A message from our principal
Tēnā koutou katoa, I can't believe it's nearly the end of term, the time has flown by so quickly. Welcome to all the students and families starting in Room 4, which opened with Maya Ishida on Monday with a very smooth start for this group of children beginning their journeys at school. THANK YOU! What a fantastic PTA Quiz Night on Saturday. Super Heroes from all walks of life were well represented in typically creative style, including our greener than green Quiz Master, the Hulk. Thank you to our enthusiastic and hardworking PTA team and school staff who helped to make this annual event such a success. The generosity of local businesses and the wider community, who supported the event was fantastic. It was great to see such a fantastic turnout, on a very chilly evening, for our mid-year conferences on Tuesday, when the teachers and children shared successes and next learning steps. I would like to acknowledge and thank our outstanding staff for all of their hard work in preparation for these and indeed for facilitating progress for each child through the first half of this year. Thank you to Anthea, School Librarian, who has done a fabulous job of organising Book Fair Week. We appreciated all the support from our families who visited during this week and if you haven’t had a chance to visit yet, the Book Fair remains open before and after school until next Monday morning. We look forward to the book Character Parade and Grandparents morning tomorrow! Parents and Grandparents are welcome to come along and enjoy the fun. The Parade will be held on the courts at 9:15 am and then grandparents will visit classes with their grandchildren to share and read stories followed by morning tea. Next Friday morning we are celebrating Matariki with our Dawn Ceremony, please come and join us.As this is a whanau event, all children must be accompanied by an adult. Please gather from 7.15am on the bottom field, with a prompt start at 7.30am. If it's wet we will use the school hall for the ceremony. Our PTA is providing hot milo, a sausage sizzle and fruit to keep us all warm and going for the day ahead. This is complimentary. To support our sustainable efforts as an Enviro School, we will not be providing disposable cups so please bring your own BYO cup or mug if you would like a hot drink. Looking forward to seeing you for this celebration. If you are available to help at all during the morning, we would greatly appreciate this.

PTA Quiz Night
Wow! What a fantastic night we had last Saturday! The Quiz Night at the RSA was a huge success thanks to you and our generous sponsors and local businesses. The event raised in the region of $9,500.00! This is an outstanding result for our school and means that we will be able to replace the shade sail over the bleachers, by the swimming pool which has been our fundraising focus for the last year. A few public 'Thank you's' if we may: For those of you who came along, I am sure you will agree that Ed Hides did a fabulous job as our "Hulk MC" so a massive thank you Ed - your questions were an excellent combo of tricky and hilarious. Our fabulous local businesses were a massive support of our event, some sponsored tables and some donated auction items or prizes. A full list of our sponsors and generous local business is featured below - please support these guys if you are in need of a service that they provide. Thanks also to our volunteers on the night, to Mrs Matthee and Mrs Helwes for marking our quiz sheets, to Mrs Wakely for helping with the silent auction and our PTA volunteers who worked tirelessly to bring you this event. And finally thank you to you - our amazing school community, many of you said you had a fab night, thank you for coming and supporting the PTA in our fundraising, you looked incredible! We will leave you with a few pics of the night! See you at the Matariki Breakfast next week! List of sponsors and generous local businesses: Tech Elect Serv Limited

School Council Corner
This term the School Council have been involved in a variety of activities within the school. They have taken the initiative to share their experiences from Future Leader's Day and organised activities for other children interested in being a leader. They have continued with our fundraising drive as global citizens to support our World vision sponsored child, Monica. Thank you for your kind donations and assistance with this. Your contributions raised $463.40 for her family and their village in rural India. Our Councillors are great ambassadors for our school when we have visitors. They demonstrated manaakitanga during our parent information night; when we hosted the Science in a Van Team, and during our Pink Shirt day collection. Look out for them at the Book Character parade/Grandparents Day and during our Matariki Ceremony. They are also helping with our Achiever's Assembly at the end of the term helping to decide the content that goes within our assembly to recognise all our achievers. They are a terrific bunch to work with and show great initiative and creativity. This video was made last year, by our 2020 school council.
Walking School Bus
The walking school bus at the Titirangi library has had a big boost since our promotion last term with the WSB now running every morning. There is some interest in setting up the walking school bus for the afternoons. This would involve a parent 'driver' meeting children at school and then walking to the Titirangi community library. We do have an interested parent, but would need more than one driver. If you are interested in being an afternoon driver please contact our Walking School Bus Coordinator - Anna - email@example.com If you have any further queries regarding the WSB, please contact me Lisas@titirangi.school.nz Lisa Sparey Travelwise Leader
