We have a few exciting events coming up early next term, including our 'Art Week' and Art Auction in week 2. Your child will opt into an art activity, ranging from henna artwork and painting to punga carving. A variety of community groups will perform as part of the week.
This is a great opportunity to celebrate the arts fostering creativity, which is an important part of a child’s education. As the great Albert Einstein said “Creativity is contagious, pass it on”. An Art exhibition of the work will be held on Friday 31 July to share with you the wonderful work created. As part of the exhibition, an auction of selected works, created by the Art Enhancement students this term, will take place. The funds raised though the auction will cover the cost of most activities during art week. We are very fortunate to have Ms Ella Kumar, Local Councillor, as our Auctioneer again this year.
Please come along and experience our exhibition, an invitation is attached.
Also coming up next term is our School EXPO and Open Day. This shows prospective families the many and varied opportunities that we have to offer at Mount Roskill Intermediate School. We appreciate the involvement of our wonderful students in this event, showcasing different curriculum and extra-curricular areas. The EXPO will be held on Wednesday 5th August at 9am and 7pm. If you would like to attend, or know of someone who may be interested, please see the attached information for more detail.
You will have received your child’s Report last week and met with your child’s teacher this week. We welcome your questions and appreciate any additional information that might be important for us to know. We want to work with you to ensure that your child makes the most progress possible with their learning.
Congratulations to our fabulous Orchestra, Band and Choir who performed recently as part of our Campus Concert. They did an outstanding job showcasing their talent and entertaining us. It was a wonderful evening. It is always a highlight of the year to see the great development of talent across the Campus.
Congratulations to Ian Busby Rm 7 and his badminton squad who will be representing Auckland in the U13 New Zealand national championship in Palmerston North in July.
Our School hangi and Campus Matariki celebrations were also very special events, both as learning opportunities and to share their talent. Thank you to the families who supported these events.
Finally, a child who is happy, feels safe and valued, will learn better than one who has a worry or concern. We encourage all students to let us know if they have a problem, so that we can work with them to resolve it. We will follow up on every bullying incident that is reported to us. We ask for your support in letting us know if your child has concerns that we are not aware of.
Have a safe holiday. Term 3 will commence on Monday 20th July.
