Attendance Follow Up

As indicated in the Principal’s Panui last week, Rutherford has an increased focus on the importance of regular attendance at school. You may have received an email providing information about your child’s attendance for the previous few weeks. The purpose of this information is to keep your fully informed about your son or daughter’s attendance and not to cause you distress or upset you. You can also monitor your son or daughter’s attendance on the School Portal at any time when you log in. If you have any questions about the attendance report please contact your son or daughter’s tutor teacher in the first instance.

Performing Arts Showcase

Students have been working very hard this term in preparation for the Performing Arts Showcase next week. Do come along to view outstanding performances in Dance, Music and Drama on either Tuesday 4 or Wednesday 5 April at 7.30pm. Please note tickets can be purchased online only at
There will be NO Door Sales.

Term 1 Reports
Next week reports will be ready for viewing on the School Portal. Please remember to log in via the website or use this link to access the Portal. Once in the portal you can click on Reports to view the latest report for your son or daughter.
