Weekly Note

We have recently reviewed the Weekly Note Criteria Revised May 2021 and have updated the descriptors. Some of the changes are to remove criteria that no longer apply (such as reference to the School’s Homework Diary which no longer exists). Some of the other changes are to create more consistency of language and progression between grade levels. Despite these changes, there should be no radical changes to the grades that are awarded as the spirit and intent of each grade level has remained the same as the original version. The students have all received an electronic copy of the updated grade descriptors and have had the opportunity to discuss these in Kaitiaki. These changes will take effect as from the Weekly Note at the end of this week (ending Friday 28th May 2021) .

Learning Support

We recognise that some students require additional resources and individual programmes in order to develop social and emotional skills to reach their full potential.

Ehara taku toa
I te toa takitahi
Engari ko taku toa
I te toa takitini

My strength does not lie in
Working alone
Rather my strength lies in
Working with others
