Welcome to Seatoun School
From the Principal
The third term has been a pretty solid one as teachers have endeavoured to follow-up on mid-year goals and identified needs. I am looking forward to the new term, with hopefully an improvement in both the weather and my own mobility!
Over the last couple of weeks we have hosted 9 teachers from two different out of town schools. It is a great compliment to the staff that their skills and competence are recognised to the extent that colleagues are prepared to spend the money and time to visit our school and learn from what we are doing.
As indicated in the last newsletter, planning for 2015 is now well underway. I would like to thank all the parents that have followed through and enrolled children for next year, or informed us that they are leaving Seatoun. We have a long list of out-of-zone parents keen for their children to join our school, but no decisions can be made until our numbers are pretty firm.
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.
