Dear parents and caregivers,

This week has been a rather sporting week. A group of Year 4 to 6 students has been selected to participate in the Papatoetoe Schools sports enhancement programme which is organised by the staff of Counties Manukau Sport. A group of Year 5 students have been taking part this week and have enjoyed the many different sporting opportunities being offered.

Dear parents and caregivers,

Welcome back to term 2. This is a very busy term, just like all the others. Over the next few weeks teachers will be assessing children in readiness for mid year reports. We had a very settled start to the term on Monday and we are all looking forward to a focused and productive term of learning.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

We have already reached the end of Term 1 after a very busy and successful term of learning at Papatoetoe Central School. I am sure you will join me in thanking the wonderful staff at PCS for all their work in planning and providing stimulating learning experiences for your children. During the 2 week break, it is a good idea to keep your children practicing their reading and writing skills – visiting the library, helping parents write a shopping list, sending an email to a friend or family member about a special holiday activity, making a plan for a family outing – and to enjoy some outdoor pursuits before we reach the winter weather. Let’s hope the Blues keep on their winning ways during the break…and maybe the Mystics will finally get a win.

Dear parents and caregivers,

Our wonderful late summer continues. Our staff and students are maximising the opportunity to ensure a robust fitness and sport programme for all students on our school field and at the Papatoetoe pools. During break times it is so good to see children outside racing around and making the most of the warm and dry conditions. I believe that their physical fitness levels are much higher than they were at this time last year, as a result. Our winter sports teams have been selected and they are already practising for next term’s events.
