This week’s message from the Principal:

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

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties and friends who were able to come along and spend time in classrooms on Friday to share the learning from this term.  We had an amazing turn out, probably helped by the lovely spring weather.

Show time is upon us for Eddie the Penguin Saves the World.  Our Year 1 and 2 children and teachers have put in lots of time to bring you a fun show.  Thursday night is sold out but there are still tickets available for Friday afternoon.  It is going to be fabulous!

Did you catch the article about lunch time ‘boot camp’ in this week’s Cromwell and District News?  This initiative has grown from a bike club run by Linda Forbes for Y5 boys one lunchtime a week to keep a bunch of boys busy.  There are now three lunchtimes a week with a range of physical challenges and a team competition.  It is lots of fun and is contributing to a peaceful playground environment.  Linda is supported by Ray, Cole and Alisha to run the activities.

We are coming near to the end of term and we still have a large amount of lost property in the box outside the admin block.  Please come and check if any of your child’s gear is in the box so that we can have it all returned to rightful owners before the end of term.

All classes are involved in athletics training for our Goldfields athletics champs that are being held in week 3 of next term.  Please make sure your child has suitable footwear and clothing for running and jumping.

Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu
