Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whanau and Friends of the School
Thanks to all the parents, whanau and friends who supported the children at our athletics sports which were held yesterday in very cold conditions. Ariana is collating the results to identify the children that have qualified for the CO Athletics Sports which will be held on Tuesday 4th November at Alexandra. The children involved will receive a consent form this week. I was very impressed with the encouragement children gave to each other, and for their persistence over the course of a very full day. Congratulations to all children for the effort you that was given to their events.
Very exciting news… We are now a Green Gold Enviroschool! Last Friday, Claire Higginson, CODC Councillor, and six Enviroschools facilitators from Wellington, Otago and Southland met with thirty senior children, Board of Trustees members, and staff parents to learn about the action we have taken, since gaining our Silver Enviroschool Award. To gain the Green-Gold status, we needed to show that Enviroschools practices are embedded in all aspects of school life, and that we are integrating our actions into all of our school programmes.
Today our year 6 children have been auditioning for roles in the end of year pantomime, Cinderella and Rockerfella. As all classes are involved in the pantomime, children will be beginning their practices for this from next week – a very busy few weeks ahead.
