Term Letter

Kia ora parents/caregivers,

A warm welcome to you as we begin the school year together in Room 5. We have had a great couple of weeks getting to know each other and our classroom. 

Thank you for getting your child’s stationary promptly. It has been great to begin working in our new books. Also a big thank you for contributing to your child’s home learning book.

In term 1 Room 5 will be swimming every Tuesday and Thursday, and children are able to use the pool at lunchtimes so please ensure your child brings their togs daily.

Our Inquiry learning this year is about being a Rotokawa Akonga with a focus on Citizenship. We will initially be exploring what it means to be Rotokawa school citizen, and branching out throughout the year into what it means to be a Rotokawa community citizen and Rotorua citizen.

It was great to meet most of you at recent Korero Mai. Feel free to pop in and say hello if I have not met you, you can also email me 

Kind regards,

Debbie Nurkka
