Newsletter, Term 1, Week 5

Hello and Kia ora tatou.

Internet Use Contract
Thank you to those children/parents who have returned the Internet Use Contracts. If you have not already done this, can you please return them asap. We have extra forms at the school. Children who have not signed an Internet Use Contract will not be able to use the computers from next Monday.

Bus Users Contract/Agreement
Thank you also to the children who have signed the Bus Users Contract. There are still a few who need to return their signed Agreements. We are confident there will be no issues while our children are travelling on the bus to and from school.

Country Swimming Sports Y4-Y8
A great day, wonderful weather, excellent organisation and fabulous participation and support from all of our students and whanau. Special congratulations to Awa and Riley-Jean, who both placed second in their 25m freestyle finals and Dekota, who also completed 25m freestyle.

BOT Meeting
We had two parents who put their names forward to join the BOT. At the meeting last week the Board decided to Co-opt both of these parents. Welcome Dave Warwood who is taking on the Health & Safety portfolio and welcome back Jacinta O’Donahue who is our Community Consultant and also will be involved with fundraising.

Mercury Bay Day Camp
Registrations are now open and you can pick up a copy from the office. Please get these in early to avoid disappointment. They do not take any late registrations at all.

Seaweek Study
As explained in the special newsletter that came home yesterday our planned trip to Te Whanganui-A-Hei Marine Reserve in Hahei did not happen today due to a lack of transport. We are now planning to take the children on Thursday 9th March as part of our Seaweek study instead. We will be leaving the school by 9.30am returning early afternoon. Please make sure children have a hat, sunscreen, water bottle and a packed lunch for the day.

Children have information about Skoolbo in their homework books. This has their usernames & passwords in so they can access it from home. It helps improve their maths skills and reading skills. It can also be played with friends and siblings.

Head Lice
Remember to keep checking for head lice. Regular brushing helps break their legs. Another natural option is to rinse hair with apple cider vinegar. Longer hair should be tied up at school.

Have a good week, from Jean and the team.
With special thanks to our sponsors:
