Shore to Shore Fun Run 31 March 2019

The Harcourts Cooper & Co Shore to Shore is a 5.9km fun run and walk from Takapuna Grammar to Milford Reserve in Auckland on Sunday 31 March 2019. Fliers will come home with the children this week. You can purchase bus tickets to get you back from the finish line to your car or vice versa – see the website for details. This event is North Harbour’s largest fun run/walk and helps the community to support their local schools, as a portion of each entry fee gets donated back to the schools in the form of Sports Distributor vouchers. You are encouraged to have fun and dress up for the run/walk. There will be spot prizes, competitions and entertainment at the finish line – so bring the whole family! You can register at http://shoretoshore.co.nz/ and click on Glamorgan School.

Travelwise Walk to School Month

As part of the Travelwise Walk to School Month the whole school will take part in a 1km walk around the local area just by our school on Monday 25th March between 9:15 and 10:15am.

Walking School Bus at Glamorgan School

Keen to make the school drop off/pick up easier and stress free?  Check out the Walking School Bus.

A walking school bus is a group of children who walk together to/from school with parent supervisors along a set route.  Parents take turns and shouldn’t need to walk more than one day a week. The other 4 days are free. The children have fun, socialise with other kids and arrive at school on time.  It’s also a healthy way to get to school and reduces congestion at the school gate.

If you are interested in finding out more about Walking School Buses, come along to the staffroom on Tuesday 2 April at 9:00 am.

If you can’t make this time but are interested, please contact Sharon Close sharonclose@glamorgan.school.nz

Advance notice –  Parent/Child/Teacher discussions Wednesday 3rd April. School closes at 1pm.

As mentioned in Week 2 newsletter, Parent/Child/Teacher discussions will be held on Wednesday 3rd April from 1:10pm. Please note that school will close early at 1:00pm that day. There is no facility to look after children when the school is closed so please make alternative arrangements for that afternoon. If your child goes to Glamorgan Kids Club then they can go at 1:00 as it will open earlier that day.

Updating School Records

A form was sent home last week to all children from the office to update your family details so we have the correct phone numbers, email addresses and emergency contacts for your child. Please complete this form and send it back to school as soon as possible. If all details are still the same please write ‘no changes’ on the form and send it back anyway. Many thanks.
