Kia ora koutou.  Hello everyone.

Lunch orders

Please make sure you send enough money to school for lunch orders placed in the lunch room. We have had quite a few orders where there hasn’t been enough money with the order and although our lovely lunch lady would not let the children go without their lunch she can’t keep doing this. Also make sure it is New Zealand money in the lunch order! 🙂

The last day to place an order for Issue 7 is tomorrow Friday 26th October.
