Term 3 ends at 3pm on Friday 30th September

Kia ora koutou.  Hello everyone.

Daffodil Day 

What a lovely way to end the week that was! The children looked amazing and we managed to raise $966 for the Cancer Society. Many thanks to room 8 children who publicised the event throughout the school and organised the collection. They looked fabulous as well! 

Friends of the School (FOTS) News

Raffle books went home earlier in the week with children who signed up.  Money raised will go towards new playgrounds at our school.

The Glamorgan Gives Back Raffle could be our biggest fundraiser yet, with potential to raise up $18,000 for our school, and the added bonus of supporting businesses in our local community.  We have 5,000 tickets to sell.  Show your support by selling tickets to family, friends, work colleagues etc and let’s get them all sold!  Tickets are also available for sale from the office.

There are more raffle books available for those keen to sell more!  Please email or see the FOTS team in the hall from 8.30-9am every morning.

Don’t miss out on your chance to win a prize for returning your sold tickets and money!! There is a team of volunteers in the hall to collect your money every morning from 8.30am to 9am.

Daily Prizes : For every complete ticket book sold, names will go into a daily prize draw. There will be ten daily prize draws for a $20 Westfield voucher beginning Monday 5 September  and finishing Friday 16 September.

Overall prize: There is one $100 Westfield voucher for the child who sells the most raffle books and returns their money back first.

***Final Day to return money is the week of Monday 19 September***

Absence from school

Please let the school know your child is absent by completing the form under the ‘Report an Absence’ button on the school website for each day your child is away (unless it is covid related, in which case we know your child will be away for 7 days). This form goes to both Paula Campbell and your child’s teacher and so is the best way of communicating absences, as if the teacher is away Paula will still receive it.

Do you have any spare PE uniform?

Our Kahui Ako/Community of Learning is organising school uniform dress up boxes for our local Early Childhood Education centres. We no longer have a daytime uniform at our school, but if you have any PE shirts that you no longer need and would like to donate, we would love to add them to our collection. Please bring them to the school office or to Mrs Barker in Room 4.

Save the dates

The school Art Festival will be happening on 20, 21 and 22 September in the school hall. Every child will have a piece of art on display and the hall becomes our art gallery! The hall will be open before school and after school up to 5:30pm on 20 and 21 September and to 6:30pm on 22 September.

Combine a visit to the Art Festival with Sharing the Learning afternoon on 22 September and see your child’s classroom between 3pm and 6pm and let them tell you all about their learning as well as visiting the amazing art works!
