School Pool, Easter Break and Pumpkin Night Raffles

Kia ora, we are taking notice of the weather bomb warning and postponing our ‘Splash and Dash’ to Friday 8th of April. Thank you to the huge numbers of whanau who said they could attend tomorrows event. Could we please book you in for the 8th instead? Please let Rachael know if you are available.

A massive thank you to whanau for helping with the school pool. It has been an awesome season and our learning community have enjoyed evening and weekend swims. With the changing weather, the pool will now close at 5pm each evening and the pool will close at the end of the term. Huge thanks to Ross Cowan for the attention you pay to the pool area. We have had a great season of learning thanks to your support.

The Easter Break is upon us this weekend. As part of the Education Act, please note that school will be closed on Tuesday 29th of March. We return to school on Wednesday 30th of March.

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding of the number of relievers that are currently in our school. Mrs Nik Laing is on sick leave and other staff have also been affected by the ever circling ills and chills. As part of our school contracts/Ministry of Education agreements, staff are also undertaking classroom release which may involve testing students. Luckily we have fabulous, highly skilled relievers who follow school programmes in affected classrooms. Enjoy the different personalities and their strengths.

Please remember the second hand clothing we have available through the office. The cooler weather is coming, let’s get prepared.

Lastly an urgent reminder about our Pumpkin Night Raffles. Sue and Nicky are coordinating these. Any donations of grocery items, mens and ladies hamper items, and drinks would be appreciated. Two items do date have been donated to date. Please have a look at home. All items are appreciated. Offers of running a food stall would also be amazing.

Check out the St. Patrick’s Day photos below - well done everyone!
