Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
I was talking with a friend over the weekend and reminiscing about the coldest place that we could remember being. We both had several options. My memory of the coldest that I have been was at "Stonehenge" England, not the Maniototo farm (although I’ve been cold up there too).
Yesterday however was very close to that level of cold and the weather doesn’t look like mending any time soon.
Please remember that winter is the cough and cold season. Everybody is susceptible to catching a ‘bug’. Please remind your children to wash their hands thoroughly, that is wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds in warm water with soap and dry them for 20 seconds. They need to wash their hands at all key times—before eating, after using the toilet etc. If your child is unwell then please get them to stay at home, as we don’t want bugs to spread.
This week we are having our first round of school interviews. These interviews support the
written reports that went out last week. Please ensure that you make an appointment for an
interview as this is a great way to keep up with your child’s progress and the learning steps.
Have a great week
