Last week Anderson’s Bay entered a Year 6 Netball team, Andy Bay Vipers in the Otago Primary School Netball Tournament. It was coached and managed by Craig Soal. The team was made up of Year 5 & 6 students. They had a couple of good wins and some great netball played. They were all very competitive during the game and showed their fantastic sportsmanship throughout the tournament. Thanks also goes to Mr Smale for umpiring the games and Mr Ellis for being the water boy. Well done girls!
Congratulations to all our children who participated in Stars on Stage on Monday night. You were truly awesome! Special thank you to all those who helped make this a success.
If parents would like to order a DVD please put $20 into an envelope, write your child's name, room number and Stars on Stage and hand it into the school office. Orders will close on Thursday, 26 September 2019.
Over the past year Anderson's Bay School have been forging a relationship with a school in China, Xinjian Primary School in Zhengzhou, China. During 2018 and the beginning of 2019 some of our Tōtara had several online conferences and sharing experiences with students from Xinjian Primary School, using our learning in Mandarin and the Chinese students learning in English to share our stories (with a little bit of help from our Mandarin Learning Assistants to translate). On Monday 16th September we are really looking forward to welcoming a small group of students and teachers from Xinjian Primary School to visit us at Anderson's Bay School and experience what it is like to be in a New Zealand School and to share our teaching and learning practices with our Chinese teaching colleagues. This is an exciting next step in the continued relationship with our Sister School.
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.
Thursday 26 September
6:00 -7:00 pm.

The annual Grandparents or Significant Others day will be held at school on Thursday 24th October. This was scheduled for Friday 25th, but has been altered to accommodate the Teacher Only Day. Further details of this event will be communicated in future newsletters.
FILM AND DISCUSSION:Winner of seven international awards with incredible cinematography, NaturePlay – Take Childhood Back, explores the concept of education through play in nature (Udeskole). NaturePlay is an inspiring look at the Scandinavian method of udeskole, which is practised through forest kindergartens, after school clubs, nature-based play areas, adventure playgrounds and through increased break time at school.
Little Kiwis Nature Play in collaboration with Anderson's Bay School is honoured to host the NaturePlay film with its important message and thought-provoking insights.
Following the film, Celia Hogan, founder of Little Kiwis Nature Play will lead a discussion on the relevance of this film to New Zealand, challenging educational philosophies and policies and emphasising the importance of nature play on a child's holistic development.
