Term 3  Week 7 – Wednesday 30th August 2023

Welcome – Nau mai haere mai

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Daffodil Day fundraiser last week. We raised $235 for the Cancer Society.

The Student Council made some amazing daffodils which are on display on our front lawn. They certainly added to the atmosphere of yellow on the day.

Taranaki Bulls Rugby Fixture

We have had little interest in filling a bus to go to the rugby game vs Tasman on Sun 10 Sept. We do however, have tickets available. These are General Admission on the Northern Terrace.

Please get in touch with Karen in the office if you would like tickets which will be given out a week before the game which is Sunday 10 Sept.

Congratulations and well done to our year 7 & 8 teams who represented our school last week in the McLeod Shield (Rugby) and Hurlstone Cup (netball) matches. Our rugby team won all their games and will play 2nd place getter Kaimata in a final match for the shield. Date is still to be determined but will be this term.

Enviro Report By Mila Evans

On Thursday the Ngaere School Enviro team worked together with a teacher from Enviro schools Taranaki, Sue Rine. Sue comes every Enviro afternoon. This week we are finding and creating microbes in soil. There are billions of microbes at work and we can see them with a microscope. We had some smelly experiences, but Sue says it smells for science. We got some soil and filled it with water, then we put it in a third of a jar. We had some boiled eggs and peeled the shells off and then we smashed the egg into little bits and put it in the jar on top of the soil. Then we filled the rest of the jar with water, but not to the top though. After that we found some hay and we felt what the inside felt like and it was hot and then we talked about it and found out that’s because all the hay is bunched together to make warmth. Then we put an egg in a bag and put it inside the hay and we will check on it next week. 

We are working hard to create the best soil we can for our gardens using all the scientific knowledge we are learning.



3 Prizes up for grabs! 


Tickets and money are due back Friday 1st September and the raffle will be drawn on Friday 8th September.

If you are able to take and sell more tickets, please see Karen in the office.

Once again, thank you to everyone who donated items towards this raffle.  



As the Bobby Calf scheme has been wound up, the school unfortuntely misses out on a significant fundraiser.  Please consider the Bull Calf Nomination scheme, where a bull calf is reared by you and the proceeds from the sale of the calf would go to the school.  We understand that this is a difficult year for some people, but any support would be very much appreciated.  Thank you.


School photos are still being processed.  We will advise when the access codes have been emailed.
