Whanau Hui - next Wednesday 5pm in the Camp Whare
Next Wednesday is our annual Whanau Hui. This hui is a chance to discuss Maori education at our school and everyone is welcome. Please bring a plate of kai to share if you can - the school will also provide some food. Please bring the kids too.

PTA Calender and Diary orders are due to the office by 3pm Friday 2nd Dec.

Intentions & Classes for Next Year
Thanks everyone who has let us know of your intentions for next year. This helps with sorting out class lists, which we hope to let you know by the end of this year also - this is the first time Burnham School has done this in a long time so we hope this will make the start of 2012 easier for our tamariki!

If you have not yet done this, please go to: and let us know!

Teachers are busily writing reports and so we will be sending these important documents home soon. As always, if you have questions or concerns please contact your class teacher.

Staffing Updates
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Susanne (Sam) Walker as kaiako for Room 7 next year. Sam brings with her a wealth of experience in teaching and comes to us a kaiawhina at Branston Intermediate. Welcome Sam!

We are also pleased to announce the appointment of a new position which is shared between Burnham, Ladbrooks and Lincoln Schools. We have managed to create a position of Sports Co-ordinator with the intention of setting up a cluster between our three schools for competitions, professional development of staff, special events and more. Lucy Ellery has been appointed to this exciting new position.

For more details of both these exciting appointments, please visit the Principal Blog at
