Teacher Only Days in Term 4 2019

Recently the Ministry of Education awarded all schools in New Zealand 8 Teacher Only Days that are to be used over a three year period. 
For 2019 Anderson's Bay School will be using two of these days in Term Four this year.  In an attempt to make this a little more manageable for families, and also to balance our many commitments in Term Four, we will be holding these Teacher Only Days either side of Labour Weekend.  This will mean that Anderson's Bay School is closed for instruction on Friday 25th October and Tuesday 29th October
The school will also be closed for the statutory holiday on Monday 28th October. 
Magic Kids Club will be running a programme at the school on the 25th and 29th October.  Please contact them directly to make a booking -

Anderson's Bay School Carpark

Over time we have noticed some "near miss" situations with vehicles, children and adults entering and leaving the Anderson's Bay School Staff car park and bottom car park adjacent to the Anderson's Bay Kindergarten. This carpark is a staff parking area only.  Can we please remind you that the car park, or the car park entry, is not a drop off area.

Not only will this ensure improved Health and Safety practices, but it will also free up street-side parking spaces, with staff cars parked off the street.  As a school we are very aware of the limited parking and drop off areas along Jeffery Street.  Below is a diagram of alternative parking options around our school (provided they are free of roadworks).  The Board of Trustees do appreciate the understanding and commitment of our families to create the safest environment possible.

 My name is Ashlee Maxwell and I am a contemporary vocalist who teaches voice lessons. I specialize in working with pop, rock and singer / songwriter material but  have also had experience with musical theatre. I recently completed my Level 1 TOSCA certification in voice pedagogy and voice science for singing through The Voice Lab. I’m looking to do itinerant private or group lessons for schools in 2020 between 7-14 years of age. I was also looking at doing some trail lessons in the upcoming Christmas holidays.
