Bullying Free New Zealand Week
Bullying-Free New Zealand Week starts 15th May and ends with the Mental Health Foundation’s Pink Shirt Day on Friday 19th May. This year’s theme is Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying! The week provides a great opportunity for students to celebrate what makes them unique and encourage schools and workplaces to build environments that are inclusive, welcoming, supportive, safe and free from bullying.
The week ends with Pink Shirt Day where children and adults can wear anything pink on 19th May in support of Bully-Free NZ week. We realise not everyone has pink in their wardrobe and we do not expect families to buy especially for the day. A pink hair tie or wristband is just as welcome. If you wish to make a gold coin donation this will be given to the Mental Health Foundation.

PhotoLife photos next Tuesday 16th May
School class and individual photos will be taken on Tuesday 16th May by PhotoLife and the children will have a flyer in their bag today with details. Sibling photos will not be taken at this time – they will be done on the same day as team photos in term 3. The flyer has a space to order sibling photos but please do not send your sibling photo information back to school, we will resend the flyer for sibling photos in term 3.
The school does not take any money for the photos, all payments are made directly to Photolife. When the photos are ready to purchase PhotoLife will send a key for each child to school. We will send these home to you and they have details of how to order your photos.
