Hello / Kia Ora
There will be a Fundraising Committee meeting this Thursday 3rd Dec at 3.30pm to finalise the accounts before the end of the year. We urgently need people to attend this meeting to make plans for next year and to fill some positions for parents that are moving on. See you there!
Pool keys cost $50 per season and can be purchased from the school office. This is an increase on past years to cover our costs of running the pool over the school holidays and to have a new lock for the gate and keys cut. On returning your key at the end of the season, a refund of $10 will be given. All children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult as per school policy.
Coroglen School T-Shirts
We still have a lot of school T-shirts to be returned. Please get them back to the school as soon as you can.
Thank you to the parents who have paid their Lawns fees. Our bank account details are Coroglen School BOT 03-1578-0036880-00 for parents who would like to internet bank their lawns fees.
Please remember to check your children’s hair as we have had another outbreak in the school. School policy is to keep your child/ren at home until treatment is finished.
End of year Performance
The Coroglen Hall has been booked for Friday 11th December for our end of year performance. Could the children assemble at the hall by 6.15pm. Performance starts at 6.30pm. Please bring a plate of food for supper after the performance/prize giving and drop off to the hall kitchen.
We will be having our Picnic Day on Tuesday 15th December at The 309 Waterhole meeting at 10am. It is situated 2.5 kms up The 309 Rd on the left hand side and has ample parking and public toilets. Please bring plenty of food and drinks as there are no shops to buy refreshments. It is a nice and safe spot for the little kiddies with grass and plenty of shade. There is also a spot for the bigger kids to play. All children must be supervised.

Senior room Rotorua trip
Last week’s trip to Rotorua was full on from the time they arrived to the time they left with all kinds of exciting, educational and fun activities. From Wingspan- seeing big birds of prey up close and getting to hold them and watch them in action, climbing a mountain, descending into the crater down a scree slope then having to climb back out again to, fun on the rock wall, walking around the blue and green lakes, also walking the Waimangu Volcanic Valley and a boat ride around Lake Rotomahana and the Mitai Concert experience and hangi plus amazing springs. Also the Buried Village, Rainbow Springs and the Big Splash, The Gondolas and Luge. It was jammed packed and well worth the money!
Thank you to Ms Upsall and all the parents and students who made this year’s Rotorua Camp the best ever!
Have a wonderful week, Penny & the team
