East Taieri School is situated in a semi rural area on the outskirts of Mosgiel, Dunedin. The school is set among park like surroundings, creating a superb working and learning environment. We are a decile 9 contributing primary school, with a roll of approximately 300 students. A strength of the school is its ‘family atmosphere’ and community involvement. There is a strong tradition of high expectations and values, which are incorporated into the school culture. Syndicate and school wide activities are consciously planned to ensure that this is maintained. We are very fortunate to have children who are receptive to learning because their parents value education and fully support the staff. We believe in providing for enrichment needs primarily in the classroom, but in addition we run withdrawal extension groups focusing on different curriculum areas. Programmes are put in place for students identified as requiring extra support in certain areas. The children are well cared for and they, along with their families and a wonderfully hard working and committed staff, all contribute to our happy and positive school environment. Our staff are dedicated to maintaining and enhancing our family environment.

DISCOVERY TIME
We have started Discovery Time again on a Friday between playtime and lunchtime for the Year 3 to 6 children (11:20-12:30). Discovery Time is a fantastic opportunity to develop the wonderful child leaders we have at East Taieri School and help students to develop the competencies to become lifelong learners and competent citizens. If you are available to come along, even once, and take a small group for an activity it would be hugely appreciated. Examples of activities you might like to take are cooking, art, craft, woodwork, sports skills, board game sessions, photography……….anything you like! There can be remuneration of costs of materials if necessary. Grandparents are also very welcome to come along as well. If you are able to help on a Friday between 11:20am and 12:40pm, please contact Garth Powell - garth@east-taieri.school.nz or Janine Clague - janine@easttaieri.school.nz

ATTENTION KNITTERS!
Many thanks to the knitters who have already made Peggy Squares. They are being joined together to make blankets for babies and children, and will be given to the Dunedin Women’s Refuge.
We would love to have more squares! The more even in size they are, the easier it is to construct the blankets. We have decided on a size of 14cm square. For most knitters, that is 30 stitches cast on, and the number of stocking stitch rows you need to make
it a square. Double knit wool is preferred please.
Bring any questions and your finished squares to Miss Holgate in Room 5. She also has some examples of squares to look at if you are unsure.

MATHS EVENING
On Wednesday 12 August we have our maths evening for parents and children. The evening goes from 5:30-6:30 and begins in the Owhiro Centre where we will present an explanation of how the maths evening will operate. Each syndicate will have stations run by ‘expert’ children. These experts will help your children to explain what strategies they are using or learning in class, as well as the knowledge required at each stage.
This night will be very informative and we encourage all parents to come along with their children.
