Tena koutou, kia orana, talofa lava,

Our senior Syndicate children are off to camp on Sunday. We wish them all the best for their camp and know they'll have a great time while they are in Wellington.

Strathmore School Matariki Celebration

On Thursday the 6th of July we plan to celebrate Matariki, new beginnings, by celebrating learning at Strathmore school. We would love to see you all there.

This is a special occasion for the children to share their achievements and progress so far this year. The children will be telling you about all the neat things that they do at school and you can ask them more about their learning.

We will begin our celebration from 5:30pm onwards and encourage you all to bring along all of your whanau to share in this celebration of learning.

Please bring a plate of food to share for our supper.

Looking forward to seeing you all here at Strathmore School

Wellington Camp - Rooms 1, 2, & 8

With camp next week it is timely for parents to check that they have all the items their child needs for the week. It is a good idea to ensure clothing etc. is named and a list of what is in their bag attached.

Reminder - Please send in a tin of fruit and a packet of biscuits with your child this week if you have not already done so.

Keep your eye on our Facebook page next week for pictures and updates from the campers.

Flying Start - Pre School Programme - Thursdays

Do you have a child who is 4½ years old or know of someone who has? Give them a flying start! Enrol them in Strathmore School's innovative new transition to school programme. This runs on Thursdays from 9.00 to 3.00 p.m. (2.40 in Terms 2 & 3). For more information and to enrol visit the school office or phone 886 9765.

Bringing your child to Flying Start programme helps them to transition to school and become part of the Strathmore school whanau.

This term we are providing some informal information sessions to help you to learn more about Strathmore School and other community services that are available to help our children be successful, safe and healthy learners.

We would love for you to attend the following sessions which will be held in Room 14 on Thursdays from 2.10 - 2.40 over the next few weeks. Afternoon tea will be provided.

22 June                  Let's talk Teeth- Community Dental Service

Noodles : A reminder that children who are bringing in Noodles must have a lidded container (there are some very good ones at the Warehouse or either Supermarket in town) and a plastic spoon or fork. Noodles are made with hot water therefore it is very important the containers will handle this. Plastic containers with lid and handle are best for this.

Social Worker in Schools

Help your child go to school

- talk to them about why it is important to go to school each day

- help them get to school on time

- set good habits for going to school from day one

- get to know child's teacher and the school - it will make it easier to talk to them if a problem arises

- try to keep family holidays outside of term time - it makes it more difficult for your child if they have missed several days in a row

- on the morning that your child will be away, contact the school to let them know

- if your child is in the habit of not going to school, set the routine of going regularly from the first day of term, or the first day of a new week.

Ariana can be contacted any time by leaving a message with Christine Collier at the office on 886 9765

With Senior Syndicate Camp coming up at the end of the term the senior school are busy learning about things related to what they will be doing while on camp - ANZAC, Zoos and Government.

Our Juniors are focussing on being healthy and safe children with rooms doing a range of work around Firewise, safety on the road, and healthy eating and will be doing a unit on Matariki later in the term.

Strathmore Reading League

We will be running our Reading League competition again this year with two rounds of competition - round one starting this Friday (Friday 5th May).

The programme aims to get children interested in reading with their parents at home through a league style competition.

We have a book exchange here at school that children can make use of to take books home for parents to read to them.

Attached to this newsletter is an information sheet regarding our Reading League Competition. All children are placed into one of 8 Reading League teams based on the house they are in here at school.

We ask parents to read to them or hear their reading for 15 minutes a night and record this on a sheet in their reading league recording books.

Reading to children is the most effective way to increase children's known vocabulary especially if new words are explained to them.

When they bring their books each Friday they go to their Reading League room where they read with a buddy and have their points totalled.

An assembly is then held on Friday afternoon where children nominated most valuable players for the week for each team are announced. They receive a small gift and are able to choose a book to keep from the reading league box.

At the end of each round of competition the winning team receive a book each to keep.

Parents are most welcome to come along to read to children during the league meetings on Friday mornings from 9.00 - 9.20 and to attend the Friday assemblies from 2.25 to 2.40 when MVPs and winning teams for the week are announced.

Reminder - Early finish Terms 2 & 3

A reminder that school finishes at 2.40 every day during Terms 2 & 3. We have a shortened lunch break from 12.30 - 1.10 to enable this.

Many of us will have either had family/friends or know of someone who has been helped by the Westpac Helicopter. This service is not government funded therefore we have decided to support this appeal and invite children to come to school on Friday with their wacky hairstyles and make a gold coin donation. This can be dropped off at the office.

All funds raised will stay in our area for the local chopper.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

PTA Meeting - Tuesday 16th May

There will be a PTA meeting held at 3.00 p.m. on Tuesday 16th May in the staffroom. Parents are encouraged to attend and consider how PTA funds should be used to support children's learning. Teachers have put forward a number of requests for funding support. Leave your children to play in the grounds while you come along and have your say.
