The children have input into the optional activities so please be encouraging them to complete these as some of them are designed to benefit you. Whether it is helping cook dinner, doing chores or even give you a relaxing massage! The items listed on the contract with a next to it are ‘Must Do’ activities and need to be completed and signed by a parent/caregiver.
As part of our ‘Positive Behaviour for Learning’ school wide programme we will continue to focus on ‘Te Rapa H.E.A.R.T.’ this term. Te Rapa H.E.A.R.T. incorporates the school values we already have and is part of everything we do at school. This term we will continue to develop our class understanding of each aspect of H.E.A.R.T. as well as investigating well known New Zealander’s who display these values in the public arena. If you can think of any as a family; please share these with your child.
