This session will be really valuable for all our parents, but particularly for those who are new to Island Bay School or who want to understand more about what underpins the way we do things here. To make it as easy as possible for people to attend we are organising:


Child care: Teachers will be supervising a kids' Movie Night in Rimu from 6:45pm for the duration of Mark's presentation.


Food: Come along from 6pm and grab an easy dinner! Delicious hot soup and bread will be available for $2 a cup in the Learning Hub. If you can, please BYO cup.
