Newsletter, Term 2, Wk 1

Hello / Kia Ora

Welcome back to Term 2. We hope you all had a great break and are re-energized for a fun exciting term 2.
We have attached a teachers’ timetable so you will know who is teaching your child throughout the day. This is only for term 2, and will be reviewed next term.
On the back of this is the calendar for term 2. Please remember to fill in new events as they come through the newsletter.

Beach Trip
The junior room children are all looking forward to our beach/foreshore study at Kuaotunu Beach. We have enough transport for the children,thank you parents, however if you would like to come along, please feel free to.
We will be leaving the school just after 9am, and will be back in time for the afternoon bus. Please make sure to bring suitable clothing including covered sneakers, a hat, packed lunch and large bottle of water, asthma inhalers (if required) and sun block.

During the term, our children will be skipping for fitness in preparation for the Winter Sports in July and the Jump Rope for Heart later this term. Date is still to be confirmed for the Jump Rope for Heart. Suitable footwear is a must, so if they have sneakers these will be ideal for both skipping and court hockey.

Winter Sports
Winter Sports will be held at Whenuakite School on Tuesday 5th July. We have begun training for this. Any volunteer parents who are able to come down and teach our children Court Hockey, Soccer or Rippa please let us know. Thank you to Kerrie Macdonald who has already put her hand up for the Netball training.

Lucky Book Club
Attached is the new Lucky Bok Club brochure. These are due back by Wednesday 11th May.

Celebrating 120 years of schooling
The school was opened on 20th May 1896, so to celebrate the actual day of our anniversary, we are having a tabloid sports afternoon on Friday 20th May from 1.30pm. This is open to the community to attend and participate if you would like to. We will also be doing a few events throughout the year in celebration of 120 years of schooling at Coroglen.

Fundraiser for Coroglen School
We are hosting a fundraising shopping week at school this week with World Organic products available to view and purchase in the staff room.  World Organic supply organic skin care and make up. We are also running a Mothers’ Day raffle with a cute gift pack of organic skincare and make up. Tickets are $2 for one or $5 for three available at Coroglen School and the Coroglen Tavern. The raffle will be drawn on Mothers’ Day at the Tavern. Winner will be notified.

Free Ear Clinic
If your child needs glue ear assessment and management, wax or foreign body removal, grommet checks or treatment of discharging ears the free ear clinic service for children will be in Whitianga on Friday 24th June this term from 8.30am to 12.30pm in the town centre car park. For enquiries regarding this service you can contact Hamilton District Health Board on 07 838 3565.

Team Energize
We have attached an interesting fridge magnet from Project Energize on how to read food labels. This breaks it down to make it easier to know how to read food labels to help us to make the right choices.
Yummy Stickers
We are still collecting Yummy Stickers from apples. New Yummy Sticker sheets will come home next week. We send these off at the end of term 3 and are rewarded with new sports gear for our school.
