Titoki Newsletter Term 2 Week 4 ending 26 May 2017

Meet Ashleigh!

This week we welcome Ashleigh Elmslie who will replace Gabe when she goes on Maternity Leave. Ashleigh has recently moved to Auckland from Queensland where she has been teaching since graduating in 2014.  She lives locally in Freemans Bay and she can’t wait to get to know the area better. Ashleigh is in school this week to get to know the children as well as our routines so please come and say hi and introduce yourself.

Gabe’s last day will be 9th June (all going well…).  Gabe had intended to return to school in Term 4 however her partner has some work in the Hawkes Bay so she will be moving there and won’t return to Bayfield this year. 

Cross Country
Well done to all children who ran in the cross country and thank you to all parent helpers. We will hand out cross country certificates in the whole school assembly on Friday. Please feel free to come along.

Term 2 Trip:
Next Tuesday 30th May (week 5) the Titoki team will be going to the Stardome Observatory. Due to timings of sessions available at the centre, we will be leaving school at 8.15am.  Children will need to arrive at school by 8.10am on the day. Unfortunately, Stardome only allow a limited number of adults and we now have all the helpers we need.

Now that we have finished cross country, we are focusing on skipping as our new P.E. activity. A skipping rope makes a great gift as this develops children’s gross motor skills and co-ordination. Later this term we will invite you to a skip-a-thon event. We will post details about this closer to the time.

Kind regards,
Gabe, Ashleigh, Lorraine, Victoria and Kate
