SCHOOL UNIFORM

We remind parents/caregivers that all our students must be correct school uniform.  This means coming and going to school in their polo top, school jersey and school shorts or trackpants. Socks must be ankle length and shoes trainers not sandshoes, slip-ons or ankle boots.  Only black or white long sleeved tops can be worn under the polo tops.  Please remind your child to bring their jackets to school on wet days. If your child does still not have a jacket we provide black KidsCan jacket for free. Contact the school office to organise this. The wearing of uniform is part of taking pride in our school under our ACROSTIC – OUR PLACE.

 

OUR SCHOOL ACROSTIC GUIDELINES

ATTEND,    VALUE,     ASPIRE,     LEADER & LEARNER,    OUR PLACE,     NEVER GIVE UP!

We have spent a great deal of time working alongside AIS students around what our ACROSTIC means re being positive and hardworking.  We expect all students to be following all aspects of the ACROSTIC.  Only the very highest of standards are expected, also I have always been proud of how AIS students look after each other and expect their support of difference to continue.

READING CHALLENGE

We are participating in the Hell Pizza Reading Challenge  which is organized by the NZ Book Awards and sponsored by Hells Pizza. Students who want to participate have a card which is stamped once they have read a book. Once they have read 7 books they are given the completed card to take home and this can be exchanged for a free Hell pizza. Students will be able to have their card stamped by Rose Campbell or Julia Poasa in our school library at lunchtimes. Please encourage your child to take part in this challenge and increase their reading mileage. 

 

 

AIS CROSS COUNTRY

Thankfully the weather cleared and we were able to run the school cross country today. Our students have been training with their class and team over the past 3 weeks to prepare for today’s event. The top 10 Y7 girls, Y7 boys, Y8 girls and Y8 boys will continue training for the interschool cross country event which takes place on Wednesday 6th June at Trentham Memorial Park.

 

 

DENTAL VISIT

Unfortunately due to staffing issues beyond our control, some children which were not seen by the Dental Service when they visted our school in Term 1. 

 

These families will be contacted by the Naenae staff and an appointment will be made at the Naenae Hub Clinic.

 

If a parent/caregiver needs to contact Bee Healthy Regional Dental Service, or has concerns about their child’s teeth or their child has dental pain, they can arrange an appointment simply by calling 0800 TALK TEETH (0800 825 583).
