Have you booked your time slot yet? This is on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. It is important that you take the time to come and meet with your child’s teacher to discuss their learning. These Learning Conferences are intended to get everyone on the same page with a child’s learning – Child, Teacher and Parents, your input and the child’s input are highly valuable in this process. Generally we have the children present at the Learning Conference. If your child’s teacher feels there would be benefit in meeting with you without the child there they will let you know so you can make separate time to meet. Like-wise if there are specific things you would like to discuss without your child present please contact your child’s teacher. To book please go to www.schoolinterviews.co.nz

Union Meeting – 20th March
The staff will be attending a Paid Union Meeting on March 20 at 1.30pm. The purpose of this meeting is to look at the terms for the upcoming contract negotiations. We believe with the current climate in education these negotiations are of utmost importance for the good of our country’s education system, so our staff would like to attend. If you can pick your children up at 1pm on March 20 that would be a wonderful way to show your support for teachers and the service they provide for the children of New Zealand. We will have one or two members of staff remain at school for those children who have no way of being collected. Kindly RSVP to the office
if you can’t pick your child up, this will allow us to allocate the number of staff on.Selwyn Sports Spectacular- Year 3 & 4 Only

We are pleased to offer a Layby Option as another payment option for your uniform needs. How it works:
1. Families come in and put uniform on layby.
2. We create an invoice with due date of 6months from date of layby.
3. Then start making payments from date of layby until due date.
4. You can collect items when it is paid in full.
5. We’ll follow up overdue layby after 6 months is up.
6. 10% discount does not apply to Layby option.
By giving this option, we hope that this may help families who may struggle in paying an upfront cost of a full set of uniform.
