Coming Up

Welcome to the following students who have started at Campbells Bay…

James and Charlotte!

 Year 5 Camp MERC

On the last week of Term 1, the Year 5 students spent two action-packed days at the Marine Education Recreation Centre (MERC) in Long Bay. With the guidance of experienced instructors, they took part in a series of activities including surfing, rock-climbing, outdoor survival skills, archery, and the giants’ ladder. The students showed the CBS values by pushing themselves to try things outside their comfort zone, cheering their friends along when things got hard, and listening to the instructors. It was a superb learning experience and a wonderful way to finish off a great term.

New Entrant Friendship Seat

The idea is that children in the playground who are lonely or sad can sit in the seat to alert teachers and other pupils that they are feeling lonely. It is also hoped children will approach their friend in the seat, make sure he or she is all right and ask them to play. There will also be year two big buddies floating around the seat to help children initiate play with others. Thank you to Darren our caretaker for his crafty craftmanship! 

Pink Shirt Day

Thank you for your support of Pink Shirt Day last week. It was such an important day to recognise and promote our staff and students to Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying!

Bullying in Aotearoa is a problem. We have the third-highest rate of bullying in NZ schools out of 36 OECD countries and one in 10 workers feels discriminated against or bullied at work. Those bullied are far more likely to experience mental health issues. Pink Shirt Day works to reduce bullying by celebrating diversity in all its forms and supporting schools, workplaces and communities to be safe, supportive, welcoming and inclusive for everyone.

Our students can only learn how to prevent bullying by being able to observe or notice it, speak up about it, and feel safe to do so. Students last week learned about being an ‘up’ stander and also about what they can do to get support from an adult. Our school values support us to share a common language of behaviours we value and stand by at CBS. Respect, resilience and kindness. There is no place for bullying at our school.
