Greetings to our Weymouth families and everyone in your bubble.


A memory to share when Tayla graduated. 

These are my parents Emil and Clare and my husband Seti, and my two children Tayla and Marcel.

 

I hope you are all doing well in our new norm for the next wee while. It is certainly interesting times and I feel that with all the information available on all social media platforms that you have plenty to do with your children.  

There have certainly been some great suggestions; clean the house, teach your child how to change a tyre, cook a meal etc. I am loving the ‘teddy bears in the windows’ – hope you are spotting some when you go for your daily exercise. 

I am currently in my bubble with my husband Seti, and my daughter Tayla who you all know and my son Marcel and of course my dog Malibu. I feel blessed having this time, as we can get so busy in our lives we forget to STOP and just breathe and enjoy our own families. We have had lovely home cooked meals every night. It is so good not being able to have access to takeaways. We have also managed to do exercise too – usually when I am working I am too tired to do exercise but now I am loving it. I walk my dog every day and then we all do a workout. We have also managed to do lots of work around our house which we never seem to get around to. I am lucky my husband is a builder, as he has certainly been busy during this lockdown.

I hope you are still enjoying your learning packs. Mrs Iese has also updated the website and there are lots of activities you can do. Parents there are also lots of tips on keeping everyone safe when online. There is also lots of support phone numbers or websites for families if you are needing some support at this time. Please take advantage of them. 

The Ministry of Education is working closely with schools to determine what the future will look like if we have to stay in lockdown for longer. So when we get further down the line I will update you all. 

For now, keep doing what you are doing. Enjoy this special time together and think of this time as a much-needed platform to be with those we love.  

One week down team!!! We can do this. Be Kind. Stay in your bubbles. Be Safe.

Kia ora koutou, talofa lava and warm greetings to our Weymouth Community,   parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and our beautiful tamariki.

Wow, I can't believe we are over half way through Term 1. At our school we serve our community through setting a vision, direction and strategy where every child achieves success to their potential. We seek to provide quality teacher and learning for every child every day where everyone is responsible. We work together so that all children experience success and have their success celebrated. We believe in creating opportunities where every student can dream what their futures could like. We do not strive alone. We build deep and strong relationships with our school, children, families and communities. 

This year our theme is 'To Infinity and Beyond'. Term 1 is 'We Nestle' Ko Wai Au? Who am I?Term 2 is 'We Fledge' Term 3 is 'We Fly' and Term 4 is 'We Soar'. Our school culture is built on agentic approaches, relational trust and effective participation and collaboration at all levels.

At this time of uncertainty with the Coronavirus, we ask our community to look after yourselves first. Remember to keep washing hands regularly and clean surfaces too. It is also important to stay away if you are sick. 


A huge thank you to our board of trustees for providing free stationery, hats and trips for all our students. 

School uniforms are compulsory. Please feel free to come and see me if you need support in this area.  Cheryldene also runs a breakfast club in the hall every day from 8.30 to 9.00am. We also provide sandwiches and crackers for students who need lunch.  We will supply bread, spreads and muesli bars supplied by Kids Can. 
 
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 attendance@weymouthprimary.school.nz
 
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.
