eNews Week 10


End of term message…

We are now at the end of a very busy and successful term. Learners have been settled and teachers have been focussed on ensuring that students are happy and engaged in their learning.  This term teachers and learners have been engaged in several amazing authentic learning experiences across the teams where learners have been able to make learning connections to the world in an authentic context e.g  Zoo, Camp, Jnr. Breakfast, Science Roadshow, Totora Park and the museum to mention just a few.

To our parents and whānau, it is wonderful to see you in our school and thank you for taking part in the many events and opportunities we offer here at Alfriston School. The learners love seeing their parents/whānau involved and this helps to strengthen our positive home/school partnership.

Today we say farewell to Mrs Sarah Locket who is leaving Alfriston and moving to Christchurch so she can be closer to her family and friends.  Mrs Lockett has been an integral part of our school culture,  teaching as both a classroom teacher and most recently a specialist teacher in Dance, Drama and Music.  The Learners love attending these sessions with her.  We wish Sarah the absolute best! 

To all whānau, have a safe and happy holiday break, stay safe and we look forward to another busy and exciting term 2.
