Check out Nate's plants!! He found a pansy in his Little Garden and is lucky enough to have some other plants too! I hope you all had great fun with this little project over the holidays, keep the photos coming - it is great to see the progress!

Today has been a great start to the new term. We had 3 lovely ladies join Room 5 today! Welcome to Sharon, Alaska and Willow - it is great to have you in our class and we hope you had a great first day.

Don't forget that this term school issue sun hats are compulsory. Students not wearing hats will be restricted to certain shaded areas within the school. Hats can be purchased from the office or uniform room.

Hope you are all enjoying your holidays - at least we have seen a little bit of sunshine so far!
Fingers crossed by now , your Little Gardens have sprouted! I know ours at home have started too, which is very exciting! Don't forget to send in some pics to me so we can see how each others gardens are going! Here is a cool collage that Sebs mum sent in of his awesome garden progress!
Can't wait to hear how it is after the holidays.!

Reminders for Term 4

Hi all, last day of term today so just a few notices before we go into holiday mode.


  • First day back is the 16th of October - Please note , there is an early finish at 1pm for Professional Development.
  • Photo orders close on the 18th October.
  • School hats are compulsory in Term 4 - these can be purchased from the school office.

I have also sent home a letter today about our Little Garden project. Each student will receive a Little Garden pot to plant and grow over the holidays. It would be nice if they could look after it themselves to learn about what a plant needs as we will be looking at this in term 4. If you like you can also email in pictures of your plants growing over the holidays - or get children to draw a picture of the seedling once it sprouts. My email is Hayley.Williams@Stanleyave.school.nz.


Enjoy the holidays , have fun and stay safe.
