Kia ora koutou. Hello everyone.
Pink Shirt Day is tomorrow Friday 21st May. Come to school wearing pink to show your support of the Bully-Free NZ anti-bullying message. If you don’t have anything pink to wear, perhaps make yourself a pink badge or bracelet with an anti-bullying message on it. If you wish to make a gold coin donation this will be collected from classes tomorrow morning and donated to the Mental Health Foundation.
World-A-Thon Fundraiser – fact sheet and sponsor sheet coming home on Monday
This year’s a-thon is a World-a-thon and next Monday 24th May your child will bring home their fact sheet to learn and a sponsor sheet. The World-a-Thon was chosen to support the children’s learning about the geography, history, bird, plant and sea life of our own and other countries. Fundraising from the a-thon supports items such as extra learning resources in the classrooms, furniture, ICT equipment and library. Please help your child to learn their facts and ask the teacher if you are unsure of anything.
The testing day will be Thursday 9 June and children will have until Friday 25th June to gather their sponsorship funds following the testing day. We do not encourage children to go ‘door knocking’ and prefer that you monitor the soliciting of sponsors. Donations are welcomed should you not approve of gaining sponsorship. We appreciate your assistance in this regard. Please complete the sponsor sheet and send this to school on the test day.
