In the last few weeks we have been able to enjoy some cluster sports. On Friday 17th June we took 3 teams (netball, football, and rippa) to Glenfield College to participate in a cluster sports day. We were hosted by the Year 13 Glenfield College students and the sports academy students. Our teams were mentored by these Glenfield college students who walked beside them all day as they competed, motivating them, making up chants and cheering from the sidelines! Students from Glenfield Intermediate School umpired or refereed the games and it was wonderful to see so many ex Bayview Students doing this. It was extremely well run and well supported by our own Bayview parents! I witnessed great sportspersonship from not only Bayview but all the other schools as well. A huge thank you to Glenfield College, Glenfield Intermediate and all our coaches and supporters for supporting our lucky tamariki!
On 22nd June our Year 6 netball team competed in a special netball tournament against a range of other schools. I would like to thank Victoria Anderson for transporting the players to the tournament and for supporting them as they competed. The players returned with big smiles on their faces and with some well deserved wins under their belt!
It is wonderful to be able to get back to these kinds of events which allow our children the opportunity to play in a sports competition against their peers!
During this term we have had many school trips out of the school grounds as well! Most of our classes have visited (or are due to visit) our local waterfall and stream. These are mentioned in our school pepeha and hold great significance to Bayview School and the Bayview area.
Our children are learning the history of our area and the significant landmarks that make up Bayview.
If you have been able to volunteer to be a parent help for one of these trips we thank you for your time and energy! If you were unable to attend perhaps you could ask your child to be your guide and show you these local landmarks! Sometimes if you go at night you will be able to see gloworms!
REPORTING MID YEAR PROGRESS AND ACHIEVEMENT
You may be aware that currently our teachers are writing the mid-year reports for our tamariki. These will be sent home on Friday 5th August. These will be followed by feedback meetings on Wednesday 10th August where your child and their teacher will share progress and achievement for the first half of the year. Please note that school will close early on this day so that we are able to meet with as many families as we can. School will close at 1pm on Wednesday 10th August.

ENROLMENTS FOR 2022 AND 2023
Thank you to everyone who has completed their intention to enrol forms for new children joining Bayview School either for the rest of 2022 or for 2023. This helps us indicate numbers to the Ministry of Education which determines our funding for 2023 and our staffing allocation i.e. how many teachers we can employ. This also affects any further classroom builds that may be required in the near future. If you have a child starting at any time this year or for 2023 please fill in the intention to return form on our website.
