Kia ora Parents and Caregivers,
This term we are replacing the word respect with care, although the indicators that fall out of the word ‘care’ will be the same.
i.e. 1. Care for self, 2. Care for others, 3. Care for our environment.
By caring for ourselves we will always do our best (using our gifts) at work and and play; we will keep ourselves healthy by making good choices about our safety, what we eat and how we choose to react to different situations.
By caring for others we will be kind and let others share their ideas, include them in work and play, be tolerant of each others cultures and differences.
By caring for our environment we will continue to take care of all animals, trees, flowers etc. We will ensure we pick up rubbish to prevent harm to our waterways and the animals that live in or near. We will keep our classrooms tidy and use the equipment and books carefully.
These three important components of ‘care’ should be carried through to your child’s home life so that they develop into good citizens.
We would like to welcome the following new students to our school: Zenobia Li, Phoebe Li, Laylor Kemp, Isla Hmailton, Luis Antonio, Jakob Yang, Olivia Yang, Ashel Mayadunnage and Raynal Mishra.

May all who belong to my family – whanau, my class, my school, my parish my country, be blessed with gifts from our Gracious God. May we share our gifts with others, be tolerant and take on new challenges; may we make wise choices and look after the environment, so that we all may live in joy and peace through Jesus Christ. Amen.
