<ul><li><p>Newsletter 26 March 2015</p><p>Please check out our new website www.manurewaeast.school.nz </p><p>MANUREWA EAST SCHOOL 1</p><p>Reporting to Parents </p><p>The way we report to you, our parents and whanau will change slightly from this year onwards. </p><p> This change in reporting is dictated by the Ministry of </p><p>Education, and is dependent on when your child first started their schooling life. We are required to report on your child progress towards the National Standards, </p><p>and also their achievement agains the National Standards at </p><p>the end of a given years education. The graphs below </p><p>explain when to expect to receive a written formal report </p><p>from your childs teachers. Please note: if you have more </p><p>than one child at our school, they many not all receive a report at </p><p>the same time in the year... </p><p>MANUREWA EAST SCHOOL </p><p>It was really pleasing to see how many parents and whanau took the opportunity to observe the classrooms in action last Tuesday on our Open Day. It was great to see parents having a shared lunch under the trees and on the decks with their children. </p><p>This Term we have had our Meet the Teacher informal evening on 24th of February and then the Open Day. </p><p>We look forward to seeing you for the Three Way Conferences where students, teachers and parents set learning goals for the year. From now until then it would be great to discuss with your child/ren questions such as; </p><p>1. How do you think you are doing at school? 2. What are the things you are good at and like doing? 3. What are things that you may not be good at and need help with? 4. How can your teacher help you with things you are good at? 5. How can your teacher help you with things you need help with? 6. How can I as your parent help you with things you are good at? 7. How can I as your parent help you with things you may not be </p><p>good at? </p><p>It is better to ask these specific questions rather than just ask your child "what goals have you got?" Some of your children may discuss with you about areas other than Maths, Reading and Writing and may wish to discuss with you areas of the curriculum which include managing themselves, and getting on better with others in the school. By having these discussions with your child before arriving at the Three Way Conferences, everyone attending will have a better idea on actual learning goals that are based on what your child really needs as a focus for their learning. </p><p>By the time students leave us in Year 6 we want them to be confident, inquisitive, articulate problem solvers, who can use a varity of communication tools to make sense of their world</p><p>Upcoming dates: </p><p> Thursday 2 April 3pm Term One Ends Friday 3 April Good Friday Monday 20th April 9am Term Two Begins Monday 27th April ANZAC Day</p></li><li><p>Newsletter 26 March 2015</p><p>MANUREWA EAST SCHOOL 2</p><p>Fully funded boarding school education for boys (criteria apply)</p><p>Apply now for a 2016 scholarship Based in Auckland, Dilworth is a century old, Christian-based school supported by a substantial trust.

Thank you for your support!! </p><p>The Book of Everything </p><p>On Wednesday March 18th, the Year 6 students went to watch the play: The Book of Everything. This was only made possible by the generosity of St Cuthberts. They kindly paid for our 59 children to experience a very emoGonal play. Thank you to St Cuthberts for allowing the Year 6 students to a\end a once in a lifeGme event. </p><p>I loved it because it was a beauGful, lovely story that was also scary and terrible at the same Gme. It was amazing that I could feel sad and happy in my heart at the same Gme. - Dylan, A3 </p><p>My favourite bit was when we threw the frogs on the stage. My favourite character was the daughter because she ended up being kind to the brother. I really loved the play, it was oh so amazing! I also loved how the characters were so confident. - IG, E1 </p><p>http://www.dilwortmailto:applications@dilworth.school.nzhttp://www.dilwortmailto:applications@dilworth.school.nz</p></li></ul>
