Kia ora Whānau,
I can't believe we are half way through the term already. The photographs above are of our two senior classes from Pohutukawa Rima and Pohutukawa Waru holding desk sales to raise funds for beginning and end of year picnics.
The tamariki from our senior classes showed tuakana/teina by using the key competencies. As teina they showed Kōwhai tamariki how to participate and contribute, what relating well to others looks like, how to manage themselves, and problem how to problem solve by using language symbols and texts.
We are exploring whether we open our school up to the Community next year so please be on the look out for the survey about this.

Our school vision is together, Glendene School and its community will empower our children with knowledge, confidence and opportunities to achieve our best always.
We strive to give Glendene School students many rich learning experiences during their time at Glendene School and your assistance would be warmly welcomed. If you have skills and talents you want to share with the children or to enrich our school, please contact us.
We begin every year by learning about each other and our place - Ko Wai Au/Ko Wai Mātou. It was great to see you all at Cornwallis Beach.
We encourage you to come in and get to know us and what we do. In 2020 our learning from term 2 onwards will be about Te Hau/The Wind and it's effect on our ancestors, living things and the future.
We have learning meetings with students, teachers and parents twice a year and we report on student progress and achievement in writing at the end of the year, with a short report at mid-year. We also have learning celebration (whakanui/fiafia days) during the year where you can come in and see your children learning.
Please note there will be NO school fees in 2020.
