School BBQ and Picnic - 3rd Feb (click pic)
Come and join us - an open invitiation to the whole community!
We want to actively open this up and invite the whole Hikuai community and Hikuai School community. That means anyone who has a connection to Hikuai School or anyone who would just like to come and see our awesome country school has an open invitation to come and we would encourage you to do just that. We want to see you! We believe that it’s important that we acknowledge that even though some of our community no longer have children here at Hikuai you are still very much important to our school and community. Our relationships are what makes us strong so please, come and reconnect with our wonderful school, its children and staff.
The evening will be a casual affair and will be a great chance to meet Mr Joseph Stodart, our new Room 4 teacher. You can bring a packed dinner/picnic if you like or the school BBQ will be running if you want to cook your own meal such as sausages etc.
· Eating and sharing will be from 5:30 – 6: 15pm.
· At 6:15pm each teacher will go to their respective classrooms and talk to you about the term and year ahead for about 20 minutes during which time will have the opportunity to ask questions.
· After the ‘meet the teacher time’ you might like stay and eat and share or make your way home as you see fit.
· If the weather happens to be against us on that day please check the school website for a cancellation. We will do ring round/email as well. WE VERY MUCH LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL THERE!

Behaviour Management System 2015 (click)
Please read on...
Please find attached the 2015 Hikuai School Behaviour Management Document. As mentioned in the Back to School newsletter this is not a change of Behaviour Management policy but rather illustrates the form that policy takes within the school yard at Hikuai School.
The emphasis will always be on the positive, the good and the kind at Hikuai School and as you read on you will see the TOTARA STUDENT takes on a new and pivotal dimension in this regard. At the same time however, there must be clear guidelines for staff, students and parents if a child chooses not to adhere to or deviates from the behaviour expectations of a student at Hikuai and this document conveys the consequences and the actions taken if this is indeed the case.
Please take the time to read through the document and talk about it with your children. Staff will be working through the expectations and consequences at school with the students as well.
Like all good systems and procedures they will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure they are best serving the mission and vision of the school.
