Newsletter, Term 3, Wk 1

Hello / Kia Ora

Term 3 dates
Welcome back to school everyone. This term has 10 weeks and ends on Friday 26th September.

School Holiday break-ins.
At the beginning of the second week of the holidays, our school was broken into by children no longer enrolled at Coroglen School.
All have been spoken to and families notified. They will be doing work around the school and reimbursing any expenses.  All concerned have consequences for their actions and we are working through what these will be.

Supervision after school hours
If your children are at school after school hours, weekends or school holidays, please make sure they are supervised at all times.

Pet Day
Reminder Pet Day is on Saturday 18th October. Children need to be thinking about their pet, and beginning their diaries which will need to be worked on at home.

Water bottles
Children in the junior room are reminded to bring their water bottles to school to keep them hydrated so they can concentrate on their school work.

Home play Challenge
This involves activities at home and nutrition advice for lunch boxes. The children have a booklet which is filled out at school after the completion of their tasks. Please ask your children about this fun way to keep active. We are also keeping active with skipping to build fitness for the cross country which is on Tuesday 12th August. We are able to take the children for a trial run prior to the event. Watch this space.

Thank You Douglas of your kind offer to cut kindling so we can start our fires in the class rooms. We will be in touch.

Senior Camp
Advance Warning: We are planning a trip over to the Waitomo district to explore the caves and surrounding area. Some of the older children may have the chance to black water raft. I am waiting to hear back from the education officer with details of charges and available activities. There will be a cost involved. I will let you know as soon as I have the information about activities and costs involved.


Jack Frost visited
Jack Frost visited the school last night, and left behind a thick layer of ice. Riley-Jean and Caitlyn collected a pile of this ice from the slide in the school playground, patted it into a ball, and put it in the freezer.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday with your children. They have come back ready to learn.

Kind regards

Penny and the Team
