Thank you so much to those parents who provided feedback on their child's writing earlier this term. We are providing another opportunity for family writing feedback early in term 4, and we would like an even greater response.
Students will be emailing their writing and questions to you in week 2 of term 4, and families will have 3 weeks to respond to their child. Students enjoy receiving feedback on their writing from multiple sources, and family feedback is very valuable.
To encourage all our families to take part in providing feedback, we will be offering a prize draw. Each family who provides feedback to their child, will be entered into a draw for one of four $50 Nosh vouchers. Every student who receives family writing feedback will also be entered into a draw for movie tickets.
Mon, Wed & Thur mornings 7:40am-8:30am

We highly recommend the NETSAFE.ORG.NZ website as an excellent source of information and advice for parents and students on how to keep safe when online.
Our main advice to parents is to remove online devices from their children at bedtime - the vast majority of incidents occur late at night when students have unsupervised access.
