On the back of this newsletter is some information from Regional Public Health in regards to influenza outbreaks. Please if your child is unwell call the office to let us know and keep them home until they are feeling well and free from symptoms, this helps to stop the outbreak of flu in the school.


We have had prospective Year 6 students visit AIS over the last 2 weeks, we hope they enjoyed their day here. All students were given an enrolment pack, a reminder to these parents if you wish your child to attend AIS in 2020, please return the enrolment forms asap, so that we can start our planning for next year.

Also a reminder to all our Year 8 parents that you should also be returning college enrolment forms. Colleges start planning early and students need to often select subjects or have interviews prior to next year.

On Tuesday I went to The Matariki party with Judith, Hilton, Nadiyah, and Rangimarie.  There  were 2 goats and 2 donkeys .  They were nice to touch.  There were some students from another school doing Poi E .  I played basketball with Rangimarie.  I loved it.  By Lennox
