KIA ORA/GREETINGS TO ALL PARENTS AND FRIENDS OF THE SCHOOL
It’s been another week of uncertainty with sudden changes in Alert Levels. Last year teachers were able to keep in touch with their families through Seesaw and Class Dojo and our teachers have sent out invitations to their new families to join their class platform for 2021. Please ensure you have accepted the invitation and if you are unsure on how to join please contact teachers to help you. Communication is crucial if we have to lockdown in our region and it is always better to be prepared.

MEET AND GREET
Lets hope that the alert levels change over the weekend so that we can go ahead with our families Meet and Greet. We will start the night with a swim at 6.00pm while our BOT cook the sausages ready for the sausage sizzle. Then the classes will be open and our Junior School will participate in the learning Through Play programme and the seniors can see the Garden to Table programme. Please feel free to call in and look at the refurbished classrooms. It’s always a great opportunity to meet our new families and find out what’s happening for your child at Turua School.
SENIOR SWIMMING REPORT
Thursday 25th February 2021 Turua school year 5,6,7 & 8 went to the Ngatea pool for their swimming sports. We thought it was a great day out and we’re glad houses are cheering on their team! It was great to see the house leaders encourage people to cheer and chant.
Everyone had great time at the Ngatea swimming pools and they competed well in the races, showed sportsmanship and paid attention when the teachers and sports leaders were speaking. This was a great opportunity to speak in places in front of crowds, parents etc.
Thank you all for coming. It was a great day and we are looking forward to seeing more events this year.
