Kia ora koutou. Hello everyone.
Welcome back to term 2 and a special welcome to all those children and families that have joined the school for the first time this week. We hope you all had a good break over Easter and the ANZAC weekend.
Many thanks to Joshua Sullivan and Noah Kubalek and their families for representing the school and laying a wreath at the Browns Bay Service on ANZAC Day.
2023 Glamorgan School 50th Jubilee-athon – Online Sponsored Fundraiser
It is a very special year for Glamorgan School! To celebrate our history and to support our school’s future we are holding a Glamorgan 50th Jubilee-a-Thon fundraiser in Term 2.
Our Glamorgan 50th Jubilee-a-Thon will support the children in learning about the school’s 50-year history through a programme of fun activities and events during the week of 22nd to 26th May.
Children will be collecting online sponsorship for their participation in our 50th Jubilee-a-Thon. All funds raised will go towards an exciting new refurbishment of our well-loved, and extensively enjoyed, 22 year old playground. This will benefit current and future Glamorgan students!
How will this fundraiser work? This year we have partnered with online fundraising company Go Raise It. Collecting sponsorship online makes it super easy for everyone – no more door knocking, your child can collect more donations from further afield (friends & family living overseas, work colleagues etc) and no need to worry about handling cash!
Next Thursday 4th May your child will bring home a letter with all the details about the fundraiser and how to sign up. We will also pop this letter onto the school website under Parent Information- A-Thon and email it to parents as well. Our launch day is Friday 5th May when the site opens and is ready for you to sign up and our a-thon week is 22-26 May. Look out for the information and sign up over the following weekend to be in the draw for spot prizes drawn daily the following week!

Resene Wall Worthy Competition 2023
In this competition ten lucky schools, youth groups or early childhood centres won the chance to paint their little piece of New Zealand Beautiful. To enter, a mural design for our local community which communicates an environmental or conservation theme such as sustainability, biodiversity, climate change etc had to be submitted.
