Dear parents and caregivers
I wish you all a very happy festive season and welcome you to a wonderful New Year.
For the start of the 2016 academic year Wairakei Primary School will be opting for a collaborative approach to how we set up the classrooms and teaching spaces. We have arranged the children into similar age levels and formed learning communities across the school.
There are four learning communities names after our local Power Stations.
All learning communities will be focussing on the literacies of Reading, Writing and Mathematics integrated through all other curriculum areas. Our 2016 major school topics will be Turangawaewae, Systems and Functions.
This is a very exciting development for Wairakei Primary School. The staff and I look forward to maintaining our ‘high-impact’ academic performance for every child attending your school.
Enjoy your summer and I will see you all in 2016.
Not yet enrolled? No problem— we would be delighted if you joined us. We will be accepting new enrolments begining January 25. The school office will be open for 2016 enrolment and stationery information 9a.m.–3p.m.
