Term 1

Kia ora koutou and Welcome to Room 19

 I hope you all tried to have a break over the summer, and I look forward to getting to know you and your child over the coming year and being a part of the Te Rapa Primary School community.

This term looks to be a busy and exciting one. One of my key goals as a teacher and learner is to encourage all the students to have a positive and curious disposition towards their learning regardless of their ability. 

Term 1 is for each individual to find out about what their strengths and limitations are both personally and academically.  Making mistakes, taking risks, giving and receiving effective feedback in a positive way will be encouraged. 

Ultimately, all students will start to realise the importance of using their initiative and doing the right thing when no one is looking or having to ask!
