Photo: JASON OXENHAM Books are out and school's back this week with classrooms around Auckland filling with students for the start of the academic year. More than 5000 children will start school in Auckland for the first time this week and five-year-old Tayla Trebilco is one of them. Tayla starts at Three Kings Primary School tomorrow. By coincidence, her first teacher also taught her father when he was at Hillsborough Pri- mary School. Although a little bit shy, Tayla says she is excited about reading and writing'' and of course, playtime. Her parents Kelley and Barrett Trebilco say 2011 is an exciting time to be starting school and children these days seem to be more prepared for their first day than ever before. Three Kings Primary prin- cipal Jo Willmoth says there seems to be an increase in new entrants and the school roll is growing steadily. There is a lot to look for- ward to for primary schools this year and challenges like the Rugby World Cup term time changes and national standards shouldn't hinder any progress,'' she says. Three Kings had its first review of national standards, reporting back on them at end of last year, and will be looking for feedback from parents. But I wouldn't like to think that's something to detract from the start of the school year,'' Ms Willmoth says. While the ongoing challenges of national standards are setting the scene for primary schools, intermediate and high schools are poised for another year of term-time disruption. Auckland Regional Post Primary Teachers Associ- ation chairwoman Linley Hunter says strikes are con- tinuing, with industrial action already planned for term one. High schools across the region should expect disrup- tions to the school week between February 21 and 25.
