Fundraising Meeting – This Friday 2nd of September at 3pm. Come along and see how you can help with fundraising for our school. There are opportunities coming up with many visitors to our area.

Senior Camp – Rotorua - I have a couple of different camp organising companies looking at our itinerary to see if they can do better.

Our thanks to The Lion Foundation for the $2900 donated towards our senior trip and a special thanks to Kelly Ngarimu for her work getting the application together. There will be a special camp newsletter in the next couple of weeks.

Cross Country – We have three runners at Tairua today and we wish them well. For those who qualify the next level of this competition, Thames Valley, is on Wednesday the 7th of September at Mercury Bay, assembling at 10.30 am.

Bike Programme – The last day for bike training is tomorrow, Thursday the 1st imageof September. Thanks to Amy and Bike NZ for their effort in delivering some wise advice to our cyclists in a fun way.

We had a great day with the Westpac Air Ambulance. As top fundraisers Corban Richardson, Jerome Melde, Tyrese Melde and Nikau Illingworth got a ride in the helicopter.

The entire school was lined up as the helicopter landed and the draft from the helicopter was tremendous. All the children had an opportunity to get close to the helicopter and ask questions of the pilots.

Thanks to Brooke Reynolds from the Westpac for her fabulous support and encouragement.

But wait there is more – the competition that keeps giving – We have a visit in term four from a mystery sportsperson. I wonder who???

Whitianga Library Presents – Craig Smith who wrote “The Wonky Donkey’ will be performing live for pre-schoolers and junior students on Thursday the 8th of September at 10 am to 10.40 am in the TOWN HALL. Please bring a gold coin donation. I have attached a permission and transport form at the end of this newsletter.
