Newsletter - Term 1, Week 1, 2023
Welcome to the 2023 school year. It was lovely to see the excited faces pouring in the gate on Tuesday morning.
A special welcome to all whānau (families) who are new to Hokowhitu School - we sincerely hope that you will enjoy being part of our school whānau. Please ask if there is anything unclear to you - we will be very happy to help and/or explain further.
Three quick reminders
a school regulation sunhat is required for outdoors in Term 1. NO HAT, NO PLAY. Hats are available at the school office for $12.00
the sun is fierce at this time of the year. Please ensure sunscreen is applied before coming to school in the morning and pack sunscreen for your child to reapply at break times.
our swimming pool is solar heated and covered at night. Swimming is part of the school curriculum - we expect everyone to take part. Children are to bring their togs/towel/rash top every day. Please email your child’s whānau teacher if they are unable to swim for medical reasons. Teachers will not take the tamariki swimming on days that are unsuitable and no child is ever made to stay in the pool after getting cold.
