This week’s message from the Principal:
Kia ora Parents, Caregivers, Whānau and friends of the school,

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the FOTS colour run on Sunday 12 March. It was a really fun event. Thank you to everyone who gave up their time to volunteer and who contributed to the fundraising. FOTS raised over $6000 for our school.

We held our athletics assembly today and it was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the students who gained placings in our school athletics events. We also celebrated the 54 students who qualified to compete at the Dunstan Zone athletics. They were fantastic representatives for our school and came away with excellent results. We have a team of more than 20 Year 5 and 6 students who have qualified to compete at the Central Otago champs next Wednesday.

We also had a group of eight Year 5 and 6 students representing our school at the Kids Lit Quiz in Queenstown on Monday. This is the first time we have had a team at this event, they had a great day and we will be keen to send teams in the future.

Our Year 3 and 4 students are set to embark on their camp and EOTC activities next week. They will be out and about in the Cromwell and Central Otago environment with the Year 4 students spending two nights at the Bannockburn School Camp. We know that they are going to have an amazing time.

Whānau leader elections were held today. We had a record number of our Year 6 students presenting speeches and vying to lead their groups. All of our Year 6 students are taking active roles in our whānau time and being excellent role models for our younger students.

This year’s whānau leaders are:

Kiwi – Jenna and Lucah

Pukeko – Rocco and Amelia

Tui – Sophie and Envy

Tirairaka – Becky and Kaia

Korimako – Cooper and Thea

Puāwai Rua are raising funds for Cyclone relief for the Central Hawkes Bay Mayoral fund by holding a car wash in our school car park next Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Come along and support this great cause!

Kia Pai to wiki

Nāku Noa, Anna Harrison
