We would like to welcome Isabelle to Anderson's Bay School.
It is wonderful to have you joining us.
The New Zealand Educational Institute has called a paid union meeting for all teachers on Thursday 28th June, starting at 1:00 pm. It is expected that all teachers from our school attend in order to discuss NZEI claims and negotiations. Therefore, it is necessary for us to call on the support of our community and request that children be picked up from school at 12:30 pm. If you are unable to pick your child up at that time please send a written note to school and supervision can be provided until 3:00 pm. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Although the image below may seem like a very distant memory or something that couldn't possibly be on the horizon, given our recent weather, I am aware that these conditions could move into winter conditions very quickly in the not too distant future. On occasion, schools may have a late start or closure for inclement weather, this could be for snow, ice or, as we found out earlier this year, flooding. Although at times the conditions around Anderson's Bay may not reflect the road conditions for some of the other major roadways in Dunedin, decisions for late starts or closures are made as a "blanket decision" for all schools in the Dunedin area, taking into consideration the need for staff and families at schools to travel across the city. Decisions to have a late start or closure will be notified on Classic Hits 89.4 FM. As soon as we receive notification of a late start or closure an email will be sent to all families and a note will be put on the home page of our www.andybay.ac.nz school website, in addition to these two points of communication we will also send out a SKOOL LOOP SMS message.
Is your child shy? Do they feel intimidated by the idea of public speaking and performance? Do they sometimes find it difficult to make eye contact? Do they just need dedicated time per week to just be CRAZY?! Come and join the revolutionary self-confidence programme - Marrzipan! We run awesome classes at schools, which focus on key life skills and public speaking ability. We play fun engaging games and perform at the end of term once to parents and once to the school. All scripts are original, engaging, educational and HILARIOUS. You can sign your child up for a Trial Lesson via our website www.marrzipandrama.co.nz (we have contact numbers on there too, should you prefer to talk to a human!)
