Happy New Year! Welcome back to school. I hope you enjoyed your summer holiday with friends and family. This week we have enrolled 12 children-YAHOO!! Welcome Mason, Ma’tais and Annabel in Room 5 (Baxter arrives next week), Elyssa in Room 6,Crystal and Bess in Room 7, John and Nathan in Room 1, Aidan in Room 2 and Cameron, Matt and Ashley In Room 3. Phew! Our current roll is 125. Remember when we hit 131 students the Ministry will pay for Phil Gurnick’s position. At the moment your fundraising pays his salary.
Room 2 and 3 head away to camp at Waitawheta on Monday. Room One are having an overnight stay at Bowentown on the 24th of February. This is a great way to kick off the year and develop relationships within our classes. The School picnic will be slightly different this year. We are starting the day with a duathlon. All children will participate in a run/swim/run event at ANZAC Bay. The swim will be along the beach in a depth children are comfortable with. After our duathlon, our usual swimming and beach activities including the lolly scramble will follow.
I am looking forward to another positive year. Please drop in for a chat anytime.
