We are coming to the end of our first full year of “in class” teaching in three years. Across the school, we have tracked rapid progress for our students and seen the difference that “in person” teaching and learning makes.
And our students have shown amazing resilience and grit this year to make up for lost time. Their unique interests, and passions show through their achievements and progress. Some things will have come easy for them. Some things would have been hard, and they have had a growth mindset, and persistence to make progress one lesson at a time. Well done to them all!
A huge thank you to our CBS staff, who always put their students’ progress, achievement, and wellbeing first. The rich learning opportunities provided, under continuing difficult circumstances, is a tribute to all our amazing educators and the people who support them.
Our strong school community makes a difference, and we are grateful to the parents and caregivers, grandparents and other special people, who participate in school life every day. Your generosity of time and spirit is important and much appreciated.
Board priorities for next six months
The Board have three main priorities over the next six months
- Most importantly, we need to recruit our next exceptional Principal ready to start in Term 2 2023. We have already begun the recruitment process, and will keep you informed as it progresses.
- Effective regular communication with you, using a variety of ways to keep you informed and involved. The new monthly “On Board” section in the school newsletter is our first step with this.
- Updating the school Strategic Plan. We have some data that helps us understand what is truly important to our school community and your aspirations for your children. You will also have an opportunity to provide more specific feedback and ideas, as our Strategic Plan evolves.
Final thoughts for 2022
We wish our Graduating Year Sixes all the very best for next year and the start of intermediate.
We hope all our students and families enjoy the last few days of 2022 at CBS.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer break and we look forward to seeing what 2023 brings for CBS and our community.

Teacher Only Day Announcement
Update from our Ministry of Education
One more term until we move in!
Construction on the new classroom block will continue over the school holidays as the Term 2 opening date approaches.
When you come back after the summer holidays things may look a little different around the building site with concrete going in at the front and back of the block, a new playground under way, and enabling works started for a bike shed and wooden boardwalk underneath the pōhutukawa trees at the back of the building.
The school’s front vehicle gate will also be widened, and one of the titoki trees removed near the office to allow for the driveway and curbing to be extended for fire and emergency vehicle access. Hopefully we’ll never need fire engines on the school grounds but we’ve been required by Fire and Emergency NZ to improve access width just in case we ever do. As part of the landscaping for the new building we’ll ensure another titoki tree is planted in a nearby location.
If you are using the school grounds in the holidays please be aware some of the construction fence lines may be moved, particulary access down the stairs past the school office to Rooms 7-10.
Fingers crossed for great summer weather so these outdoor concrete pours happen on schedule and we can’t wait to see the progress when school starts again next year.
