Term 2 Thank you

Thank you to everyone who has helped in any way at school this term. I really appreciate everyone who continues to support our fantastic teaching and learning programmes. The relationship between home and school is very important for children’s learning, by supporting and helping in school activities this helps build strong relationships between home and school.



Congratulations to Lenē Kotze who has got a job as a junior property manager at Barfoot and Thompson, Orewa. Her last day will be Friday 5 July. Lenē has been a valued member of our Silverdale School community since 2019 when she joined us as a learning assistant. She will be greatly missed by us all. I wish Lenē the best of luck.


Last Day

The last day of term 2 is Friday 5 July and school will be finishing at the normal time. I wish everyone a relaxing and safe break. Term 3 will start on Monday 22 July.

Car Park Safety

A concerned parent witnessed a dangerous situation where a child exited a car on the right side of the driveway and stepped in front of their vehicle. Fortunately, they were driving slowly and avoided an accident. Parents please do not drop your child off on the school driveway parallel with Longmore Lane. You must drop your child off at the stop, drop go area to prevent potential accidents.

Last week Silverdale School sent 3 Year 6 teams to a field day run by Netball North Harbour. Overall there were 70 teams from HBC through the Shore to Grey Lynn. Silverdale 1 & 2 played very well and held their own amongst very intense competition.

Silverdale 3 made the finals, placing 2nd in their grade, well done!

Special thanks to Bronwen Newcombe, Tara Hendry and Tarryn Floyd for coaching the girls and to the year 5s who joined to support the year 6 teams and make up numbers. Also special thanks to the parents who gave up their time to be with and support the teams. 

All the girls stayed and cheered on Silverdale 3 for their final and they all showed the best KERI values.
