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 320 students by the end of the year. 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.

THANK YOU
A big thank you to Natasha and Robert Harvey for organising, cutting out and shaping sets of stilts for each class. Once the stilts have been painted by the classes, they will be ready for action!

MATHS GROUP CAKE STALL

Thank you to all the people who helped to make our Bake Sale so successful in the last week of Term 2.
The Senior Maths group of Sophie, O’Hara, Harrison, Reon and Lewis were delighted to organise the bake sale as part of their maths learning. The aim was to raise funds to help Caroline for when she goes to Auckland hospital for a bone marrow transplant.
We were very surprised that we sold out by 1pm on the day! Our
favourite things on the day were making the food, eating the leftover mixture and having the opportunity to help someone in our
school community. We also found giving out the change was very challenging as we were soooo busy serving many people!
On the day we donated $420.00 - we were very proud of our achievement.
We wish Caroline and her family all the best.

GRANDPARENTS’ DAY & CULTURAL ASSEMBLY
We finished the term on a high note with Grandparents’ Day and our Cultural Assembly, even though it wasn’t really barbeque weather. It was great to see so many grandparents at school, sharing the day with their grandchildren. Having our cultural assembly gave us the opportunity to show grandparents the amazing talented students we have at East Taieri.

WELCOME
We welcome Ross Ballantyne who has been appointed as our new caretaker. Being a parent of children at East Taieri, Ross is familiar with the school and is very enthusiastic about plans he has for future development of the grounds. We look forward to working with Ross and hope that he enjoys his new role.

Welcome back to Vicki Thorburn who started our New Entrant class in Room 13 last year and is to do so again this year as our numbers grow. Welcome also to Philippa Wilson who will be working in the Senior School as a Teacher Aide for the remainder of the year.
