Dear Parents and Caregivers
What a great way to kick off Book Week
with a parade. It was wonderful to see so
many children dressed as their favourite
characters. If you looked carefully you
could see Harry Potter and Hermione,
Hedge Wig and Bell, Angelina Ballerina
and a Wild Thing, Thing1 and Thing2 to
name just a few.
Having a week dedicated to books and
reading is such a positive way to highlight
the importance of imagination and
creativity. Books are able to transport us
to other worlds, to bring mystery,
adventure and fantasy alive which
encourages children to dive into reading
and continue to read as they move
I would encourage you to share a book
with a child this week, to discuss the
characters and themes and show the
importance of books in our lives.
On Tuesday 23rd May 33 children
represented Hillsborough Primary School at the Roskill Zone
Orienteering Day. The course was tricky and required a lot of
stamina. Our students were outstanding and showed perseverance
and great sportsmanship. One of our year 6 girls teams placed 2nd
overall and our two year 6 boys teams placed 2nd and 3rd overall.
We had heaps of fun and look forward to term four when we get to
learn more about orienteering as our kiwisport topic.
Thank you to all of our parent helpers and supporters on the
