Tena koutou, kia orana, talofa lava,

We have our marae visit on Thursday this week. We will be welcomed on to Papa o te Aroha Marae around 11.00 and then have children split into groups where they will find out about the wharenui, have a chance to practice ti rakau, action waiata, and make sketches of the various art types in the wharenui. We anticipate being back at school by 2.30 p.m. We would ask that parents who do not give permission for this visit look after their children for the day as we do are not able to provide programmes at school.

REAL Assembly and Blake Leadership Award - Friday 27th September

On Friday 27th September we will be recognising those children who have received 30 tokens or more in one of our REAL values. At syndicate hui (Juniors 11.00, Seniors 1. 30) we will be presenting certifcates and wristbands. At a special hui at 2.00 we will present REAL T-Shirts to those children who have received 30 tokens or more in all of the REAL values and have not yet been given their T-Shirts. At this same hui we will have Westpac staff present the 2019 Blake Junior Leadership award to one of our students. Parents are welcome to attend any of these hui.

Social Worker in Schools

Show you care:

 If your child does share a worry, avoid intensely questioning or lecturing them. Just listen attentively, be interested and show you care. They may talk to you while you're doing the dishes or in the car and if so, great! They'll be more relaxed when the focus isn't completely on them.

Validate their feelings:

 Voice the feelings you pick up e.g. "That sounds like it's worrying / bothering / bugging you." And thank them for talking with you. Remind them that worrying is normal and can even be helpful - motivating us to study, be alert, focus and run faster.

Which children are routinely checked?

.Catch up screening for children who have not completed vision and hearing checks as part of their B4 School Check

.Children absent from previous visit, require retests or follow up

.New Immigrants

If there is a genuine concern, parents and teachers may request a vision or hearing check  NB; parents must consent to this

What tests are carried out?

Ears - Audiometry (hearing test)Tympanometry - middle ear function test (only carried out when hearing test is not within a normal range)

Eyes - Long distance vision tests - not a complete visual examination, but a simple screening test

NB All of these checks are non-invasive, safe and should cause no discomfort.

The Vision Hearing Technician will:

-  Notify parents of all test results

-  Enter results on Ministry of Education database (Enrol)

The Vision Hearing Technician will obtain personal details from the school ie; names, date of birth.

If the technician needs to contact parents or caregivers following the visit, addresses and phone numbers will also be required.

Our Service may share this information with other health professionals involved in the children's care.

If any parents/caregivers do not want their child to be checked, or their child is currently under specialist care for a vision or hearing defect, they should let the school know

Breakfast Club 8.00 - 9.00 Monday - Friday.

We require more helpers to continue to run this 5 days a week so if you are able to give us 1 hour, one day a week please contact Donna in the office - Phone  8869765

Keeping It REAL

At Strathmore School positive behaviour management is implemented through our Keeping REAL expectation: Respect, Excellence, Attitude and Leadership.

Each week, lessons are delivered around one of these expectations.

Accepting consequences for our behaviour. Te whakaae I nga tukunga iho.

This is our focus for the next 2 weeks. None of us like to accept consequences for things we have done wrong or not completed. Children love getting tokens and the rewards that are given out in class and assemblies. These are positive consequences. We will be focusing on how we are able to accept both the good and bad. When work is completed to a high standard and on time, children get a token. When they don't finish they may lose free time so they are able to complete the work. Children need to understand that throwing a tantrum will not get them out of what they need to be doing. We will be encouraging children accept the consequences and move on.

How you can help at home. Keep the boundaries and rules clear and consistent. If you say no stick to it. Children love and thrive on boundaries. They then have security on what is going to happen. Discuss how it affects others when you don't accept consequences.

New World/Anchor Awards

Each week one child in each class receives a New World/Anchor Student of the Week Certificate. These come with a tear off tab that the child can take in to New World to receive a discounted purchase.  Students of the Week from the last two weeks are

Social Worker in Schools

How to help kids manage worries:

Our tamariki mightn't have to pay bills, cook dinners or organise carpools but just like us they face daily demands and worries, and what seems trivial to us can be important to them. So what can we do to help?

Be a first-rate listener:

 Firstly, think about yourself as a child or young adult. Did anyone make you feel truly listened to? If so, what did they do? Copy this! Be available and interested. Take casual opportunities to ask your tamariki how different things are going. Also, be assured - our brains are malleable and flexible, so children can re-learn coping strategies that don't include lots of worrying. But as always, seek extra help, if you have ongoing concerns.

Keeping It REAL

At Strathmore School positive behaviour management is implemented through our Keeping REAL expectation: Respect, Excellence, Attitude and Leadership.

Each week, lessons are delivered around one of these expectations. During these lessons the children are asked to think about what each of these expectations look like and how they can demonstrate these in different settings e.g. in the classroom, in the hall, in the library, in the office and out in the playground and even at home or out in the community.

Being a good sport - Te whakaatu i te waiaro pai.

This is our focus for Weeks 5 & 6. We will be look at how we react when things don't go to plan. How we work through not being the first to do something, or losing that game we really need to win.

How you can help at home. Being a good sport is not just at game time. We have reading League competition and we need to work as a team all bringing in points.  Discuss how being a good sport affects others.  Make up a list of the qualities a good sport shows.

