Welcome to Room 10 2016.

Welcome to all children and parents who will be part of the room 10 learning community in 2016.
I am excited about the year ahead. I look forward to meeting families tomorrow and Wednesday and to beginning our learning journey together.

This year room 10 is buddied up with room 9 which is another year 5 & 6 class, taught by Stacey Wheeler. We hope to explore the many opportunities that this brings, to teach and learn collaboratively.

This year I continue with my role as team leader for Muriwai Learning Community, which is a vertical team comprising the following classes:

Anna Sephton - Years 7 & 8 (Room 19)
Claudine Noronha - Montessori, Years 1-7 (Room 17)
Philip Greene - Years 3 & 4 (room 14)
Debbie Kwan - Years 1 & 2 (Room 13)
Louise Moss - Years 1 & 2 (Room 2)

We are all looking forward to working together throughout the year ahead.


I ask that the children call me by my first name, Tessa, please.

Each week (on a Monday) I will communicate, via our class blog, to update families on current learning and any other class-wide communication. The HSC (home school communication) page will provide a broad outline of current learning and a class calendar for the week ahead. If you need to contact me please email me (tessa@huapaidistrict.school.nz) as I regularly check and respond to emails. Please feel free to pop in to see me if you need to chat about something anytime. I am always at school from 8am and in the classroom from 8:40am daily.

Nga mihi, Tessa Fairchild
