Kia ora koutou. Hello everyone.
Pink Shirt Day last Friday was a huge hit with the children having a lot of fun as well as learning a very serious anti bullying message.
Whole school assembly – provided we are at Alert level 1
Our first whole school assembly in term 4 is tomorrow Friday 23rd October in the school hall at 2pm and Hapori (Team 3) will be leading. Everyone is welcome to come along.
Team 4 fundraiser
In light of how difficult this year has been for so many families Team 4 would like to do something kind for others in New Zealand. As a team we will be running a collection for donations for the Give a Kid a Blanket organisation.
We are asking for donations of clean, washed blankets and clothing in good condition for families in need. Collections will be accepted up to the end of week 2 of term 4, October 23. Team 4 will run the collection across the school.
Donations can be left in the boxes at the front office.
Here is a little information about the organisation:
Give a Kid a Blanket
Give a Kid a Blanket started in 2015 as a Community Activated Art Action conceived and lead by artists Donna Turtle Sarten & Bernie Harfleet. The project has gone from strength to strength and is now a non profit registered charity. With the help of the community of kindness that has gathered around the project we collect blankets and other items of warmth and care and gift them to kids and their families through service providers including police, public health nurses, social and community workers.
Since 2015 we have gifted over 60,000 blankets and over 40,000 other objects of warmth and care.
We also support North Shore and Auckland Hospital’s Intensive Care Units with family support packs.
Junior Athletics Day- 5, 6 and 7 year olds
Athletics for 5, 6 and 7 year olds this year is split across two mornings on Monday 2nd November and Wednesday 4th November from 9:25am up to lunch time on the school field starting with sprints and moving on to field events. Parents are welcome to come along and watch provided we are at Level 1. Please still sign in using the paper sign in stations or the QR posters displayed around the school.
