NetBasics shows where the pitfalls are and gives you easy ways of staying safe online.

Pet Day
Pet Day is only 8 weeks away. Calving and lambing is coming to an end so if you haven’t already, now is the time to approach farmers about getting a calf or lamb as you need to look after it for at least six weeks prior to pet day. Or you can start a diary on the pet you already have.

When Chocolate Fish are Flying
When Chocolate Fish are Flying is a book for people of all ages written by local author Jan Hill. It is a mixture of magic, mischief and downright bad behaviour intended to give readers and listeners a smile before bedtime. The school have a few of these gorgeous books for sale at $37 each. A generous donation will be received from each book sold. They are hard covered and will make a lovely gift for children aged 1 to 89 years….
