Almost at the business end of the year .....Christmas Time!

Kia ora Whanau, well where has the year gone already!  September means Spring which means warmer weather which means summer is just around the corner yippee! How many parents have had a hurry up from their children regarding getting along to a chrome book training session with me so they can take their device home?  Its only for approximately 1 hour at a suitable time that suits, the sooner this training is undertaken the sooner your child can start learning at home.  Look at it as upskilling yourself also, there is always something new to learn, you have got nothing to lose but everything to gain, come along and find out what these cool devices our kids are learning on are all about.
A few of our schools are currently holding signup evenings, this term and next term for our year 3 s going onto year 4 next year, please do make an effort if you receive a notice from your child about these evenings, the more informed you are about your child's learning the more support you can provide, especially by commenting on their blogs. Our children love to see their families taking an interest in what they are doing, and it encourages them to keep up the great work they produce.  So come on parents get along to these learning sessions and help support your child's education, never before have we been able to be so connected to what our children are learning in the classroom.  Have a safe and happy remainder of term 3 and I look forward to seeing you all again next term.
