Hello / Kia Ora

Pet Day – It was great to see all the pets at pet day, from guinea pigs to lambs and not forgetting the pet turkey who enjoyed the day as much as the children. Thank you to our parents who volunteered behind the stalls to help make the day a successful and enjoyable pet day gala and to our judges who had the task of judging the pets. The olive oil and lemongrass soap the senior room were selling sold out making a profit of $316. Well done guys. The cake stall and raffles made a total of $710.10, the fundraising committee made about $1,000 in the food stalls and the Willigers stall made $448.20 which was donated to the school.

Booster Seats in cars for children -
The New Zealand child restraint law will change on 1st November 2013. Under the new legislation children will be required to use a booster seat up to their seventh birthday. (the current law is up until their 5th birthday).
This means that all under sevens will require a booster seat when travelling by car on school trips.
It is generally accepted that it is safest for a child to stay in a booster seat until they reach a height of 148cm (usually between nine and 12 years). (see Safekids)
If your child needs a booster seat when travelling on school trips, by car, please make sure this is organised with the driver who is transporting your child, before the trip occurs.
Teachers will include information about booster seats on consent forms.

Sunsafe Term 4—Hat wearing is compulsory when outside, during terms 4 and 1. Hats need to be able to effectively protect faces, ears and necks from harmful sun rays.
Wide brim hats and bucket hats are the preferred style. Legionnaire caps are excellent

Enjoy your week
Penny and the team
