Principal’s Message, Term 3, Week 9

Kia ora koutou,

We were privileged to have John Parsons in school last week. He worked with the students, staff and parents on cyber safety; how to keep ourselves safe online. Below are some useful links and information that John has asked me to share.

If you missed the first session, we are going to run a second session. Come and have your say!  The board is currently in the process of reviewing the school vision and direction for the next three years. They would love to have your input into what this would look like for our school and community. Your input is really appreciated.  All you need to prepare for this is to come along with ideas.  We are asking for no more than 45 minutes of your time on Wednesday, 23rd September, 6pm to 6:45pm in the school hall.  The school board and I look forward to seeing you there.

Luke Martin was nominated this year as our recipient for the Sir Peter Blake Young Leaders Award on behalf of Fairfield School.  Luke is an exceptional young leader who demonstrates his leadership skills on a daily basis.  He was part of the William Pike Challenge Award last year and found this successful.  Luke applied to be part of our William Pike programme again this year as a leader to help mentor other participants and he has done a fantastic job. Luke is involved in the wider community and has volunteered his time as part of community service.  He helps others in our school setting and is a model for his peers.  Well done Luke!
