To Samantha Toworai  for your efforts in  the garden.
There are still more weeds needing to be pulled if you have the time. Or want to get a bit of exercise moving mulch! J

Behaviour on the Bus

Unfortunately there has been some unacceptable behaviour from some children on the bus. Please remind your children that travelling on the bus is a privilege not a right. They must remain in their allocated seat, talk quietly only to the person beside them and not be eating or drinking. They must comply with any instructions given to them by the bus monitors or the driver. Any further behaviour which is deemed unsafe will result in that child being excluded from the bus. A seating plan will be coming home to families who use the buses, for your reference.

Coroglen School Past pupils brag:

Tyrese Melde is one of only four children from the Thames Valley area to be selected to go to Melbourne for a Basketball Training Camp in November. Well done!

Lily Hare has just been named on the Massey University Pro Vice-Chancellor's Merit List for 2015, which recognises a first class pass, excellence in undergraduate study!

Congratulations to you both on these excellent achievements.

Phone tree alteration:
The number listed for Steven Hales is actually Sharon’s alternative number. Steve’s number is 021 295 3870

Bridge Hold-up Fundraising
If you would like to be a bandit on the bridge this year (Scallop Fest Weekend 9th September). . .

And if you can help with Pet Day organisation, contact Jessie Lockhart for details.

Be aware, our neighbouring orchard will be spraying this weekend. Any residue should be gone by Monday.
