Splash 'n Dash, Pumpkin Competition and Swim Team

Kia ora, the term continues to fly by. We are welcoming the cooler days and having our fleece tops for warmth in the morning. We are very fortunate to have boxes of second hand fleece tops at school. You are welcome to check them out, and take them away for a gold coin donation.

Splash and Dash is a week away. We would love your support with transport and supervision. This day is a relaxed outing that children always look forward to. Car seats/boosters are required for children under 7 years/142-148cm. Please let your class teacher know if you can help. See separate flyer for more details.

Our pumpkin competition evening is coming along with a grand team of helpers. The new time is 4-6pm. Prizes this year are for the heaviest pumpkin, best pumpkin face and veggie creations. Please return the slip on the flyer, letting us know if you are entering a competition or coming along for the night. All returned slips go into the draw to win spot prizes. If you would like to help out our event organizers are pumpkin competition-Robin, communication/evening coordinators-Bindy and Annemarie, competition tables– Linda, raffles and prizes-Sue and Nicky. Each class is running a food stall. Check out what your children’s class has selected. It will be a fun night.

Congratulations to our school swim team who performed to a very high level at our swim sports (see photos below from the year 4, 5 and 6 Swimming Sports held at Waihi College). What a challenging day. Our next step is the cluster event which is today. Good luck to our representatives. Go hard out!

Strep Throat is doing the rounds at the moment. If your child has stomach cramps, fever and a sore throat please see the doctor as it is highly contagious.

Nga mihi nui.
