Library News


End of year book amnesty. 

As the school year draws to a close the library's thoughts turn towards the annual audit. The library will be closed for withdrawls at the end of Week 8. Please ensure all library books are returned as soon as possible so we can complete our audit for 2014.

The school is holding an amnesty on any library books or readers, so if you happen to look under the sofa and find a small treasure trove of books, please just send them back to school. No-one will give you a hard time or look down their nose at you because books may be weeks, months or years overdue! We would just appreciate getting them back.

Thank you for your support in this matter, remember that the more books and readers we have at school, the better we can teach your child.

2014-2016 School Charter

At its 31 March 2014 meeting, the Board of Trustees ratified the 2014-2016 Hikuai School Charter.  The Education Act requires every school to have a charter and also to submit the charter to the Ministry of Education.  The Charter is a key planning document that sets out the school's objectives and targets for the year.  Our 2014 goals around increasing the number of students achieving 'at' or 'above' National Standards in reading are set out in this year's Charter.  I encourage you to read it. 

Regards,

Mark Milmine
Chairman, Board of Trustees
