Athletics postponed and a few dates

Kia ora koutou


  • Postponed athletics
  • End of year dates
  • Staff appointment

Simon and his team have postponed this Friday’s area athletics at Maungakaramea due to the weather conditions.  The postponement is next Tuesday the 15th November.  Fingers crossed we get better weather and can go ahead with the day.  We hope that parents/caregivers can still support us on the day.

Staff appointment

Over the weekend the staff appointment committee interviewed three strong candidates for a permanent teaching position.  We are very pleased to announce Natalie Lynch has been appointed.  Natalie has been teaching at Otaika Valley since November 2021 and has been a part of our latests professional development focuses, in particular ‘Writers Tool Box’.  She will have the added advantage of knowing the students at Otaika Valley School, our systems and process and learning needs of her next year class.  Miss Lynch will teach in Room 6 next year, with Mrs Nieddu moving to Room 5 and still leading the senior syndicate.

Congratulations Natalie.
