Waltham Primary School
‘Te Kura o Tūpuni’
Welcome to Term 4 .
We hope everyone had a great long weekend.
Term 4 is a shorter term and a busy one! We have a number of school trips and activities planned.
We started in Week 1 with a very successful senior camp (AKO) to Wainui Camp. The AKO students were amazing and we had a fantastic 3 days climbing high ropes, orienteering, kayaking, speeding down the flying Fox and many other activities. Miss Wright outdid herself with an amazing Escape Room activity on the first night. A huge thank you to all the staff who helped make this camp happen.
We had our Year 5 trip to Adrenalin Forest yesterday which by all accounts was also very successful.
We have started practicing Athletics. The children are developing their running, jumping and throwing skills and are looking forward to showing off their learning at the upcoming Athletics Days.
This week it is the turn of our Junior Students to have an outdoor education experience and they are all heading to Willowbank.
We are all looking forward to the rest of Term 4 - it is certainly shaping up to be a great one.
Please remember if your contact details have changed in recent weeks please text your name and updated details to the school office asap.
