Every year our teaching team undertake two professional development, teacher only days immediately before the start of the school year. Along with a number of other schools we organise a speaker of significance to support our professional learning. For 2019 we intend to do the same, however the speaker is limited to being able to attend on Thursday 31 January. The logical start date following this speaker will Monday 4th February. This date, however is taking the start of our school year later than we had hoped and we want to take advantage of the learning time this provides for our children. Therefore, Anderson's Bay School will be doing something a little different next year.
Our start date for the 2019 school year will be Monday, 28th January, For the first time in many, many years we will take a teacher only day during term time on the Thursday 31st January, meaning school will be closed for that day. This is not our normal practice, as we genuinely do not want to inconvenience our families and normally will hold such days during term breaks, however, the calibre of the combined schools professional development opportunity is very important for our staff.
We will continue to share this information, as we want our families to be completely well informed of this day, allowing you to make arrangements for your children. We have also arranged for Magic After School care to be running a "holiday style" programme on Thursday 31st January to assist our families with this day. This opportunity will be available for any of our Anderson's Bay School children.
The Term Dates for 2019 are as follows:
28th January to 12 April 2019
29 April to 5 July 2019
22 July to 27 September 2019
14 October to 13 December 2019

Below is our class structure for 2019, which includes a Year 4 and 5 class in the Tōtara Team, accommodating our significantly large group of Year 4 students across both teams. This is similar to previous years when some Year 2 students have been in the Kowhai Team. The Year 4 students in the Year 4 and 5 mix class will be a part of the Tōtara Team, with some times through the school year where they will take part in Kowhai Team activities e.g. Activity Week.

For the first time in several years, the annual Orange Parade returned to George St on Friday, 23 November 2018 to recognise the hundreds of children who control pedestrian crossings outside their schools throughout the year.
Children from 29 schools, between Balclutha and Waikouaiti, paraded through the Dunedin CBD in high-visibility vests before gathering in the Octagon where they were officially thanked by Dunedin city councillor Jim O’Malley.
"I really admire you. You represent everything that’s good about this city and
all the towns that you come from. You’re reliable, you turn up every day to do your job,
no matter what the weather is. Other people depend on you for their safety."
Below are some photos taken during the Parade and up at Moana Pool where the children got to spend time after the parade.
