As you are aware, regional rolling strikes will take place across the country during week 5 of this term.
ON TUESDAY 13TH NOVEMBER STANLEY AVENUE SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED FOR THE ENTIRE DAY , DUE TO OUR TEACHERS STRIKING TO OPPOSE THE OFFER THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS PROPOSED.
While we realise this will be an inconvenience for all students and whanau, it is necessary for us to support our teachers and principals as they work to achieve the best schooling environment for our students. This will work towards ensuring all students moving forward have quality teacher and learning opportunities.
Currently 50% of teachers are leaving after 5 years of teaching. Additionally there is 40% less teacher trainees coming through than there were 4 years ago.
Kids Club will be operating from 8am til 5.30pm with a fee of $30 for the day. There is a limit of 40 students. If you would like your child booked in , please contact Katarina Kelsey 0272821191.

On Monday Connor brought in a shark jaw that his Grandad’s Boss caught recently. We named it Barry… Barry was a 18 foot Tiger Shark, he was 1 metre wide – imagine how big he was when you look at the size of his jaw!!!
We were amazed at the size of Barry’s jaw, and his teeth which are serrated on two sides of each tooth. So not only do you get chomped by 4 rows of super sharp teeth, you get munched by each tooth has serrated edges on the way through!! OUCH!!
While Barry may seem harmless… Ms Trow wouldn’t like to have met him in person in his homeground….
Connor is going to find out more information about how Barry was caught for us. Thanks for sharing Connor, Mrs Wood and Chloe.
