2018 Term 3 Week 8 - Fortnite Online Game

We are becoming increasingly aware of and concerned about many of our students playing the online game Fortnite. This game is recommended for those 12 years and over and seems to be extremely addictive. 
Many children are staying up late and spending many hours on the game each night. We have definitely noticed changes in behaviour and energy levels of children who play the game regularly.
While we do not have control over what your children do while at home, we recommend that you make yourself aware of what your children are accessing on the internet. If you are allowing your child to play Fortnite, please also consider a time limit each day or week and balancing it with outdoor play and face-to-face interaction with friends and family.

Mālō e lelei Glen Innes Whanau

Tongan Language Week was a great success with students (and teachers) making a concerted effort to learn Tongan words and phrases! Tongan Language Week ended today with a colourful assembly that included beautiful singing and some very graceful Tongan dancing! Students even got to try some authentic Tongan food prepared by our amazing staff - thank you very much!

2018 Term 3 Week 5 - Wednesday Programme

Students in Rooms 10 & 11 are reminded of the programme every Wednesday before school. This programme allows students to acquire and model the key competencies, such as managing self, participating and contributing, thinking, relating to others and understanding symbols and texts.

We also have Homework Club on Wednesday afternoons where students are able to get help with school work.

Please encourage your child to make use of these opportunities.

We had our first "Math Together" workshop on Tuesday afternoon - thank you to those parents who attended. If you couldn't make it on Tuesday there's still time to join us. This is an awesome opportunity for whanau to find ways to help their children with Math.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

2018 Term 3 Week 3 - Volley Ball

The students really enjoyed their volleyball lesson on Wednesday. They learnt the correct way to stand to receive the ball, they also learnt how to correctly hold their hands when hitting a volleyball. We had to have our lesson in the hall as the skies opened up during our lesson.
Great fun and learning was had by all!
