Thank You!

We would like to thank our amazing community for their support today when we were suddenly asked to close down the school by the Ministry of Education due to a terminated water supply. We really appreciated the way so many of our families were able to rally around and collect their children earlier than usual.
Thank you all so much – school is back to normal tomorrow!

Hello Freyberg whānau,

Unfortunately Watercare has notified us that due to an emergency breakage in our area, our water supply has been terminated for the remainder of the day. As this is is a health and safety risk, we have been advised by the MOE that we need to close the school site for the remainder of the day. If you are able, we would appreciate it if you could collect your children from their classroom as soon as you are able.
We have been informed that the fault will be remedied by the end of the day so we will be open as usual tomorrow.
As this affects everybody on our school site – Kids Club, Preschool and Community Education will also be closed for the rest of the day.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Kind Regards,
Freyberg Community School

Fundraising – Mufti and Sausage sizzle tomorrow!

Tue Jun 01 09:00pm

Kia ora Freyberg Whānau,

A reminder that our school-wide mufti day is coming up tomorrow with a gold coin donation supporting the many Fundraising at Freyberg initiatives that we have underway. A delicious sausage sizzle will also be taking place at midday, with sausages available for $1.00 each. Separately cooked vegetarian options will also be available for all of our non meat eating tamariki!

Please hand in all money to classroom teachers so that they are able to record sausage orders for our BBQ team.

Ngā mihi,

School Staff and Fundraising at Freyberg team

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.

Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
