Newsletter, Term 3, Wk 7

Hello / Kia Ora

School Performance
The visiting group of older people braved the wet weather and flooding to come out to Coroglen School yesterday and were delighted with the performance our children put on for them.

Kapowai Kiwi Group
Kapowai Kiwi Group urgently seeks a volunteer to help with funding applications. Please phone Tony Harrison on 866 3886.

The Bays Best
A big thank you to parents and performers for all the hard work over the last month put in for The Bays Best. We couldn’t have done it without all your support. The kids shone on stage and had a wonderful performance.
Many Thanks Justine & Jenny
Pet Day

Thank you for returning the pet day slips. To date we have 8 junior lambs, 3 senior lambs, 3 senior calves, 1 pig, 3 rabbits, 2 possible cats, 3 chooks, 2 ducks and a crab.

Due to bad weather yesterday we had a poor turnout for the fundraising meeting for pet day, so we would like to try for this Thursday at 3pm in the library. We hope to see lots of parents there :)

Don't forget to send you non-perishable grocery items to school before the end of term.

Board of Trustees Meeting
Our next BOT meeting is on Tuesday 22nd September in the staff room at 3.15pm. All are welcome.

Whitianga Touch Club
Junior Touch for boys, girls and mixed teams 6 years and up will be starting on Thursday 15th October and played every Thursday from 4.30pm at the Mercury Bay Multi Sports Complex. If you are interested in getting a team together, you can pick up a registration form from the school.

Basket Weaving
Last Friday Fiona Illingworth came to school to show the children how to weave harakeke baskets as part of our integrated unit study Our Place, Our History.

Daffodil Day
We had a bright group of children last Friday dressed up in yellow and green. Thank you for your donations. $203 was raised and virtually all the children chose for their money to go to Kyla Ngarimu with $5 going to the Cancer Society. The children in the junior room got busy and made some lovely daffodils which they attached to a poster they had worked on. Jenny Upsall took the poster and money into town and presented to the Mercury Bay Cancer Society and explained how the majority of the money went to Kyla this year. They had heard about Kyla that morning and were happy our school was supporting her as well.

Flooding on Tuesday
Due to the flooding yesterday, Hot Water Beach Road was closed in the early afternoon and our relief teacher Mrs Clow who lives out that way had to leave at 12.30pm so she could get home. In the afternoon the junior and senior room children all worked together in the junior room on an art project with Jenny Upsall.

Have a fantastic week
Penny and the team
