News Flash : COLFERENCE FOR SCHOOLS IN THE LYNFIELD SCHOOLS CLUSTER
On Wednesday 8th March, all of the 300 teachers from this cluster of eight schools will be taking part in a learning conference (which we have named as a Colference) and will include internationally recognised educator, Helen Timperley. So that this meeting can take place, school will be closing at 1.00pm on this day. Please note the date for this shortened day – Wednesday 8th March. All children will need to be collected from school at 1.00pm
The children and staff, together with the Board of Trustees and Parent-Teacher Association, welcome you to Blockhouse Bay Primary School.
Our children enjoy many diverse opportunities to learn supported by our community. We encourage you to participate in the numerous opportunities to take part in the life of the school. Such opportunities include special school occasions, fundraising, parent interviews, library assistance, help with school field trips and within the classrooms. Participation in activities such as these will enable you to become familiar with the school and its community, and to experience the vitality of the school as a learning place.
One cannot separate the home and the school learning environment, as the two combine to support a child to learn and make a happy, well adjusted student. The teacher gives professional assistance, encouragement and advice and has a major role in the student's development. The school has a part to play in the growing up process of your child, but this is done in tandem with the home.
