Welcome to Seatoun School
From the Principal
Looking Towards 2015
Teachers are starting their thinking around formulating 2015 class lists. Sincere thanks to those parents who have informed us if they have children who will be joining us, or leaving us, next year. Having that information now saves a huge amount of time. Our school works really well with around 435 children – this provides us with the optimal economies of scale.
Student in the News:
There have been a couple of newspaper articles recently featuring Liliana Mather, one of our Y3 children. Liliana suffers from a very rare genetic disease called Treacher Collins Syndrome. This condition affects facial bone and tissue development, causing issues such as hearing loss and eating and breathing difficulties. Liliana has been busy fundraising to attend a retreat in Auckland in November. This retreat will provide opportunities for sufferers and their families to get together to talk about the condition and support each other. Anyone wishing to support this cause can go to www.givealittle.co.nz/cause/TCSretreat
Tsunami Blue Lines
As many of you may be aware, the Wellington Regional Emergency Office or WREMO have been working with our local community on the 'Blue lines' project. The project will include the painting of lines, arrows and and placement of signs around the whole of the Miramar peninsula.
The working group (including a representative from Seatoun School) has been engaged in recommending the placement of lines, arrows and signs. WREMO have consolidated this input and provided some draft maps showing the proposed placement of lines, arrows and signs. There is a final period of public consultation before these are finalised.
If you are interested, please review the consultation document, and the proposed 'Blue Lines' map for the Seatoun area. If you wish to provide any feedback, consultation closes Thursday August 28.
Seatoun School was established in 1916 as a 'side school' to Worser Bay. In 1921, Seatoun was recognised as a separate school and in April 2002 we moved into our wonderful new facilities on the old Fort Dorset site. Seatoun School has a proud tradition of being a focal point in the community and has always enjoyed a high level of community involvement.
The school caters for children from new entrants up to year eight and reflects Seatoun's multi-cultural community. Students from Maori, European, Indian, Pacific Island, Chinese and Asian backgrounds attend Seatoun School and we are extremely proud of the safe, caring, family environment our full primary status provides.
Seatoun School is about learning for everyone, children, parents and teachers - learning to know, learning to do, learning to live and learning to be. We aim to accomplish the primary goal of education - engendering a love of learning, a desire to learn and a capability and confidence to learn.
