Principal’s Message Term 1, Week 3
Adult Tutor Reading Programme
Fairfield School runs an adult tutor reading programme where parents/grandparents or wider whānau members volunteer their time to read with our students, individually. This support provides invaluable reading time for our students as they receive one on one reading time with tutors. We would be incredibly grateful if you have a free hour, once a week, to support our students. If you are interested please contact Yvonne Nicholson ph 368 5513, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Planning is well underway with just over 3 weeks to go! Keep those helper forms coming in to the office, and a big thank you to those who have already returned their forms. We can’t have a successful gala without your help, and as you can imagine there is plenty of work to do. Flyers for mail drops will be available this week, collected from the office.
- Next Gala Meeting – This Thursday, 20th Feb 7pm, staffroom.
- Gala Working Bee – Saturday 7th March 10am.
- Gala 11th March 5pm – 7pm.
Last week the following sports began; water polo, cricket. Payments are due now. Shortly notices will be sent out regarding Summer 7’s Football and Netball. For more information check out our sports noticeboard by the school office, or visit the school website/sports page.
We have recently updated our computer system with a great addition. This now means we can now notify our families by email/text of upcoming events, sports etc, with the ability to reply with an electronic signature, this is a great way of ensuring everyone is aware of upcoming events, and with a click of a button you can register your child. I will update you more on this shortly.
Updating Contact Details/Medical Records
We are currently updating our records to ensure all contact details on file are up-to-date. This week all students will bring home a form for you to check/update and return to the office/teacher urgently. Please also let us know if your child has medication they may require during school hours e.g asthma inhalers, antibiotics.
