Thank you for your support

Many thanks to you all for your support during the year. It has been wonderful that your children have been able to begin bringing their Chromebooks home with your support. Your children can continue reading and writing over these long holidays through the Summer Learning Journey blogging programme. I look forward to reading any posts that they publish.

If you were unable to make it to prize-giving on Thursday, here are some clips from the day: 

As you know, I am moving to Point England next year but will be able to keep in touch with your children's learning through their blogs.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a safe and relaxing holiday!

Ka kite ano!

TLN Student: a new system to access wifi outside school

As you know, it has been difficult for some of your children to connect their Chromebook to the internet at home using the Tamaki Learning Network (TLN).

A new network, TLN Student, has been created to make things easier for everyone.  TLN Student has been set up on your child’s personal Chromebook - but only for your child’s school email account.   Your child does not need a password to access TLN Student on their own Chromebook.

We will try the new system today.  At home - after 3:00pm - your child will need to:

  • Shut down their Chromebook and then turn it on again
  • Log into their school Google account
  • Select the wifi network TLN Student

If there are any problems, I will find out from your children!

E kore e tau tamaiti Me he kupuhipa ki te uru TLN Student runga i to ratou ake Chromebook.
