Hello and Kia ora tatou.
Our next BOT meeting is on Monday 22nd May in the school library. All are welcome.
The children enjoyed the “You’ve got the power” anti-bullying show presented by Elgregoe yesterday. The parrots that appeared from nowhere were amazing. Can those children who have not paid their $2 entry please bring it along as soon as possible. Thanks as always to the parents who provided transport and to Mr Marsden and Whenuakite School for inviting us.
The children all received an entry into the 2017 Trustpower Anti-bullying Competition. They just need to design an anti-bullying poster or poem they think could make a difference in their school.
Stationery accounts for last term are attached. Lawns fees are not included on the stationery accounts, but are now payable to the school $30 per child or $60 for a family.
