Today we were invited to the hall to see the great work that the Eco Warriors have been doing at our school. They are encouraging us to be more sustainable and they had wonderful ideas for us to think think about. We entered a lot of competitions - the prizes were all sustainable. Thanks to the teachers and eco Warriors who are sharing their fantastic knowledge with us!
Notes and Reminders
Eeek. We have had another case of headlice in our hub - please be vigilant and check your child’s hair regularly.
Could you please spend the time helping your child to choose and practise reciting an appropriate poem. These could come from an online source, book or your child’s school poetry book. We ask that a copy is also sent along to school to practise at reading time. Poem choice needs to be made by the end of this week.
The class competition will be Wednesday 22nd August at 11:00am in each room.
There has been a change of time for the Year 3 & 4 Poetry Final. It is now 11:15am - 12:20pm on Monday the 27th of August (Week 6). Parents are also welcome to attend the Tōtara and Kahikatea final.
Our Scholastic book fair will be in the hall the week beginning Monday 6th August. Books make great gifts for anytime of year and the book fair really helps to raise money for our school library, so come and check it out! Families will be invited to view the book fair before and after school all week.
Teacher Strike Day
This is scheduled for Wednesday 15th August and the decision has not been made lightly. Please feel free to talk with the teachers about the reasons for this action. More information will be forthcoming from the school board shortly.
