School Community Picnic tomorrow Friday 3 March from 5-7pm on the school field
Glamorgan School turns 50 in 2023 and we are planning some special events throughout the year. Our first event will be a school community picnic tomorrow Friday 3rd March (save day 17th March) from 5-7pm. There will be face painting and fun activities such as frisbees, sack races, egg and spoon, corn hole, ring toss and more that children and families can rotate around. Please note this is a family event – all children must be accompanied by a parent and not dropped off by themselves. Staff will supervise activities but they are not there to look after your children. Once the activities are finished at 7pm, staff will be free to go, but you are all welcome to stay longer on the school grounds if you wish to. Please take all your rubbish home with you as well.
Friends of the School (FoTS) will be selling drinks and ice blocks for cash only. Pizza orders are now closed. If you can spare a half hour to help with pizza collections or selling the ice blocks and drinks during the evening, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
All year 1,2,3 and 4 children and those who were interested in years 5 and 6 should have brought home a notice about playing netball this year. Please check your child’s bag if you have not seen it. If the notice is lost or you want your child to play and they have not brought a notice home, you can download the notice and registration form from the school website under Parent Information-Sports. Registration and fees are due by Friday 17th March.

Message from the Ministry of Health
Are you and your whānau protected from measles?
With people travelling overseas again, there’s a risk that someone with measles could unknowingly bring the disease back to Aotearoa.
Measles spreads easily and quickly, usually between people who are unimmunised or only partially immunised. It can be serious and life threatening. In the 2019 measles outbreak in Aotearoa more than 30% of the people infected had to be admitted to hospital.
The best protection against measles is the free MMR vaccine. It will protect you and your whānau, and prevent the virus from spreading.
You will be protected against measles if you:
- had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine
- had measles before
- were born before 1 Jan 1969.
If you’re unsure if you or your tamariki have had any or both doses of the MMR vaccine, check by calling your GP or hauora provider. Alternatively, check your Plunket Well Child Tamariki Ora book. If you’re still not sure, be safe and get immunised – there are no safety concerns with having an extra dose. MMR vaccines are free at your local health provider and many pharmacies.
As measles still occurs in many countries, if you’re travelling overseas these holidays it’s especially important to be immunised to prevent the risk of being unknowingly infected and causing an outbreak in Aotearoa on your return.
More information about the measles vaccination can be found here:
