Everyone Welcome! We have an author/storyteller working with pupils this week and there will be a performance by our senior school on Friday afternoon at 2:30pm. This replaces our usual school assembly.
NZEI & PPTA Paid Union Meeting
The NZEI and PPTA unions have called a joint paid union meeting on Wednesday 14 September at 1.30pm.
Many of our teachers will be attending this meeting. Students, with permission from home, will be able to leave school at 12:30 pm on the day. The school will be providing supervision for any students whose families cannot pick up their children that afternoon. More information will follow soon.
All Franklin schools are involved in these meetings.
Kids After School will do an early pick up that day – parents need to contact them to arrange this.
Great effort at the Year 6 Mathex!
Congratulations to our two teams of mathematical stars who did us proud at the Franklin Mathex competition last night. As 2015 Champions the pressure was on our teams and they responded magnificently by finishing 5th out of 40 teams.
