AN IMPRESSIVE START – EXCELLENT PIPPS NEWS Great News! Staff are very pleased with the excellent start that children have made to the school year. Teachers have commented positively on the great attitudes of children in class and very good lunch time behaviour ... so good that all 24 classes and 590 students started the term with a 100% Consequence Free week as part of the school’s Pupils in Positive Playgrounds (PIPPS) programme. That’s something to celebrate! NEWSFEB19/14 Newslet Name…………………………… SCHOOL VISION STATEMENT Our Vision Statement underpins teaching and learning at Hill, and is: “At Pukekohe Hill we are a community of lifelong learners committed to achieving our best and making a difference”. HILL SCHOOL COMMUNITY PICNIC Make this a family date! Hill School’s popular community picnic is next week on Tuesday, 25 February from 6.00 pm. Come along with your family and enjoy a relaxed and enjoyable celebration of our community. Bring along your rugs, deck chairs and a picnic dinner – the PTA will also have a sausage sizzle. Last year over 1,000 people came. Don’t miss out in 2014! Featured above is a visual representation of our Vision Statement and an explanation. Heart symbol: Represents our virtues and partnership with Maori. Kohekohe leaves: Represents the skills for lifelong learners and the kohekohe tree which is part of our Pukekohe name. Hill logo: Part of our identity and represents striving to the top to do our best. Sun and its Rays: Represents the many cultures of our students. Market Gardens: Represents Pukekohe Hill and how we can make a difference as we move towards the future and recognise the past. It also reflects our connection as an Enviro and Health promoting school BOARD MEETING NEXT WEDNESDAY Your Board of Trustees has its first meeting for 2014 next Wednesday, 26 February at 7 pm in the staffroom. The agenda includes discussion and approval of the school’s 2014-2016 Charter and Strategic Plan, Classroom highlight reports and a wide range of other agenda items. Meetings are open to the public and you are welcome to come along. UNIFORMS AT HILL Lots of second hand uniform clothing for sale at the office at great prices, and a new supply of skorts for girls has arrived.

CHAPLAIN WELCOMED At last weeks’ school assembly we introduced Chaplain Tani. Our chaplain has a role in supporting children and providing a “listening ear” when they have concerns and worries. Children can ask to see the chaplain, and parents can also request this support for students by contacting the Principal or an Assistant Principal. BREAKFAST FOR ALL! At Hill we work with Project Energise staff to promote student activity and healthy eating. This term the healthy “nuggets” focus is on breakfast. “Eating breakfast every day boosts your energy levels and provides your body and brain with fuel to keep you going throughout the day” FANTASTIC SUPPORT FOR JUNIOR INFORMATION EVENING Congratulations! The support of families for the Junior Information Evening last week was fantastic! Mrs Bates reports that almost 90% of children had parents come along, and that most other families met their child’s teacher yesterday after school! Thanks so much to you all for supporting this way of building a learning partnership to meet our Vision Statement, and thanks also to our junior teaching team for their commitment.
