At Weymouth Primary School we have a vision "Strive for the Best" our values "respect & honest" and our Weymouth Way: We think. We help. We learn. We care. We work hard to ensure these are integral in our teaching and learning programmes and would love our families to help support in the home.
Congratulations to our Project WY young leaders who have been working on a leadership programme with their parents. They have also been preparing for a 10km marathon on Saturday 4th May to run alongside their mum or dad. Well done team. I was impressed with your training and preparation. Also in the holidays they had a 3 day workshop where they visited the Museum, Art Gallery and AUT.
Well done to Skyla, Austen and Sam who attended the Te Mana Conscious Climat Summit with Whaea Willi-Anne. I know they learnt lots and will share their knowledge with the rest of our school.
Well done to our Rangi team who worked hard to fundraise and take their classes to Goat Island, another wonderful experience for our children who had never been snorkelling or crossed the Harbour Bridge.
As you know our build has started in rooms 17 to 20. Our senior classes have moved into the hall and the library for a term and are enjoying collaborating with other children and teachers.
School uniforms are compulsory. Please feel free to come and see me if you need support in this area. We have our tuck shop continuing with Jamie looking after the orders. Cheryldene also runs a breakfast club in the hall every day from 8.30 to 9.00am. At this time children can also make some lunch for themselves too. We will supply bread, spreads and muesli bars for them to make their lunch.
Attendance. This year we want every child to come to school every day. If your child can not come please contact us by: Skool loop app and leave a message, the school website and leave a message or phone 269 0595 or text 0278476956 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Communication. It is important we can contact families at all times. If your details have changed please pop into the office and let us know. We try to communicate via our newsletter, emails and our newest form of communication is Skool loop app which you can download on your phone and at all times know what is happening. On our website we also update all the upcoming events all the time.
Finally my door is always open, so please feel free to come and see me any time. We are here to serve our children and community through providing quality teaching and learning every day where we are all responsible.
