Winter tournament - we need you!

Winter Tournament is on the first Tuesday morning of Term 3 at Hagley Park, (23rd July).

Winter Tournament is a series of quick round-robin games against other teams in our zone. It serves as a qualifier for the Canterbury Winter Tournament. Our travelling weekly winter sport teams will compete in this tournament.

An adult is needed to manage each team and to referee their games. Many of our wonderful winter sport coaches are volunteering their time to be with their team for the tournament. We are able to enter more teams than what we can enter in winter sport and so would like to reorganise some of the teams to maximise the game time for each child. This requires more adult help.

We currently need managers for the following:

Hockey: 1 x year 5/6 and 2 x 7/8
Football: 2 x year 5/6
Netball: 1 x year 5/6 and 1 x 7/8

If you are able to help out, please email Jenny on

You may catch the bus with us or meet us at Hagley Park. You would be needed between 9 and 12:30.

Learning conferences next week

We have learning conferences in week 7 on Tuesday 11th June and Thursday 13th June. Note that school will finish at the earlier time of 2pm on both days to allow for Learning Conferences to take place. These conferences are an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s home group teacher to discuss your child’s current achievement and their next steps for learning. The conferences will be 15 minutes in duration for Year 1-6.

If you would like your child to stay at school between 2 pm and 3 pm on one or both of those days please fill in this google survey so we can plan ahead.

To book, please go to and use the code yucbe  

School reports

School reports will go home with all children tomorrow. These reports comment on attitude and application in Reading, Writing and Maths, and also include a general comment about how the year has gone so far. Learning conferences next week will be the time to discuss these reports in further detail if required.
