Pyjamas for Friday’s Water Safety Session!

As part of our Water Safety Unit at Pioneer Pool, your child will need to bring a pair of pyjamas. 





Please no onesies or summer pyjamas, the swimming instructors have asked for 2 piece winter pyjamas 
(separate tops and bottoms).

More math puzzles



Thank you from the rabbits


Hi everyone




Thank you so much for offering to do rabbit duty at the weekends and/or taking care of them over the holidays.  If you missed out this term, I would like to put you on duty in Term 2 if that suits. I will put out another form closer to the time so you can let me know which weekends you will be unavailable.
Thanks again.

Child Friendly Search Engine

11/05/2018

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Currently we are showing our Discoverers how to use Accessit (our Library catalogue -http://accessit.stmartins.school.nz:2000/#!dashboard ) to find great websites to help them with their inquiry work - websites which have been identified as useful and safe which they can access with a couple of clicks and without having to dive into Google.  

We're also introducing them to Kiddle (https://www.kiddle.co), a child friendly search engine which retrieves websites aimed at young students. 

We'd really appreciate it if you would bookmark these sites for them on your home computer so that they can quickly find them for their own use.  While you're there take a quick look yourself, hopefully you'll find some useful information too e.g. the parent collection available for loan under the quick lists tab. 

There are many other things that Accessit can do for our students but our focus at the moment is on quickly finding appropriate websites.  If you'd like to know more take a look at the how to use this web app video on the front page or contact me if I can clarify anything for you. 

Kind regards
Bridget Hayes
