Welcome back to 2019

Welcome back to 2019 to returning families and new whanau.  This year has started off with the Education Life Caravan visiting and Harold made an appearance at our first assembly.

The children are swimming Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and we follow the New Zealand Swim Safe programme.  Parents are welcome to come along and be part of the programme.

Swimming Times for 2019:

Whanganui East School Learner’s Profile

The Learner’s profile is a way in which the community and the school can have a shared understanding of what a future-oriented learner looks like.

It is essential that as a school we make explicit what we stand for and give direction for our actions.

The Learner’s Profile  describes the skills, knowledge and attitudes that our students will need to develop while at Whanganui East School, in order to participate in a range of life contexts beyond the school.
