Welcome Back

Kia ora koutou.

I trust this notes finds you all rested and well for 2017.

We are open for enrolments from today. There is almost always someone about so if you know of someone intending on coming to Netherby School please let them know we are open for school enrolments now.

School officially opens for all children on Tuesday 31 January. We will start with a small assembly to welcome everyone back.

Our school Charter, Strategic and Annual Plan are drafted and available to read under BOT on this site. Please give comment on the Comment Sheet and forward to me or come in and discuss the idea or suggestion in person. We value your input.  These documents with any new input will be taken to the Board meeting to ratify in time to submit these documents to the Ministry of Education on March 1 2017.

Look forward to seeing you all.

Regards Phil Wheeler, Principal

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!
