Newsletter Monday 14 December 2020 - final newsletter for the year!

He mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa - warm greetings to all.

What a crazy year it has been! Here are some final messages for the end of year before we leave your inbox in peace until next year...

Closing email accounts for our leavers

We will close all our leavers' email accounts on Friday this week. Please remind your child to save any work they wish to keep, as after Friday they won't be able to access it anymore via their Ridgway School account.

Seesaw Accounts

Next year, we are not using Seesaw for reporting. If you would like to save your child's journal and have access to their work in the future, you will need to download their journal. You can find instructions on how to do that here. The school will not have access to the journal so you do need to download it if you wish to access the work again.

Incredible Years Parenting Course

This 14 week course is for whanau with children 3-8 years old. It is designed to develop positive family relationships and empower parents to make changes and to manage difficult behaviour.

2021 dates

The dates for our teacher only days are: 1st April (the Thursday before the Easter break), Friday 4th and Tuesday 8th June (before and after Queens Birthday weekend), Friday 13th August and 26th October (the Tuesday after Labour Day).

2021 Stationery Lists

You can find our stationery lists for next year here. As always, do use up any books that haven't been finished first!

Vehicles in School Grounds

Naylor Love will be onsite from the 15 December preparing for building work to start next year. Please note that over December and January they'll be using the main gate for vehicle access, so take care and look left, then right, then left again if you are entering the school grounds.

Wishing you all a restful break and a relaxing summer!
