Kia Ora Koutou
In last weeks newsletter I highlighted how I felt about (successful) organisations receiving support from volunteers.
The school is able to do a whole raft of things over and above what the Ministry of Education offers because the community
comes into the school, staff volunteer to do extra or donate their personal time or resources, volunteers work alongside staff
and help, volunteers donate or raise valuable additional funding.
You don’t have to go far to find examples!
Last Thursday and Friday our Y3/4 students travelled to Queenstown to experience and learn about our history, our environment ..... as Mr Enright said the seeds are being sown for the future historians, designers, builders, teachers, miners ....
Camps are an extra in the curriculum and have a high cost ... but because people volunteer to help and because groups like
our PTA create additional funding all children are able to attend even when costs might have become prohibitive.
I guess it starts with the attitude and the quality of the staff ... they want our children to learn outside of the classroom. Going
outside the normal sort of curriculum thinking means a whole lot of extra work for teachers, a lot of it is done ‘in their own
time’, but our current group of teachers are prepared to do that.
Then when the planning, risk analysis, approvals, and organisation are in place - teachers need a whole heap of extra (quality) personnel to be ‘teacher aides’ and help our children learn, feel and be safe.
Our Queenstown camp (the ‘untie the apron strings’ experience) was a huge success. The feedback already has reenforced the value of making this sort of learning available to our children.
Mick Enright, Glenis and myself all were lucky enough to see and experience the camp in action at various stages.
Well done teachers and parents and grandparents and other friends of the school that made the camp such a success.
Our next big experience for the children is The Terrace and then the Central Otago Athletics Sports. The organisation for
these events is huge so any help you can give would be much appreciated.
Our BOT has a policy of trying to ensure that all children can take part in all school activities. I mentioned how sometimes
the cost of camps can ‘rock’ families. The BOT doesn’t want funding or lack of it to stop a child from going. Just talk to me. I
can organise the BOT’s funds. The child doesn’t need to miss out and we know parents will get involved in fundraising, like
the Golf Classic or helping at things like the Athletics, or in school activities, like in and around the classrooms or school gardens.... we can make it work for our children.
Noho ora mai ra.
