Kia ora whānau,
We hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
As Term one gets closer, and you are thinking of getting those school supplies, I thought I'd post regarding stationery in year three.
All pencils, erasers, whiteboard markers, glue sticks, felt tipped pens, and rulers will be collected in on day one and used as shared resources within the hub.
However, as the children in Tui are allowed their own pencil cases with personal stationery, so are our year threes in Pukeko.
Please note that if your child does choose to use their own stationery, it is in addition to the hub stationery we require as a hub, and it is their responsibility. At this age stationery often goes missing, which can be quite upsetting, so please do talk through the pros/cons of having their own things at school, and clearly label all items.
We urge children to leave their special 'Smiggle' stationery at home, and only use basic stationery at school should they so choose.
