Home - School Partnership

Student learning progress is achieved by the school and home working in partnership.  At home you can support your child’s by spending time with them to play games together, talking about current events, doing family chores, watching documentaries, and reading,

Home Learning Programme:

Your child may bring home an outline for the week’s home learning.  It is optional.  It may include:

* Specific and generic tasks set by the teacher (some of which may be accessed from website).

* Student self-selected learning tasks to practice learning.

* Student self-selected learning tasks to complete.

Reading Together Programme:

Parents of junior children will be offered training in a Reading Together Programme to help with reading at home.

Mathematics:

In Term One we will offer an afternoon and evening session on how to support you child at home in mathematics.   

We welcome and value parent involvement in our school. You may wish to be involved by providing help in your child/ren’s classroom, assisting with transport on trips or by joining the Fundraising Committee or working bees. When visiting the school, please report to the Office.

Parent support in classrooms is negotiated with teachers and parents and based on learning needs. You are welcome to contact the classroom teacher or principal if you are interested in providing support.

Library

We have a small library for parents. At the moment the library includes books on family planning, pubertal change, parenting as well as a copy of the New Zealand Curriculum and National Standards. If you would like to view the library or borrow some books, please see Tina in the Office.
