Pet Day

Wed Oct 19 11:57am

Kia ora,



We are thoroughly looking forward to our Pet Day tomorrow. Our students are extremely excited to be able to either bring their own animals to school and/or support their classmates in the various activities on offer. Please see some reminders below that will support us in ensuring the day runs smoothly.



Reminders:


Please take care when driving into the school grounds. Students who are not bringing any animals will be out on the field as spectators from 10 am so we would appreciate everyone being parked up before this time
School uniform is mandatory for both students bringing animals and for those attending school as a normal day
If you intend to take your child/ren home after they’ve finished their relevant activities, please let your child’s teacher know
Food will be available to purchase, please see our recent Facebook post for prices
Raffle tickets will be available to purchase
Rat traps that were built on Grandparents’ day will be available to purchase for $10 each. All proceeds will go towards our school Enviro Area
The judge’s decision is final. Our Pet Day relies on a number of people volunteering their time and it’s important that we treat them with respect


Thank you for your support, we look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.

Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and post the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
