Nau Mai, Haere Mai!

Kia Ora and welcome to Rūma Kaitaki!  Here in our amazing classroom you will find twenty nine incredible young learners engaged in meaningful learning experiences.  Kaitaki meaning leaders – our Year 7 & 8 students are responsible for many roles around our kura and we take pride in these roles. Our kaiako are Mrs Rakich and Miss Hayley.  We are looking forward to a challenging and rewarding 2020!  

OUR WONDERFUL STUDENT LEADERS – 2020

 

COMMUNICATION

The Turua School Weekly Newsletters are now sent in an e-format. Don’t forget to check regularly each week to find out about what’s happening in the the school community.

If you have any concerns about your child’s well being or progress, please feel free to email us anytime or have a word before or after school. At times we may need to make an appointment to discuss matters further – kaiako@turua.school.nz  

SEESAW

Kaitaki is connected to an app called Seesaw. This is like our very own class Facebook and is accessible only to the Parents, Family and Students of Kaitaki.  Seesaw is a platform for student engagement. Students are empowered to create, reflect, share, and collaborate. Students can  “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. It’s simple to get student work in one place and share with families, and nothing is shared without teacher approval. Seesaw also has a message facility that allows us to message parents individually.

LIBRARY

Our library day is Monday. All library books need to be returned to the library once read so that your child can get new books out.

HOME LEARNING

Spelling homework is given every Monday and posted on Seesaw.

Reading every night is expected of Kaitaki students for at least 15 minutes.
