Dear Parents,

As you may have heard Grade 5 are busy planning new communities at HKA for our first unit of inquiry, How We Organize Ourselves. The students are currently forming their own communities which they will run and manage.

At the moment we are in the planning stage and your child should be discussing ideas that they and their group are having. In the future they may come home with some extra information and a letter that they write to you, to ask if they can take part in their community if it takes place outside of school time, or after school. They may also ask for you to volunteer some time. This is all of course depending on your availability, willingness to be involved, and your child's commitments during the week.

Until you receive this letter no definite plans have been made. Please ask your child to outline their ideas, help them to set realistic goals and ask them about the actual organization of their community. With your guidance and that of other school experts we hope to enable the students to successfully create and run their own communities.

It has been great to see the students so motivated during this unit and we look forward to sharing more with you as this unit progresses.
