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.

HEALTHY BREAKFAST
On the last morning of Term 1 (Thursday 2nd April) the whole school will join together in a shared breakfast as a culmination of our Inquiry into ‘Healthy Living’. As part of this event we will be having a pyjama day and everyone is welcome to come to school in their pyjamas.
We have been lucky enough to secure donations of bread and weetbix (we also have gluten free weetbix and bread available). The children will need to supply their own (named) bowl,
plate and spoon and they are welcome to bring their own cereal if they would like.
The breakfast will take place between 8:00am – 9:00am and the children are welcome to come and share breakfast during that hour. Sorry, breakfast will be available only for school

CONCERNS REGARDING THE TIME SOME CHILDREN ARRIVE AT SCHOOL
We have had children arriving at school too early – one at 7.30am last week. Supervision in the library does not start until 8am – and that is through prior arrangement between parents and school. Children are not permitted into classrooms until 8.30am.

COIN TRAIL
The Student Council have planned a coin trail for Friday to raise funds for the victims of the cyclone in Vanuatu. Last week Janna Begley, one of our new parents, talked to the school about the devastation in Vanuatu and how it has affected the school where she was recently teaching. We have decided to send the proceeds of the coin trail directly to her school. Some children have been doing jobs at home to make a real effort to raise money – well done!

TIROHANGA DAY
A reminder that today is the whole school trip to Tirohanga. The children need to come to school in suitable mufti and wearing sensible footware. They will also need sunhats, packed lunch, water bottle and warm clothing in case the weather cools down.
