Newsletter, Term 1, Number 4

Hello / Kia Ora

Senior camp to Rotorua
We are planning to visit Rotorua this year in November. This camp is always a fabulous week where not only are we immersed in culture and history but also adventure. Some of the planned activities are the 4WD trip into Mt Tarawera – the crater, The Luge, Whakarewarewa, Rainbow Springs, The Zorb and The Tamaki Cultural Village. This is fully catered and the accommodation is of a high standard. The projected cost is just over $300 per child. I have priced these activities and these experiences would be well over double what we are being charged to do these activities privately. Some children have ideas for private fundraising and knowing camp is coming up some families have started putting aside small amounts to make this more manageable come November. Once this is booked and costs have been finalised, families can deposit camp fees in their child’s name straight into the school bank account.

BOT Meeting
Our next BOT meeting will be next Tuesday 26th May at 3.15pm in the staffroom.

Lost Property
We have some very nice clothes that must belong to someone in our lost property. Jean Saunders has washed all these items and they are now in the library. If they are not claimed by next Friday, all lost property will be donated to the op shop.

Teacher Only Day
Teacher only day is scheduled for Friday 29th May. We are having professional development with a resource person in conjunction with Whenuakite School at Coroglen.
Please be aware this is a 4-day long weekend for our children.
This website is a New Zealand site and a must look for anyone who has a passion for New Zealand History. There is wonderful information on site about the people who have helped shape our country. There are also opportunities here to search your family tree

Have a wonderful week,
Penny and the team
