Welcome back to all our students and families. If you are new to Patoka we welcome you on board and look forward to working with you throughout the year.
2014 promises to be an exciting year with a number of key events happening. There will be the normal cluster schools activities such as cross country, Pakowhai Top Town, Meeanee 7s. Add into this the various sports events that are organised, a whole school camp (watch this space) and a whole school production (in Term 3). Wow! we are going to be busy.
Our theme for this year is Kaitiaki. Already we have spent time talking to our children about how they are being guardians – of our school, of their learning, of our environment, of our community. This theme will be integrated into most of our learning throughout the year.
I would encourage you to keep an eye on the website. It is a useful source of information and provides an opportunity for our school to celebrate the successes and the great things that are going on. I look forward to catching up with many of you throughout the year. Please feel free to pop in and have a chat and view our great school. We are very proud of it!
