The following parent representatives have been appointed to the new Anderson's Bay School Board of Trustees:
The new Staff Representative is: Lizzie Potter
In March this year we introduced School Docs to our community as the portal for reviewing and viewing our policies and procedures. At that time we also sent home a separate email to our existing families with the login details. These details remain active, however, we will also send home a further email to you, following this newsletter, with School Docs login. Even though the Term 2 reviews are for the Board of Trustees and Staff to undertake, and not in this instance for parents, please store the login details carefully.
The school works on a subscription basis with SchoolDocs to maintain, update, and review our policies. SchoolDocs provides us with a comprehensive core set of policies which have been well researched and follow the Ministry of Education National Administration Guidelines. The policies and procedures are tailored to our school, and the school supplies specific information such as our charter, and procedures for behaviour management, reporting to parents, etc.
Parent/Teacher interviews (for all children) will be held on Thursday, 4 July 2019. Bookings have now opened.
Please go to http://www.schoolinterviews.co.nz to book a time. The code for our school is 5ndte.
We are proud of our children and especially how tidy and smart they look in the Anderson’s Bay School uniform. It is an expectation that children will wear the correct uniform at school.
Black shorts/skort, black school track pants, blue school polo-shirt, zip fleece blue-black jacket, microfleece black top; school sun-hats terms 1 and 4.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.
Your child may be given a reminder about their uniform if they are seen wearing non-uniform clothing.

Having an up-to-date list of pre-school children is very helpful in determining class sizes and planning throughout a given year.
