Swimming – All students at Coroglen have swimming every day. Please check that your child has their swimming gear at school daily. We would also ask that all hair is tied back or in a swimming cap. 

IXL-The senior students have access to a fun and educational maths review site. They have their own logins and their progress is monitored. They can access the site from any home computer. The site is adaptive which means the site will adjust to the individual child’s demonstrated ability level. If used regularly this programme has a proven track record lifting student achievement and understanding. www.IXL.com

Women’s Triathlon – Sunday 03 March. Entry forms are available from Te Korowai. 275 metre swim, 10 km bike ride and 2.8 km run. This is a fundraiser for a local health project.

Fundraising Committee – A huge thank you to Jessie Lockhart and Lloyd McQueen, for donating $1000. They ran the parking at the pub for two band nights. A great start to the year.

Please remember the 10th of March for the trail ride. There is a slight track change that will mean there are marshals on the course this year for a road crossing. We will keep you informed about the jobs that need to be filled. This is a major fundraiser for our school.

The fundraising committee donated $5000 to the School. Great work everyone for a successful 2012. Let’s make 2013 another great year.  Fiona Illingworth

The staff and students of Coroglen appreciate the hard work the Fundraising Team do to help us fund our school activities. Kia ora. Thank you.
