Welcome to Norfolk School
Kia ora whanau,
It has been a busy time at school over the past week and the weather certainly has not been playing the game! Our school focus around our winter responsibilities has certainly been relevant. We have been very impressed with how our children have been making great choices given the horrible weather!
We often talk about the life skills of resilience and perseverance at school as you probably do at home. Well last week it was a pleasure to see these in action when our Year 7/8 sports teams had their fixture with Manaia School. The weather was absolutely horrendous, but given the limited dates we have available to complete fixtures and the distance our visitors travelled, the games went ahead. The attitude of all participants (and spectators!) was outstanding. They all gave everything they had and the sportsmanship on display was a real credit to our children.
We’re looking forward to some nicer weather this week when we visit Kaimata School. Thank you also to the wonderful parents and supporters who make these winter sports exchanges possible.
Nga mihi nui,
Andrew Georgeson – Principal
