Walkathon this Friday
20 Mar 2019
This is it - the wait is nearly over- Friday is Walkathon day. Keep encouraging your child to gather those sponsors as the funds raised will be used to enhance our sound system in the hall, update the waterslide and extend resources to support STEAM in class - STEAM being Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths
1st Prize a Samsung Galaxy Core
Donated by Noel Leeming valued at $199
A huge thank you to OfficeMax too for donating the 2nd prize of a range of art materials and a rucksack. Our third prize will also receive a selection of books and items to the value of $50 from our Lucky Book Club that the child will be able to choose for themselves.
If it is raining or the weather forecast is not favourable and we have to cancel, at 8am on Friday, we will send out an email and Schoolzine message to everyone and reschedule for Friday the 29th of March. We will also put a message on our website to say this.
The event happens in normal school hours. It is very important that the children are on time so that buses are not held up. The children will need a little extra food and a big drink, which is not fizzy. They will be carrying their own bags so it’s a good idea not to over pack them with things they don’t need. All ‘mufti’ clothing and shoes need to be comfortable and suitable for walking in ( no jandals). Shoes or trainers must be worn. Socks are important in trainers to avoid blisters during the walk.
Please don’t forget hats and sunblock as these are important for a safe day outside. It is a good idea to check the weather forecast the night before incase a light jacket is needed. Remember there will be no lunch orders on that day.
Remember to pay your activity fee or make payment arrangements through the office before the day as this money goes towards the funding of the buses. Details about collecting the money in will be sent out next week.
Let’s hope for great weather on the day and not too hot!

17 Mar 2019
Like you I am struggling to come to terms with what has happened in Christchurch.
As a family you will have had the opportunity over the weekend to work through this dreadful happening together.
This afternoon I have received links to resources that might help you if you are needing more support in this area.

"The attacks have been profoundly disturbing. This next week is a time to pause and to grieve, but we will not allow the attacks to undermine teaching and learning for children. These events only make us more committed to standing up for the values of tolerance, respect, diversity and democracy at the heart of public education" [Lynda Stuart NZEI Te Riu Roa President/Te Manukura]
