Classroom Meetings

We hold these informal meetings three times a year - in terms 1, 2, and 3.  They are a chance to see what happens in the classroom, have your child show off the work they are proud of, listen to them speak in a public setting, and chat with their teacher.  Many thanks for coming to this.  Please keep an eye out for the date of the term 2 classroom meeting, in your child's classroom.



Parent/Teacher/Student Interviews

After school on Wednesday and Thursday directly after Easter, teachers will be meeting with parents and caregivers along with each student, and setting learning goals for the next term or so.  The goals are in reading, writing and maths as they are our core curriculum areas.  Students will talk about these goals, teachers will say what they will be doing to help with these, and will provide ideas in how the students can be helped at home.

Each interview is 20 minutes, and there will be time to discuss other areas of learning, as well as any concerns the teacher, student or parent or caregiver has. This is a very important event in our school calendar, and every effort is made to meet with each student's caregivers or parents.  All educational research indicates that when the school works closely with families, children have a more positive time at school.



School closed on Friday April 8

Please note that Avalon Intermediate will be closed to students on this day.  We are hosting a Maths Symposium, which all our classroom teachers will be attending. Technology classes for students from other schools will not be affected.


End Of Term Assembly


This important occasion is happening next week, Wednesday April 13, at 11.10am in the school hall.  It is a chance to celebrate the successes and activities from the first term, and to hear about the start of the year from different perspectives.  Please come and support us as our Rangatira lead the assembly.



Congratulations to all students involved in the creation of the Healthy Wrap. We won the NZ Vegetarian Society video competition, Intermediate category.
