QUOTE FOR THE WEEK
Dear Parents/ Caregivers
In continuing with Inquiry this term, ‘Our future is determined by our past’, we will also be visiting Moeraki Marae and the Moeraki boulders on Tuesday March 30 as two groups, the Senior Syndicate Years 4-8 from 9.20am until 2pm approx and Junior Syndicate from 11am and returning 2.30pm
Students are asked to wear PE uniform and bring/wear a school sweatshirt. They are also asked to bring a packed lunch and filled water bottle. Senior students will also need to bring morning tea. If required, students are also encouraged to bring any medications/ inhalers and hand them to teachers for safekeeping during the visits.
For the trip to go ahead, we require 20 parents in total for visiting the boulders using a 1-4 ratio for safety near water. All parents who are able to help will be needed from 11.30am - 1.30pm at Moeraki Boulders, meeting at the car park. Parents are welcome to accompany classes to the marae. Seniors will be visiting from 10-12pm and Junior Syndicate 12.30- 2pm. Please let your classroom teacher know if you are able to help.
We hope to transfer learning from the visit to preserving culture and taonga to the renovation of St Joseph’s school - ‘history in the making’.
