School Leaders

On behalf of the school I congratulate our elected School Leaders for 2015. Anna, Amanda, Jacob, Laurelle, Andreas, Parixit, Fononga, Saitutuila and Matthew are the successful children. We also extend a thank you to the children who applied but did not get selected.

Our advice is try again in 2016, as the selection was very close and difficult to make. Even though you were not selected this time, many of you were very close.

The selection process was very rigorous with applicants needing to apply through a letter expressing how they would perform and act in the important role of School Leader. The children elected as School Leaders act as ambassadors for Netherby School, welcoming guests, leading by example and exercising those Pride Values explicitly.

Tip For Parents

Give your child every opportunity to read to you daily. Ten minutes of reading five times a week = 50 minutes of reading time a week.

If you did this for a minimum of 35 weeks a year we have your child engaging in text for 29 hours extra every year! That 29 hours helps your child read better because they do more miles, are exposed to many words, and importantly are exposed to many ideas through the text.

It is a win - win for all concerned!
