Athletics, MTB Elective and EOTC Events

Kia ora koutou, it has certainly been an action packed couple of weeks! A huge thanks to all the parents and whanau that have helped us out with athletics sports over the last couple of events. We have managed to get some amazing photos of the school athletics day! Come and check some of them out on display in the office.

Well done to the year 5 and 6 students who represented the school at the Waihi Cluster athletics up at the college. Many of the team have placed well and will be heading to the North Cluster competition on November 22. Good Luck!!!

Mr McGougan organised for his year 3/4 mountain biking group to tackle part of the Hauraki Rail Trail. A huge thanks to our parent helpers with trailers and bike racks. The kids had a great time!

The school has been humming with excitement and creativity as our tamariki have been cutting, pasting, tying, stuffing, chopping, bashing, squeezing, painting, stapling and stitching a ton of resources (RUBBISH) into creative arts for our up and coming show! Things must be coming together now as we are starting to see the floors again in our classrooms. Thank you for all the resources that have been sent to school and for the whanau that have been popping down to help with the creative process!

Camp planning is well underway for 2017.

Year 5/6 will be heading to Rotorua Lakes Ranch in Week 3.

Year 3/4 will have surf and turf, with trips to the zoo and to Waimarino.

Year 0-2s will be heading to Bullswool Farm.

More information and permission slips on the camps available for different ages is to follow. However you can start payments towards the camps now and it will carry over to next year! If you are making payments for camp please let Sharon know so she can allocate the money to the right account.
