Newsletter, term 4, week 2


Term 4 Number 2
Wednesday 23rd October 2013

Hello / Kia Ora

 

 Welcome  Shriya Clohessy to our school who joins the junior room. We hope you enjoy your time with us

 

 

 

 
Athletics –Our children are training for athletics every day so need clothing that is suitable for running, throwing and jumping.

Preparing the back field – We still urgently need help to prepare the back field for athletics. This involves marking the lanes for sprints (50 and 75 metres). We also desperately need someone to help get the long jump pit ready – this needs digging out and refilled with clean sand. Please let us know when you can come and help.


Gardens - The gardens have been weeded over the holidays and are looking good, however the weeds continue to keep coming up. If you can spare even 5 minutes when
dropping or picking your children up to pull out a few weeds as you see them coming through, we should be able to stay on top of it. Thank you.
 
Tag Rugby - Try scorers on Monday night for Coro were dante (2pts), Sam (2pts), Jerome (1pt) drawing the game 5 all. Glen lost their game 5-3, try scorers were Jett (2pts) and trinity (1pt).
Registration fee for tag players is $10 per child and is payable to the school before our next game on Monday 4th November. This pays for the registration and T-Shirt. We hope to receive the notice with our game times next week.
Please note there is no game on Monday 28th October due to being Labour Day.

BOT meeting is this Thursday 31 October at 5.30pm, in the school staff room. Everyone is welcome.

Nits – please check your child/rens hair as we have had another break out of head lice in the school. If you do find head lice, please keep your child home until they are treated and cleared of lice to prevent further spreading.

Anchor Milk – the children have been enjoying their drink of milk during morning interval this week. Pictured are Sashka, Myah and Aliza from the junior room.

 



 

Badminton – Tracey from Sports Waikato visited today to teach the junior and senior children badminton. Pictured are the junior children learning how to tap the balloon gently with the hand they use to write with in preparation of holding the racket and hitting the shuttlecock.



Please note: School will be closed on Monday 28th October for Labour Day and will re-commence on Tuesday 29th October.

 

Labour Day commemorates the struggle for an eight-hour working day. New Zealand workers were among the first in the world to claim this right when, in 1840, the carpenter Samuel Parnell won an eight-hour day in Wellington. Labour Day was first celebrated in New Zealand on 28 October 1890, when several thousand trade union members and supporters attended parades in the main centres. Government employees were given the day off to attend the parades and many businesses closed for at least part of the day.
