Reminder Notice 09 May 2017



Every year the Glendene School Board of Trustees decides on whether we will run this programme.  At our last Board of Trustees meeting, it was decided we will continue to run this programme.

The programme runs on Thursdays at lunchtime for half an hour.  The programme begun last week and will continue on Thursdays until 30 November.  My apologies for leaving this out of our last school newsletter.

If children choose to attend Champions, they have to stay for the whole half an hour.  If you do not wish your child to attend please let your child know and if necessary, your child’s teacher so they can remind them not to attend.

  • WHANAU LEARNING – LITERACY WAITAKEREJust a reminder that we have our Whanau Learning – Literacy Waitakere for parents and wider community in our Heke Hub.  This term Whanau Learning will be covering ESOL – English as a Second Language and also other topics that you might like to know more about.  This is an excellent opportunity for you to come along and meet other parents, have a coffee and find out what Whanau Learning has to offer you and your family.  Dates will follow when we confirm numbers on when Whanau Learning will start.  Hope to see you all there J
