Student Led Conferences - Tuesday 2nd July 3.15pm -7.45pm
Your children are preparing to share their learning with you. Remember, there are six conferences happening in the classroom at the same time. The teacher will make contact with every family at some point during the conference. They are there to support and prompt if necessary but won’t take over from your child.
On the night of the conference you will be given your child’s mid year report. The report states how well each child is doing according to the National Curriculum Levels and what their level of effort is. The report also includes how well your child is developing within the Key Competencies.
We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Student Led Conferences. The code you will need to access the online booking system is kkqyaat www.schoolinterviews.co.nz.

Dear Parents and Caregivers
The NZEi have advised the Red Beach School Board of Trustees that the principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action on Wednesday 29th May 2019 for a full day.
The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we can’t provide the normal teaching services during the strike so the school will officially be closed for instruction on this occasion.
Accordingly, it’s important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children during the period of the strike.
Our onsite holiday programme “Kelly Club” will be offering a programme on this day – please contact Kelly Club directly if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org .
We know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern.
Thank you for your understanding.
Andrew Short Chair Board of Trustees

Measles Outbreak in NZ
09 May 2019
Red Beach School have been asked by the Ministry of Education to share the following information with you:
• There are currently measles outbreaks happening across the world, including here in New Zealand (Canterbury). We have had eighteen cases this year in Auckland.
• Measles is a serious disease and symptoms include a high fever, runny nose, cough and sore red eyes, followed by a rash starting behind the ears and spreading to the body a few days later. One in 10 people with measles need hospital treatment and the most serious cases can result in deafness or swelling of the brain.
• If you are concerned that your child may be showing signs of this serious illness, please keep them home from school and call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 611 116. It’s important to call first because measles is highly infectious and could infect others in the waiting room.
• Students showing signs of illness should also be kept home from activities involving large groups of people such as school camps, sports events and performance festivals. For more information about measles, what to look for and how to protect your child and/or yourself, please visit:
