Hello / Kia Ora

Head Lice
The school has will be using Nature’s Nurse Lice Prevention Spray this term at the first signs of head lice in the class rooms. It is 100% naturally derived, has no harmful chemicals and is 100% free from synthetic pesticides. If you do not want you child to be sprayed with this solution please let the school know. A pamphlet was sent home last term about the product which is available from New World.

Final reminder these are due. If you misplaced your brochure and would like to order a book, please contact the school.

River Hopping Y5-8
The senior class is planning a river hopping adventure next Monday, your child should have brought home a special newsletter yesterday about it.

Charity Trail Bike Ride
This is only a week and a half away and we URGENTLY need volunteers to help out on Sunday 1st March. This is an annual event and is held at the Landcorp Farms on Purangi Road. We will need an extra person to help out with the parking, four people to help with track marshalling, one person to help supervise the junior track and four people to help on the BBQ selling drinks and sausages. Thanks to those parents and teachers who have already put your hand up. It is important that parents help with the school fundraising events as it is your child who will benefit from the funds raised. As there are a lot of new parents at the school, it is also a good opportunity to get to know the parents of your child/ren’s friends.
PLEASE complete the attached slip and return to school so we have an idea of who will be available to help out. We will be ringing if we have not received the slip back.


I am available/unavailable to help the fundraising committee out on Sunday 1st March.
Please tick the activity you would be interested in helping out in.
