Welcome – Nau mai haere mai

SCHOOL SUN HATS:  School Sun Hats are required to be worn for outside play from next week onwards.  If your child requires a replacement hat, they are available from the school office for $15.

Congratulations to both our EPro8 teams.

Our Yr 5 & 6 team of Quinn, Mila, Connor & Guy came first and our Yr 7 & 8 team of Kymahni, Helena, London & Poppy came 2nd in their respective challenges. Both teams now move on to the final which is at Devon Intermediate School, NP on Thursday 4pm for the Yr 7 & 8 team and Friday 10.30am for the Yr 5 & 6 team.

Senior Athletic Sports: Monday 30th October at Toko School for Year 5-8

Children will travel to Toko by bus. If you wish to take your child home at the end of the day you must tell their teacher.

As the day begins with a briefing at 9.15am we would like all children in Years 5 – 8 to be at school by 8.30am to allow buses to leave before 9am. There will be food for sale but we ask that children bring sufficient food and drink for the day and ensure they have their school polar fleece or jacket to wear if the day is cooler.

The day will begin with the Open 800m race in year groups followed by a rotation of activities including long jump, high jump, discus and running.  Times below will be fairly accurate in order to get through the day.

Parents are welcome to come along and watch. if you are able to help on an activity please see your child’s teacher.
