Waianiwa School Newsletter

From the Principal's Desk                                               19th September 2018

Guten Tag

Thank you for your support of our Parent Reading Night last Wednesday.  It was great to see so many Mums and Dads. The biggest message I think we can take from the night, is that it is so important to read with, or to your child, no matter how old they are.


  Room 3, Room 2 and Room 1 sharing their reading games with Parents

Loud Shirt Day

Next Friday the 28th September we are having a Loud Shirt Day(wear your brightest shirt, tshirt or hoodie) to support children who are deaf. A gold coin donation would be appreciated.

The Friends of Waianiwa (PTA) are providing a BBQ lunch for us for an end of term celebration.

So your child will not need lunch next Friday, unless they have an allergy to beef.

Consent forms for Schools photos on the 19th October, will come home today with the school newsletter or by email, if you have your newsletter emailed. Please fill out and return by next Wednesday 26th September. Thanks.

Our Value for the next 2 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 2.

Kind Regards
