This term, students will be learning about clothing and how our identity is expressed through what we wear. As such, we would like to invite students to wear mufti next Tuesday 4th of August.
The purpose of wearing mufti is for students to express their identity. Over the weekend please have a conversation with your child and help them choose clothing that expresses their identity and is appropriate for school.
This could include (but is not limited to) sports wear, uniforms from groups they belong to, religious or cultural clothing, jewellery/henna/moko or simply clothing that they enjoy wearing. We will be meeting as a team to share with one another and to discuss how these items express our identity.
What: Mufti Day
When: Tuesday 4th August
Who: Whanake Students
Why: To share what we like to wear and how it reflects our identity.
In addition to the Mufti day, if you or any family members have any traditional, religious or cultural clothing that you would be willing to share with us, please let your class teacher know.
Kind Regards, Whanake Team.

Reporting to Parents
Conifer Grove School is committed to building a learning partnership with our community. You as the first teacher in your child’s life have a wealth of rich information which we value. Recent events have also meant that parents have been involved in distance learning in many forms. We feel that this is a great opportunity to collaboratively develop a report that is co-constructed with the parents, children and the teacher. This report will be based on what you, your child and the teacher noticed and to develop their next goals for 2020. As a result, we would like to consult our community.
Please take the time to fill out this brief survey to help us plan for reporting.
