Kia ora koutou. Hello everyone.

Haepapa (Team 5) will lead our whole school assembly tomorrow Friday 23rd August at 2pm in the school hall. You are all welcome to attend.
Daffodil Day Friday 31st August-Let’s go yellow!
Each year we support one or two charities from the many that approach schools and our support is again going to the Cancer Society. Daffodil Day is on Friday 30th August and we will be having a ‘yellow’ day at school on this day. Children can wear yellow clothes; have yellow ribbons or shoes. They may also have ‘yellow’ activities at school planned by their teachers. A daffodil will be available for a donation to the Cancer Society, made when the classes come to the hall during the morning and put their coins into the giant daffodil! Thank you for your support.
Inter Schools Winter Sports Day
Well done and congratulations to the hockey, football, basketball and netball teams who participated last Thursday in the Northern Bays Interschools Winter Sports Day. Feedback from the organiser at Kristin School was that the behaviour and sportsmanship were fantastic from all the school’s teams and supporters, only really good positive comments from all venues. Our teams did extremely well with football and miniball coming first and netball third which is fantastic. We will always take the wins, but we value the participation and commitment from the players, coaches and managers above all else and we thank them very much. Thank you also to Michaela Nicol who organises our participation in these events.
2020 Enrolment Applications
If you have a child turning 5 next year or know of anyone else who has a child and wants them to come to Glamorgan School in 2020 please let the office know as soon as possible. All in zone children are guaranteed a place.
Out of zone applications- advance information
Any out of zone applications for 2020 will to go into a ballot held in October, if we have any places to offer. All out of zone applications must be in to the school office by 15th October.
Please note: if you have a child enrolled out of zone already this does not give any other siblings in your family an automatic place at the school. Each out of zone enrolment must go through the ballot process and therefore it is essential you apply as soon as possible.
The Variety Show is coming! 18th and 19th September
Book these dates into your family calendar now! The whole school will present a variety show with items from every team. This is not to be missed!
There will be two matinee performances at 1pm and two evening performances at 6:30pm on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th September. All the children are expected to take part and be available for all of the performances.
We are aware that the most popular shows are usually in the evening but with over 580 children not everyone will be able to come along to these shows and we urge families to plan ahead and come to the matinees as well. As our children are young we feel three evening shows is too much and the extra matinee performance we have included this time provides the opportunity for more of you to see the show.
Board of Trustees Meeting
The next Board of Trustees meeting will be held on Wednesday 28th August at 7pm in the administration building and anyone is welcome to come along.
