Annual Trail Bike Ride – This Sunday 2nd March. We still need about three more people to help in the food stall. Thank you to everyone who has returned your volunteer slips, and those able to help out. – Fiona Illingworth
Country Schools Swimming was held yesterday at the MBAS. All the children performed extremely well, and were all well behaved. It was a fantastic day for everyone. Thank you to the parents who attended and helped out with supervision.
Peninsula Central Swimming will be at MBAS on Monday 3rd March. We will be in contact with the parents of those children who have qulaified for this event.
Life Education Trust – visit is on Tuesday 4th and Wenesday 5th March. The junior room children will be studying a unit focused on “Getting on together” and the senior room children will be studying a unit focused on “Making the right choices”.
A gold coin donation would be appreciated to help cover the cost of this very good health education opportunity.
Mathletics – a reminder the senior class and Year 3s have access to a free trial for Mathletics until this Friday 28th February. Children are able to access the website from home. Jenny is keen to continue this programme this year. Your opinion as to the worth of this programme is appreciated. Please comment on your survey sheet.
Consultation survey – Please find this document attached, take a few minutes to read, respond and return it to school. Your input will help us to better meet your child’s needs.
Head Lice – Have come to visit again. Please check hair and treat as necessary. If you are having difficulty getting on top of this problem the school nurse can be of assistance and is happy to advise.
Project Energize- Briar worked with both classes today looking at the four fabulous food groups. Ask your children what they remember and how many servings they need to make them “Go, Glow and Grow!”
Lawn fees and Stationery-
Thank you to those who have already paid these accounts. One or two are becoming quite overdue and significant amounts. No further stationery will be issued to some families at this time. Lawn fees are a donation and as such are tax deductible.
Miss Anderson update – At this time Penny is still in Waikato hospital and tests continue to try and diagnose the cause of her illness. The staff and board are working together to ensure school programmes continue as smoothly as possible in her absence. We will keep you informed as more information comes to hand. Penny wished to thank everyone for their support, especially the many kind invitations extended to Antonio.
Have a fantastic week
Penny and the team
