Parent Support Groups

Māori Parents

At Newlands Intermediate we provide an opportunity for our Māori parents and caregivers of Māori students to meet twice a term. This provides a forum for our parents to voice any concerns or desires they may have for our Māori students. After a shared kai we often move to our large shared learning area to korero and learn new skills. Our focus for 2013 and 2014 is Māori arts and crafts.

It's In the Bag

This is a fun way to recognise our students who are consistently on task, focussed, hard working, supportive of others, polite, respectful and good role models both in and out of the classroom

HOW IT WORKS

Each day classroom teachers nominate a student that has shown any of these special qualities during the day and that nomination goes on the list for the next ''Its In the Bag'' assembly.

All nominated students are applauded in this assembly by their peers and teachers and then the names of 5 students are drawn from a bag. These 5 students are then invited to draw from The Bag.

In The Bag are a number of vouchers for Rebel Sports, movies, books, canteen credit, Subway lunches and an ipod shuffle! Five lucky students get one of these prizes every fortnight.

After 10 nominations a student automatically gets to draw from The Bag and automatically wins a prize! Each fortnight classes receive updated lists showing how many nominations each student has.

At the end of each term the reasons for nominations are reviewed by the school Leadership Team to identify some of our students eligible for recognition on Trophy night in areas like Citizenship and Attitude and Effort.
