Kia ora e te whānau, tēnā koutou katoa! Wellington’s typical winter is here now. It is amazing that Tawhirimatea (Guardian of the weather) sometimes treasures us with sunshine, storm and hailing all within a day. This has triggered our tamariki and kaiako’s passion in learning te reo and Māori myths about weather.
Recently, our programme has revolved around celebrating Māori New Year – Matariki. Our teaching team have been implementing activities crossing different curriculum areas for the children to explore Māori culture.
Spring is finally here and we are enjoying the beautiful sun (when it’s actually shining) and getting outdoors. As we embrace the warmer weather nga tamariki have enjoyed planting some snow peas, kale, lettuce and spinach, and getting involved in the gardening. As the year flies by we look forward to what summer has in store for us! Our visit from ERO went very smoothly and they had a lot of positive feedback for us. Our 2016 ERO report is now published on their website.
A warm welcome to the New Year! Our beautiful children have been so busy playing, learning, and enjoying the warm weather that the last few months have given us. The teachers are looking forward to what this new term is going to bring!
Kia ora! Spring is here. The weather is getting warmer and warmer. The birdies nesting in our pine tree are chirping all day long, and the herbs and vegetables in our garden are starting to flourish again.
Spring has sprung! We were off to a rainy start, but have had some lovely sunny days. We’re all looking forward to the warmer days to come. What’s been happening at the Centre? The Education Review Office came to visit us in May, and we have received a very positive report. Thank you all for your support. Our first ERO report is now published on their website.
Recently we are conducting a self-review about our programme. We have further analysed the information that we gathered from our parents-teacher interview, we found out that parents are interested in and would like to know more about our programme…
We had a great turnout at our Open Days last weekend. Thank you to all the families that came along and for all your positive and encouraging feedback. It was great to meet you all!
