Kia ora koutou katoa
Naumai, haere mai ki te Kura Tuatahi – Akonga Aka Mariko. Welcome to the VLN Primary School
Our goal is to:
Connect Schools for Enhanced Learning Outcomes
Welcome back to the new school year! You will by now be back in the school routines and wondering where the summer break went. We have been super busy too, so this is a bumper newsletter to start the year.
Please take the time to look through the range of learning opportunities being provided through the VLN Primary School network and support your children to participate. These programmes are offered by teachers from our schools for the benefit of all our New Zealand children, wherever they are in the country. This newsletter contains enrolment information, if you have not already enrolled your children yet.
There is lots that is new to us this year: We are sporting a fresh new logo, thanks to the support of Hail; we welcome our new executive officer Helen who will help us with all the non-teaching admin; and we were welcomed into Moanataiari School who will be hosting us through our current MoE contract. Special thanks to Matapu School who have provided this support since the VLN Primary first started partnering with the MoE back in 2010. We have grown so much since then! We really need this support of our schools to enable us to do what we do, but are looking forward to the opportunities CoOLs may bring to enable us to be self managing in our operations.
Finally please note the date for our AGM coming up in April. We welcome new trustees to the governance group. We particularly welcome parents and people from the wider community. If you know someone who would fill the role, please shoulder tap them and share this information with them.
