Principal’s Message:

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

Pip and Harold from the Life Education trust finish their visit to our school today.  Each class has participated in sessions with a focus on friendship, building positive relationships and leadership. These programmes all fit with the New Zealand Curriculum essential learning area of Health & PE. For further information about The Life Education Trust and their programmes please see their website http://www.lifeeducation.org.nz/

Camp and EOTC organisation is all being finalised.  Hopefully the weather will clear for our camps and activities.  Year 6 students are away from Monday of next week to Camp Columba.  Year 5 students are away from Wednesday to Naseby and our Year 1 students are involved in activities around Cromwell through next week.  Year 3 and 4 students are involved in activities and camps the following week.  Thank you to parents who have made payments for camp and to those who have offered to help with fundraising.  We will get to our fundraising activities after everyone has returned to school.

Thank you to everyone who has completed the online form to update emergency contact details and general school permissions.  This has been emailed to all class email groups. Please fill out the form sent from each class that you have a child in so that we end up with information on class spreadsheets. Please let us know if you need a paper copy.

Our Goldfields swim sports are going to be held on Friday 23rd February to select a team to compete at the Uru Uru Whenua zone (Cromwell-Clyde-Alex) swimming sports that are held on Thursday 8 March.  Please make sure permission slips are returned for all competitors by Thursday 22 February.  Thank you to the parents and caregivers who have indicated that they are able to help out with timekeeping.  We plan to start racing at 11am.


Kia pai to wiki, Naku noa atu, Anna Harrison
