Tēnā koutou katoa (Greetings to everyone in the community),

Thank you to all our whānau who attended interviews on Tuesday and Wednesday (Room 15), or who are attending interviews today. This term, most whānau have engaged with their child’s classroom teacher either, through interviews or IEP meetings that were held earlier this term (or in Term 2). Having a close home-school partnership goes a long way towards supporting our tamariki to AIM High and ‘be the best they can be’.  A reminder to Year 8 whānau, if you could not attend the High School Interviews this week, please contact Stratford High School directly to make an interview time as soon as possible. Stratford High School is about to start organising their 2023 school timetable.

Year 7-8 Rugby and Netball:
Well done to the Year 7-8 rugby and netball teams who have made the finals for the Linkhorne Cup (rugby) and Burkhart Cup (netball). The football team also had a lot of fun at yesterday’s tournament. All our ākonga showed great manaakitanga and competitive spirit throughout the day.

The Annual Scholastic Book Fair will be displayed in the School Library from Thursday 15 September until Tuesday 27 September. See the flyer in last week’s school newsletter for more details.
