This week’s message from the Principal:

Kia ora parents, caregivers, whānau and friends of the school,

t was really great to get the Y3-6 athletics events completed over the last two days. We have had excellent feedback from holding the event over two afternoons rather than a whole day and may look to continue this format in the future.

Goal setting meetings over the next two evenings are an excellent opportunity for parents to catch up with teachers. Please make sure you bring your child to the meeting. Teachers will complete a goal setting document as a record of the meeting and you will receive this as a written report.

We had a bit of a lunch order disaster last Friday. One of our providers missed our order completely and we had 19 children without lunch. We scrambled and made toasties for the children who missed out. We have changed providers and are now offering 5 nuggets and chips or 3 mini hotdogs and chips from Cromwell Night ‘N Day for $6.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Marlow Pie fundraiser. There have been approximately $12,000 worth of pies sold that will net us a profit of just over $1,800. This goes into our Camp/EOTC fund to subsidise camp and EOTC costs for all students.

We have our ice skating sessions starting in a couple weeks. Please note the change of the first session to Wednesday 25 May. Each middle and senior school class will get a full day at Ice Inline in Alexandra for skating and curling. Our Y2 children will have a morning session. Please let us know if you need help accessing warm and waterproof clothing for these sessions. We have a limited supply of spares at school.

Kia Pai to wiki

Nāku Noa, Anna Harrison
