Apologies as there were two conflicting messages in the newsletter this week, with one saying tomorrow is only a Bake Sale, and the other saying it is Mufti and a Bake Sale.

Lunch Box IdeasFri Aug 19 11:18am
We have noticed an increasing number of packets in children’s lunchboxes lately. Whilst the food within these packets is tasty, and a great snack, often the children are hungry again soon after eating these items. We are encouraging our children to include more than just packets, and to have a mixture of items in their lunch box. This way they can fuel their bodies and brains for a busy school day. Please find attached some lunch box ideas and inspiration.

The Junior Class (Ruma Papa) and the Middle Class (Ruma Awa) will be using Seesaw.
Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.
Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.
Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
Download the app or open Seesaw here.
