Notices 5 April

Dear Parents,

End of Term One

Term One finishes on Friday, 13 April.  Term Two begins on Monday, 30 April.

Our Board is meeting again on Monday, 9 April, to consider how to staff the school next term. Initially, I will still be able to work for Living Way for two days each week, but we need to have enough staffing for the other days.  I will give you more details about this after the Board meeting.

We have very much appreciated all the volunteer helpers we have had at school this term and we hope you can continue to support the school in this way next term.  Not only do we benefit from having the extra help in the classroom, but I think it is good for the students to have the interaction with our parent helpers, and I trust that our parent helpers are finding it rewarding being so involved in the day to day activities of the classroom.  It was this close involvement of parents that was at the heart of our school in its early years, and I am so grateful to have this support now, as we grapple with our current challenges




FOS Meeting:- deferred until Tuesday, 1 May, 7.30 -9.00 pm

Our next FOS meeting was scheduled for Monday, 9 April, but we have decided to postpone it until the first week of next term because I inadvertently double booked this date with our Board meeting.  Please accept my apologies for this mistake and please note this change of date on your calendar.

Minutes of the last meeting [5/2/18] are attached.  Please check to see if you have any tasks still to complete since our last meeting.

FOS Meeting 5 Feb 2018


End of Term Night: Creativity Showcase – cancelled

We had planned to end our term with an event in which the children could show/perform creative items that they had been working on at home on Home Days.  However, it seems only two families have been doing this and so we have decided to cancel the event.

For those families who have been working on creative projects I would still like to give recognition to your children for their hard work, so if you can bring in what they have made we can show the class, and can also put photographs in our newsletter and on our website.


School holidays – keep paying your fees, please!

Our Board is concerned that we sometimes have families get behind in paying their fees during school holidays.  For those of you who are not paying by automatic payment, please remember to keep paying your fees through the holiday period so that you don’t get behind.  We really need you to keep up to date with your payments, please.

About the Author:

Mr T

I have been the Principal at Living Way since 1999, when my wife and I and our family moved here from Auckland.
We have loved being part of the Wellsford community, our local church community, and of course, the school community at Living Way.
I believe strongly in the value of Christian Education to help parents raise children that are strong and healthy, who love God and who will make a positive difference in the world around them.
