Condolences

Our thoughts and aroha are with two families and friends this week. 

First is the passing away of a fellow colleague at Orewa Primary School, Nicky Clark after a short illness over the weekend. She was a much loved teacher at Orewa Primary School and the community will sorely miss her.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the family and friends of Constable Matthew Hunt after his tragic death on Friday. Matthew was an ex student of Orewa North School and Orewa College and was born and bred on the coast. To our police Whānau we stand with you and our hearts go out to you at this time of mourning.   

 

Welcome

Welcome to Keira Saddam, Jaco Munnik, Harper Oldfield, Nathan Kotze and Addison Nicholls. Our current roll is 784.

 

Happy Birthday 

Happy birthday to Alexander Patton, Oliver Simonson, Kingsley Cai, Anna Thongtawee, Alex Huettner, Cohen Fuller, Ido Khusid, Myan Nithi, Leo Pienaar, Morgan Lusher, Isabella Pretorius, Alice Bauld, Catherine Cai and Jordan Johansen.

Children Who Need Extra Support

These arrangements are our preferred way of dropping off and picking up. These arrangements are working for the majority of our children. We have found that  children have adapted very well to being dropped at the gate in the mornings and getting to class on their own. They have shown great independence in getting ready for learning once they arrive at class. They are able to unpack their bags, put away their lunch box and drink bottle. Once in the class they then find their friends and play or work with the teacher until the 8.55am bell goes. 

At the end of the day the teacher will walk them to the pre-arranged spot for pick up.

This organisation has worked very well for our children and we will monitor any child who is not coping well with this arrangement and work with the parents/caregivers to overcome any concerns.
