Newsletter, Term 1, Wk 1

Coroglen School Newsletter
Term 1 Number 1
Wednesday 5th February 2014

Hello / Kia Ora

Welcome back to school everyone. We have had a good start and we are looking forward to a fresh year setting and achieving positive goals.

Welcome to Reo McQueen (5years), Taylah Mathews (7years) and Sage Manukau (5years) who all join the junior room. J

Swimming – both the junior and senior students are swimming every day for the next 4-5 weeks.
Please help children to remember their swimming gear every day. If they can’t take part in swimming, they 
will need a note from home excusing them.

Year 7 & 8 Technology starts this Friday 7th February. Year 7 & 8 children will travel to MBAS at 10.50am and return to Coroglen by 2pm.
Please note that Technology times are different this year as Technology classes start at 11.25am and finish at 1.30pm.
All children will need to wear closed shoes to Technology.

Absences – Please notify the school before 9am if children are absent. Phone 866 3850 and leave a message if the phone is not answered. We check our messages often.
Please give the name of your child who will be absent from school and the reason for the absence (sick, family reasons, doctor/dentist appointments etc).
This is a safety measure for child health & welfare. If the absence is not reported our teachers will contact each family to find out why the child is absent.

Lawns fees – these are now due for 2014. For one child at the school the Lawn fees are $30 for the year. For two or more children at the school the Lawn fees are $60 for the year.

Stationery – We still have some stationery accounts outstanding from last year. These amounts will be added to your child's account at the school along with outstanding lawns fees from 2013 and will be coming home next week.
These accounts are sent home regularly. To avoid accruing large amounts of credit over time it is advisable to pay when you receive the account.

Gardens – Our gardens were looking beautiful at the end of the year, however we have lost our gardener, and the weeds have taken off over the summer. If you can spare an hour or even half an hour to pull the weeds from the garden please come down whenever you can. If we all do a little bit, it will make a big difference.

Newsletters by email – if you or a grandparent would like to receive our school newsletters via email, please email and register for newsletters to be emailed out.

 Have a fantastic week
