Tonight is the night we get to join together for some food , fun and talk. It is an opportunity to learn about Reading, but also to spend some time with other parents and their children and meet new members of our school and community.

I would like to welcome two new students to Waianiwa School this week. Welcome Althea Manoop to Room 3 and John Seager to Room 1. We look forward to working with both you and your families in your time at Waianiwa School.

Room 1 have been busy learning about how to stop the spread of germs. You should have seen our bread experiments!!                                    

Our Value for the next 3 weeks is Perseverance

This is the quality of continuing with something even though it is difficult

School Assembly this Friday will be led by Room 3.

Kind Regards

Karen Wilson
