Hello / Kia Ora

The Big Sad Wolf – Thank you to all the parents who helped out on Monday with transport to Whenuakite School to watch this production. I hope you enjoyed it as much as the children did.

Bridge Holdup Thank you to our bandits Jessie, Gemma, Kerrie, Kale and Kylie who were busy holding up visitors to our area at the Coroglen bridge last Friday. Their efforts raise a total of $2,403.70. This is a mammoth amount raised in a few hours. Special thanks also go to Lloyd for helping set up, Sam for the lovely refreshments and Trevor Barclay who assisted counting the money.


Grocery Hamper raffle Our grocery hamper desperately needs more items. Those families who have not contributed groceries yet please sent them to school by the end of the week. This is traditionally our BIG raffle earner, but we do need your participation in supplying items.

Pet Day – Saturday 21st September 10am – 2pm. Children do need to be at the school from 9am to organise their pets, and help set up the stalls.

Every year we ask each family to provide a cake or biscuits for the Cake Stall. Please drop these off  on Saturday to the Cake Stall by 10am.

The senior room will have the Coroglen School Olive Oil for sale for $16. This is made from the olives they picked and had pressed in Thames last term. They also learned about adding value to an item and produced pure olive oil lemongrass bars of soap. These are 100% natural handmade soaps full of wonderful benefits for your skin and are selling for $6 each, or you can buy the oil and soap for only $20.

The junior room have also been busy producing packets of sunflower seeds with their artwork on the packet. If you would like to buy your child/s artwork packet of sunflower seeds please send $5 to the school before pet day otherwise it could be sold on the day to someone else.

Free ear clinic service for children – is Friday 27th September at the town centre car part in Whitianga from 8.30am to 12.30pm. Glue ear assessments and management, grommet checks, wax/foreign body removal & treatment of discharging ears. All children must be accompanied by parent or caregiver.

Walking our World – Last Friday the school had a visit from Peter who is walking our world for balance, peace and freedom. He spoke to the children about making a difference in the world, and about world peace. Peter started his walk on 21st December 2012 from a place where the sun first stikes the Australian Continent , the peak of Mount Wollumbin. Pictured are the children walking Peter to the end of the driveway. You can follow his journey  by visiting www.walkingourworld.org

We will be leaving the school just after 9am and returning by 10.30am. Sand dune specialist Jim Dahm will be there to explain the importance of our sand dune ecosystems.
