INCLUSIVE PRACTICE SURVEY
(Available 23 July to 31 July)
Riverhead School is carrying out a survey on inclusive practice in conjunction with the Ministry. We would like all members of our school community to share their thoughts on the inclusiveness of our school. We are asking families and whanau to complete a questionnaire (remember this is completely anonymous). The timeframe to complete the survey will be 23 July to 31 July. To access the Inclusive Practices Community Survey Link, go to http://www.nzcersurvey.org.nz/survey_belonging.php?icode=AAws013&ilogin=jfycxsxfj&plogin= , you may also elect to fill in a hard copy if you wish (copies will be left at the office).
MAORI LANGUAGE WEEK - 21 JULY -27 JULY 2014
To celebrate Maori language week and Matariki, Riverhead School is having a week of celebration. We will kick off this amazing week with a powhiri and we are super lucky to have the Whenuapai Airbase Kapahaka performing at our Monday assembly on 21 July @ 8.25am. So make sure you come along to the first assembly for next term. I’m sure they will have the hair on your neck standing to attention!
HAKARI MATAURANGA HANGI
For the completion of our Hakari Matauranga week we will be having a Hangi on Friday 25 July during lunchtime. All family/whanau are invited to come and share in our celebration. Tickets will be on sale from Wednesday 2 July 2014 from the school office until the morning of Friday 25 July. The cost of Hangi tickets will be $10, which includes Pumpkin, Kumara, Potato, Carrot, Cabbage, a selection of meats and a pudding. Students will also have the opportunity to make Paraoa (Maori Bread) throughout the day. The last Hangi was a huge success. The school was packed with whanau, community and friends. So be in quick as tickets will sell fast and there are only 300 available. This is a great opportunity for your child to sample Maori food cooked in a traditional way. We ask that each of our students provide us with a koha of a kumara for the Hangi. The rest of the food has kindly been donated by local businesses and whanau. Kumara will need to be brought to school by Tuesday 22 July and taken to your child’s classroom. We look forward to this day and thank you in advance. Any queries please see Mrs Waters.
