forward to seeing you there.
Last week we had new yellow lines painted outside of the school. I’m grateful that people have been paying attention to where these are as it’s making the road outside of the school a much safer place. Some days after school I’m certain this is the busiest road in Southland.
There is a working bee at the school this Saturday from 1:00. If you are able to come along and help out it would be appreciated, start time is 1:00. If you are down to help out on the school grounds list, this might be a great opportunity to shine.
Enjoy the weekend but watch out for Jack Frost, he’ll be the one travelling by icicle.