New World/Anchor Awards

Each week one child in each class receives a New World/Anchor Student of the Week Certificate. These come with a tear off tab that the child can take in to New World to receive a discounted purchase.  Students of the Week from the last two weeks are

Social Worker in Schools

Lead the way:

This one can be a major challenge, as aggressive acts can be hurtful and infuriating! But when you can, react minimally. A calm response will get better results than a red-hot one, helping you diffuse the situation and ‘model' how they should behave when they're upset. Kids love to copy us!

Identify triggers:

 Aggressive acts can emerge when kids are tired, hungry, overwhelmed, or overstimulated and unsure where to focus their energy. They can also come from feeling insecure or undervalued. Ask yourself: When is your tamariki most likely to ‘act out'?

Tena koutou, kia orana, talofa lava,

Welcome back to Term 3.

Classes are focussing on Whakapapa for the first part of this term and will be looking at Marae in the second part of the term.

We welcome Lyrik-lee Whare (NE, Room10) and Tiare Hensleigh-Patena (Y1, R10) to Strathmore School.

Parent/Teacher/Student Review and Goal-setting Interviews - Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 August

We will be holding parent/teacher/student review and goal setting interviews on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th August from 1.00 - 6.00 p.m. The purpose of these conferences is to inform parents of where their child is at, to set goals for the last two terms, and to let parents know how they can support their children at home.

Parent conferencing forms were sent home on Monday and need to be back by Friday 2nd August.

I really would encourage parents to attend these conferences and support your child's learning.

Children will be sent home early on these days, but we would appreciate it if they were brought with you for the conference/s. We may be able to offer limited supervision here at school for those children whose parents are not able to look after them. Please notify the school if you require your child to be supervised for the afternoon.

Parent Help Urgently Needed:

I have a job that urgently needs doing in the library and would really appreciate any help next Wednesday 7th August, from 11 am till 12.30 at the latest. This really is a job where many hands make light work, and rather than having the library closed for a week while I do it myself I'll put out this call for help. It isn't strenuous at all and no lifting is required. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks, Sheryl McIntosh, Librarian.

Breakfast Club 8.00 - 9.00 Monday - Friday.

We require more helpers to continue to run this 5 days a week so if you are able to give us 1 hour, one day a week please contact Donna in the office - Phone  8869765

The Board of Trustees were concerned that not all families had replied to the survey so have set up a small group to investigate further into uniforms and look at some possible sample uniforms and costs for these, at which point parents will be surveyed again for their views.

Keeping It REAL

At Strathmore School positive behaviour management is implemented through our Keeping REAL expectation: Respect, Excellence, Attitude and Leadership.

Each week, lessons are delivered around one of these expectations. During these lessons the children are asked to think about what each of these expectations look like and how they can demonstrate these in different settings e.g. in the classroom, in the hall, in the library, in the office and out in the playground and even at home or out in the community.

Our Keeping it REAL focus for Weeks 3 & 4  is Hautu - Leadership: We show others what to do. Ka whakaaturia e matou ki etahi atu te aha hei mahi.

This is our focus for the next 2 weeks. We would like children to understand and know that others are watching and following what we do, so let's be the very best we can be.  . Our job is to encourage and develop good leadership qualities.

How you can help at home.

Be that awesome role model for your child or children. Encourage older family members to take on the mantle of being an awesome leader that your family can follow and aspire to being. Discuss who good leaders are in the family. Make up a leaders board where your child children can add to it.

New World/Anchor Awards

Each week one child in each class receives a New World/Anchor Student of the Week Certificate. These come with a tear off tab that the child can take in to New World to receive a discounted purchase.  Students of the Week from the last two weeks are

Social Worker in Schools

Be a positive role model:

Most of what our tamariki learn about emotions comes from us. How we respond to our own worries, stress and frustrations will inform how our kids learn to deal with everyday challenges. By showing you feel different emotions and can bounce back, you'll help them learn to respond to small problems with optimism, calmness and confidence.  During stressful times you could even say, "I feel frustrated that I keep making mistakes, so I might just have a quick break and then come back to it".

Build their self-esteem:

 Our children are learning how to adjust their behaviour in almost every situation. Ensure you do lots to help them feel good about who they are and show that you love them unconditionally. Praise specific behaviour. E.g. rather than just "good girl" try "I love the way you tidied up."

Our Keeping it REAL focus for Weeks 9 & 10 is Respect - Looking after School Property - Te Tiaki te Whare Kura

We are discussing and showing children how to care for the school's property. This is showing Respect. The school spends a lot of money on equipment for children to use. Teachers spend time money and energy making activities for children. Most readers that the children take home cost between $10.00 and $15.00 each. When children lose, draw on them or cover them in food this costs the school to replace them. We spend money on sports equipment that disappears or gets broken because children are not using it for the intended use.

How you help at home. Discuss with your child/children how much these resources cost. Return books every day. If they bring something home from school that you think belongs to the school return it. Check at home for school readers. Show children how to care for them. Expect children to show respect for their own belongs.

What makes a good daily routine?

There are no rules about how many or what kind of routines you should have. All families are different, and what works well for one family might not work for another.

Your routines need to be based on your individual family needs. But effective routines do share three key features:

Well planned: in a good routine, everyone understands their roles, knows what they need to do and sees their roles as reasonable and fair. For example, your children know that they take turns with washing up and drying up each night after dinner.

Regular: good routines become part of everyday family life. For example, you might all look forward to Sunday night barbecues with your children's grandparents.

Predictable: in a good routine, things happen in the same order each time. For example, you always wash school uniforms on the weekend, so you know they'll be ready for Monday morning.

Routines for children with disabilities can be a big help. They can be even more important for children who find it hard to understand or cope with change.
