This Thursday evening, February 11, we are holding our first parent meeting for the year, starting at 6.00pm. The purpose is to share what we are planning for the year, introduce new staff, seek some feedback from parents to help us with our planning, enjoy a sausage sizzle together, and have a chance to informally chat with teachers and each other.
We would love to see all our students there with their parents/caregivers, and other family mambers are welcome as well. The evening is planned for an hour and a half, to finish around 7.30pm.
We are looking forward to seeing you all there - here's hoping for a lovely warm evening.
It has been a great start to the term, with students and teachers keen to get back to work, and excited for the challenges ahead. Students are currently being tested in Reading and Maths, giving their teachers a chance to understand their learning needs and to set their programmes accordingly.
The hot weather has been challenging, especially in the afternoons, but it is good to see most students are wearing their hats and keeping the sun off their faces, ears and necks.
Round the Bays
As part of our Sports programme, several teachers at school have enrolled in the Round The Bays Fun Run, on Sunday 21 February. And they are taking 32 students with them! Watch out for photos of this later in the month. It is an awesome opportunity to participate in a major local event, as well as being physically active and having fun.
Congratulations to all students involved in the creation of the Healthy Wrap. We won the NZ Vegetarian Society video competition, Intermediate category.
Avalon Intermediate's performance at the Polyfest last night was completely amazing. Watch the performance below.
