Looking Forward to Camp!

Dear Parents,

Camp is always a major highlight of the year. 
Fresh air, sunshine (hopefully), lots of physical activity and lots of fun!
It is a wonderful opportunity for the students to develop their independence and confidence as they are taken out of their comfort zone and provided with safe challenges.  It provides an opportunity for the students to work together and support each other, helping them to develop their communication skills and deepen class bonds. 

Please remember to send back the consent form for the water activities as soon as possible.

I am also pleased to offer the Class Historian (Riddhi) and the Class Photographer's (Sachi) latest edition of The Weekly Class.  We have had a hectic few weeks so this newsletter covers weeks 5 -7. (Ooops......We seem to have used too many photo's in the newsletter....and it's not uploading......I will try to attach it as a pdf in an email)

Lastly, I hope you have booked a time with me for the Parent/Teacher/Student interviews next week.  Please be on time for your interview.  I will stick to the allocated time slots so if you are late you may need to reschedule at another available time.

Look forward to meeting you all next week,
Hare Krsna!

The Weekly Class (weeks 3-4)

Dear Parents,

The term is moving so quickly!
We are already in week 5 nearly half way through the term.

Dates to remember:
School Gala Sunday 13th March
Gaura Purnima Wednesday 23rd March
Three Way Conferences 4-5th April
Gaura Nitai Class Camp 12-15th April  (I will send more information about the camp closer to the time)

Please find below the next edition of "The Weekly Class" created and written by Riddhi Prajapati and Sachi Prasad - both Year 8.
I'm attaching it as a jpeg, so in order to read it you need to click on it and then zoom in (I think that should work).

Hare Krishna,

Class Blog Up and Running!

Hare Krishna Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Gaura Nitai Class 2016!

It has been a lovely start to the year and I look forward to meeting you all later in the term.
I am new to blogging so needed help to set this up.  Thank you to Riddhi for helping me!

We would like to welcome two vibrant new students to the class: Nadiya Chandra Yr 6 and Vaani Pillay  Yr 7.  They have settled in quickly and add to the sweet nature of the class.

Below is the first edition of "The Weekly Class"  which is created by our 'Class Historian' and our 'Class Photographer'.  This edition was created by Gopal Krishna Yr 8.  He will be missed as he left this week for another school.  Riddhi Prajapati has gladly taken over the role as Class Historian.


If you haven't already done so, please send back the camp forms/camp payment and the homework book order forms/payment.
