Principal’s Message:

Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whānau and Friends of our School,

Although there are only nine weeks left of the school year, there are many events involving our children over the term. Today our Junior School held a Book Character day, with children who are transitioning to school joining in with this event.

Thanks for your support for our Annual Book Fair, which is a fundraiser for our library. The book fair runs all week, open before and after school for parents to visit. There is an excellent range of books for all ages – a great opportunity to purchase books for Christmas.

Our Goldfields Athletics Sports will be held on Tuesday 24 October, commencing at 9:15am and finishing at 2:05pm.  The timetable for events can be downloaded from our school website (there is a link to this on our Facebook Page.) Parents are welcome to join us during the day. Children can be taken home at the conclusion of the sports if parents are there to collect them. Please let class teachers know if you are taking your child early. Children should bring plenty of snacks,  their lunch and a water bottle which can be refilled during the day. There will be sunscreen available for children to apply. Please check all children have sunhats, which are compulsory for terms 1 and 4.  They  can wear whanau t-shirts for this event. All children who gain places in events will be presented with certificates and ribbons at assembly, 9:30am on Friday 3 November. Children will be selected for the Central Otago Athletics sports from this event. Please send children to school ready for athletics, even if the weather looks inclement. We will advise of any delayed starts or postponements via our website, by email and by Facebook.

At the end of this term, all classes will be involved in an ‘Extravaganza’, with one matinee performance and 2 evening performances in the week beginning the 4th December. Details to follow.
