Hello / Kia Ora
We apologise for not sending a newsletter out last week due as our network system being down and we could not access the printer.
Thank you to those parents who have returned the parent volunteer slips to help in the junior room.
School Photo Day
School photo day is next Tuesday 19th May. We have attached an envelope for each child. These need to be returned by Monday 18th May with the payment. Sibling portraits will be taken following the completion of all individual photographs. You will need to request the sibling photo pre-paid envelope from the office and have it returned by Monday as well.
We have one amendment to make on the phone tree list. Please change Sharon Deane’s mobile number to 021 930 452.
Sushi orders are back on for Tuesdays. Orders need to be given in with the correct change in an envelope to the office by Fridays every week.
Sushi selections are Chicken, Salmon, Tuna, & Vegetarian on request. All at $5 for a full roll
We have attached the stationery accounts for those families who have an outstanding balance. Your urgent attention to these outstanding matters will be greatly appreciated.
Our next BOT meeting will be on Tuesday 19th May at 3.15pm in the staffroom.
The speed limit for passing a stationary school bus that is dropping off or picking up children is 20kph in either direction.
It’s set low because at 20kph almost all pedestrians hit will survive, but at 50kph 20% will die. Children are more likely to run out into the road without looking, and the school bus is a large obstacle that obstructs their view of the road. If you are following a large vehicle that suddenly slows on a rural road, don’t assume you can overtake; it might have spotted a school bus and is obscuring your vision of it.
Have a wonderful week,
Penny and the team
The finalists have been chosen. All finalists are automatically entered into the People’s Choice award category which will be chosen by the community.
One of the contestants is David Hotham – Not only does he put in serious hours as a lifeguard at Hot Water Beach, he also coaches the junior members. David also volunteers for St John and LandSAR where he is on the committee, attending callouts and helping out with fundraising events.
