Hello / Kia Ora

Coroglen Charity Horse Trek - What a truly magnificent day!! The weather was perfect and what a wonderful group of riders we hosted for the day.  Thanks to all of the riders who came along and supported our school fundraiser.  Most importantly we just want to once again thank the Macdonald family for providing the most amazing venue for this trek and for providing the guides for the day.  Thanks Damon, Peter, Clarke and Russell the feedback has been amazing! Thanks also to Kerrie, Sam, Fiona, Teresa, Jessie, Kale, Michelle, Gemma, Hazel and the Wilderland Families as well as Jeanne and Sue for providing the most amazing food, the riders all raved about the catering!!   Last but not least thank you Rachael for donating the mussels and John Mountney for the very kind donation of the port-a-loo for the day.  We raised $1560 for the school with an additional donation of $100 each to St Johns and the Westpac helicopter.  Have a look at the incredible photos (thanks Sam and some of the riders) on our Facebook page Coroglen Charity Horse Trek.  We are looking forward to next year’s trek already.

Wednesday School Bus – The bus drops the children off earlier at Mill Creek on Wednesdays. Parents please make sure you are there earlier, as the bus driver drops the kids off, then carries on into Whitianga and does not stay with them until they are collected.

EMR visit – Experiencing Marine Reserves representative Anton Bowker took the students in the senior room and parents out to the Pa end of Hahei and Gemstone Bay yesterday to compare what marine life is like inside and outside of the local Marine Reserve. Everyone who attended enjoyed the experience. Photos are by Amy Hodge and Jessie Lockhart. For more pictures, please check out our website

Mercury Bay Council and the Mercury Bay Community Board are looking for passionate community members who are interested in becoming part of a working committee for the development of the site of the (old) Coroglen sale yard land.    Anyone is welcome to attend - we are meeting at the Coroglen Tavern - this Wednesday 2 April at 6.30pm.

Notes From Pat
Hard to believe there are only two more weeks until the end of term.  We will be busy finishing of our various projects in the senior room. 
The children and adults were certainly buzzing about their snorkelling trip yesterday and are all looking forward to their Pinnacles expedition tomorrow.  Many thanks to Jenny for organising these great educational opportunities and I hope the children appreciate how lucky they are.
 Don’t forget daylight saving ends this weekend. 

Thought of the Week
If at first you don’t succeed, see if the loser gets anything.

 Have a fantastic week
Pat and the team
