Team Behaviour Process
We have many ways in which we encourage positive behaviour, with house points, classdojo points, Incentive coupons and certificates. Sometimes this isn’t enough and a different consequence is needed.
The following is the procedure we will follow as a team for unacceptable behaviour. This rarely applies to most students but it is important to recognise that this is the procedure we will follow.

Third Warning 1 written beside name
Fourth Warning 2 written beside name

A child may move back down the steps should positive behaviours take over.
This year our team will continue to use the PRIME Mathematics Programme during cross-grouping. The PRIME Mathematics Programme is sequential, revisiting concepts and building on these so your child is confident to move to the next step. The programme builds a solid foundation in Mathematics, developing a conceptual understanding with a strong focus on problem solving.
The programme is aligned with the New Zealand Curriculum and will support your child to meet the expected curriculum level.
Please ensure that your child has the appropriate stationery for school so that we can limit distractions from formal lessons and activities.
Children will begin practising the different athletic events that will take place from Week 1 of the term. They will rotate around each activity in the first 4 weeks of the term, to ensure they are exposed to each event, before our Athletics Day. Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing to take part in these activities on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. This year our Year 5 and 6 Athletics will be held at school on Wednesday, 23rd November. More information will come early in Term 4 regarding timing of the day with a request for parents to help out on the day.
It’s that time of year again, with the sun shining and the air temperature on the rise. We will swim on warm days and run alternative fitness for those not participating and when the weather is not favourable.
Things to remember:
With the weather hopefully warming up during Term 4, please encourage your child to bring a hat to school to wear outside during playtime and lunchtime to ensure they are Sun Smart! There is sunblock available for students to reapply when they need to during the day.
