Tēnā Koutou, Talofa Lava, Malo e Lelei, Namaste, Ni sa bula, Noaia’e mauri, Fakalofa lahi atu, Kia Orana, Ni Hao, An Nyung Ha Sai Yo, Nay Ho, Hej, Hallo, Sawat Dee, Cześć, Goeie Dag, សួស្តី, Здравствуйте, hola, 안녕하세요Greetings to our school families.
Next week is the final week of Term 2! Wow – it seems that the terms fly by.
We had a huge turnout for Dr Sarah Watson’s presentation on anxiety and neurodiversity in the hall this week. There is so very little support through our current education system that we need to grow our understanding, skills and knowledge as parents, educators and “the village”. We need to do better to support our tamariki and each other. We will continue to fight for better systems and structures of support through the Ministry of Education. Dr Sarah was interesting and informative – we are lucky to have her expertise in our community via Totally Psyched in Warkworth.
Keep an eye on the Diary – next week is a big week! Looking forward to catching up with many of you over the assemblies and interviews.
