Congratulations Ben!

Many congratulations to Ben Butler who has recently trialed with children from all across Auckland and has been selected for a team
of 14 children to play for the Auckland Little League (Under 12) Baseball Team. Ben plays short stop and pitcher and can pitch a ball at around 60mph! He will be in training clinics for the rest of the year and representing Auckland early next year in the Gold Coast Summer Classic Baseball Tournament competing against teams from other parts of the world too. That’s quite an achievement – well done Ben!

 

 

 

Farewell Jenny

After 35 years with Glamorgan School, Jenny Watson has decided it is time she retired. Jenny has been a parent of the school, a teacher aide and resource manager. She is the person who rings if your child is absent and does a great job of pulling together all the different kinds of resources that support the children’s learning in class. She is a highly valued staff member, friend and colleague of our staff and we will be sad to see her go, but wish her all the best for the future to pursue her own interests at her leisure! Jenny will leave at the end of term 2.

Jammies in June (and July!)

For many years Glamorgan School has supported the Middlemore Foundation by collecting new pairs of pyjamas for them to distribute to thousands of children and young people in need across South Auckland. This year, as well as distributing jammies, they are teaming up with Habitat for Humanity to get Winter Warm Up packs to as many families as they can. Depending upon need, each pack can contain jammies, blankets, hot water bottles, heaters, draught stoppers, and window seals.

To support this we will be having a Pyjama Day at school on Tuesday 5th July. Wear your PJs to school and bring a NEW pair of pyjamas to donate, or bring a gold coin donation to put towards a Warm Up pack for a family in need.

Matariki – a message from Tāmaki North (#matarikiontheshore)

Tāmaki North (a group of all the head students from across Te Rakipaewhenua, North Shore) has put together a 5min video about Matariki.

Tāmaki North is designed to connect the high schools of the shore, to then create more inter-school events, groups, challenges, conferences and as well as supporting struggling students and families within our community. Tying in this notion of the North shore coming together to support one another.
