Hello and Kia ora tatou.
Keeping Ourselves Safe
We would like to thank Fire Officer Shane Bromely who came to school last Thursday and spoke to the children about being Firewise and keeping ourselves safe in the case of a fire.
This was followed up with a visit to the Mercury Bay Fire Station yesterday. All our children were very well behaved as usual. We learnt about the equipment needed by the fire fighters and the training required; everyone climbed into the fire engine and got to experience the force of the fire hose.
Many thanks to the parents who helped transport our children and to Roly Chaney, the Deputy Fire Chief who opened up the fire station for us.
We held a team treasure hunt on Friday to celebrate our 121st Birthday. Each team had to find seven puzzle pieces that when put together read “Coroglen Cool Kids are confident, curious, creative and considerate. They are capeable of caring and co-operating. Coroglen Cool Kids are HEROS
We still have a few problems with headlice around the school. Please check your children’s hair.

Winter Sports is approaching and we are still looking for anyone who can help with hockey and soccer. Please let us know if you can help.
Thank you to Lloyd McQueen for offering to help with Rippa.

We are collecting Milk Bottle Tops to practise playing checkers with and need more green, red or light blue ones if you have any.

New ICT equipment
We have ordered our new ICT devices and have some training lined up for staff. Hopefully we will be using them with students in the very near future.
The Lost Property Box is again overflowing, please check for your child’s clothing and if possible keep things named.
