Students identified as being Māori or as having Māori ancestry have been given an invitation to give to whānau - this can be parents, step-parents, grandparents, brothers or sisters. If your child did not get an invitation and you would like to come, please either email andreat@titirangi.school.nz or call the school office on 09 8178346. Some students were enrolled but have not had all of their ethnicities added to Hero - just let us know and will will amend this. To RSVP please also email andreat@titirangi.school.nz or let teachers know how many are coming in the family. If emailing, please include how many in the whānau will attend. The Kapa Haka group will be performing on the evening and parents of those students are invited along to watch.  Kapa Haka students will leave after the performance and the consultation process will follow this.

Easter Break Friday 29 March - Tuesday 2 April 2024

Easter Break Friday 29 March - Tuesday 2 April 2024

As Easter is outside of the school holidays this year. We wish to remind you that schools are closed on Tuesday 2nd April. As well as Good Friday (29th March) and Easter Monday (1st April) Tuesday 2nd April, is a school holiday (not a statutory holiday) meaning schools will not be open. The terms and holidays are usually set so that Easter occurs during the first term break and the Easter Tuesday school holiday goes unnoticed. However, in some years Easter falls much earlier than usual, such as this year. www.education.govt.nz/school/school-terms-and-holiday-dates *sKids will be open if they are able to secure sufficient bookings for the day, please book early. Onsite Number: 021 0644 681  Office – Manor: 021 247 8828  Email: titirangi@skids.co.nz

2024 Term Dates

2024 Term Dates

In 2024, Term 1 will start with two 'Whānau Days' on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd February. The first full day back in the classroom for all students will be Wednesday 7th February. This will give families a four day Waitangi Weekend - rather than starting Monday, having a holiday on Tuesday and then back to school Wednesday. For Year 2 - 6 students , whānau days will take place on Thursday 1st February and Friday 2nd February. We will set up interview times once 2024 classes are organised (at the end of this year) using our digital booking system. These are days when the teachers will be at school to meet with each family for 15-20 minutes to talk about learners - their interests, strengths, challenges etc. It will be an opportunity for caregivers to share with kaiako and to start building the relationship that we know is pivotal to student success - that of Whānau, Kaiako/Teacher and School. Each Year 1 teacher will have a session with the parents from their classroom to share who they are, and the beginning school information, expectations, classroom routines and plans for the year. This will take place on Thursday 1 February between 9 - 10 am. Later in the term, once the children have settled into 2024 classes, teachers will meet one on one with families. While parents are meeting with the teacher, students will be supervised either on the court or playground. The last day of school for 2024 is Wednesday 18 December.

2024 Back to School Stationery

2024 Back to School Stationery

Please read the information regarding 2024 student stationery requirements. We do recommend ordering stationery early to ensure delivery before school resumes. Over the last few years we have noticed deliveries can take weeks over January and February.  Each year we get quotes from different companies, so we can offer parents the best options available to us, while still ensuring the quality of the books are up to the robust use they are going to get in the classroom. This year we have tried hard to be mindful of the costs that families are having to meet. We have revised our lists several times to try to bring the cost down. Some items have been taken off the list and will be provided by the school. If you are struggling in any way, please get in touch so we can try to offer a solution. This year, we are again using stationery company Qizzle, a 100% New Zealand owned company. Please note while you are not required to purchase your child’s stationery through this site, our teachers do appreciate the children having the correct stationery. Some specific books are not available through other stationery stores. Books must have the correct size margins and lines, maths books have the correct quad grid, and have the required margins, and blank pages on alternative pages. Each of the year level lists have been loaded onto the Qizzle site with the quantities required for each item. The website is   www.schoolpacks.co.nz , please select Titirangi School from the dropdown list . Qizzle also offers a ‘checkbox’ so you can de-select items that you may already have from last year.  Please make use of exercise books that have plenty of pages left in them and other stationery items such as coloured pencils, pencil sharpeners & folders that can be reused. Payment is easy, Schoolpacks accept credit and debit cards, or you can choose to manage the payment with LayBuy  You can choose the delivery date to fit in with when you are home over the holiday. Delivery for online packs is free for all orders over $69, otherwise a freight charge of $6.95 is applied at checkout. The following are extra items required for the children across the various year levels. Note that these items are not available through the Qizzle site - but rather through the online school shop   Kindo If you already have any of these items from previous years, you can continue to use them in the coming year.
