We are planning a busy August in the library.

Some library related dates to keep in your diary are: August 6 from 1.30 - 3 we are fortunate to have Coromandel author Des Hunt coming into school. Des specilises in writing for New Zealand children, boys in particular. He was a recent finalist in the New Zealand Post Book Awards. Please feel free to come into school and meet him. 

13th - 15th August is also "Book Fair" time. Books will be on display in the library from Wednesday to Friday. We will have assorted competitions happening all week and displays of childrens related work in the office foyer. Friday the 15th will be a big day as we are asking all children and adults to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. So if you are coming into school for assembly do not be too shy to come dressed up, and while you are here please drop into the library to peruse the books available.

2014-2016 School Charter

At its 31 March 2014 meeting, the Board of Trustees ratified the 2014-2016 Hikuai School Charter.  The Education Act requires every school to have a charter and also to submit the charter to the Ministry of Education.  The Charter is a key planning document that sets out the school's objectives and targets for the year.  Our 2014 goals around increasing the number of students achieving 'at' or 'above' National Standards in reading are set out in this year's Charter.  I encourage you to read it.
