Newsletter, Term 3, Wk 6

Hello / Kia Ora

The Bays Best
This is for the senior children only. Could everyone please meet at Whitianga Town Hall by 5.15pm this Saturday 29th August for a sound check, this should be finished by 5.50pm if everything goes to plan.
We are the third act performing. We will then meet outside the Town Hall by 6.35pm to prepare for the performance.
Parents are welcome to wait in the supper room while your child performs, however if you would like to watch them performing, you will need to buy a ticket from
 Whitianga Paper Plus for $10.
Once again THANK YOU to parents for all your support over the last few weeks.

Pet Day
Pet Day is only four weeks away now.
Jacinta O’Donahue has kindly offered to co-ordinate this event. She needs the help and support of all the school families to ensure this is yet again a successful day. A meeting will be held at school next Tuesday at 12 o’clock(ish- after the music performance) for everyone who would like to help with Pet Day.

We have started collecting grocery items for the Grocery Hamper which is raffled off at Pet Day. Each year we ask parents to send along at least one non-perishable grocery item.

Please fill in the form at the end of this newsletter to indicate what type of pet your child/ren will be bringing to pet day (do include pre-schoolers). We will then be able to order ribbons and prizes.

School Performance
The senior room are performing at the school next Tuesday 2nd September from 11am to a group of older people in the community. If parents or grandparents would like to come along and watch the performance, you are all most welcome.

Rotorua Camp
We have had 8 responses back about this trip to date and have decided to go ahead with this trip. More details will be coming home shortly. Please return your permission slips if you have not already done so.  

Poi Making
In another unit of Our Places, Our History the senior room children have been making outdoor poi as part of traditional maori games. Last week students learnt the traditional maori game Poi Toa and on Tuesday began making their own outdoor poi.
