Cross Country

I don't know if they managed to out-run the rain all day, but they did keep ahead of it long enough to get around the course.
A huge thanks to all the parents who provided transport to and from the races, helped organise the children, and went for the walk around Ross with the children.
A big thanks to Ross School for organising the event, and Kumara School for joining in the fun.

Well done to all the students!  Keep up the good work - staying active and fit will help all you succeed in activities (including reading/writing).

Cross country and newsletter

I see the wrong newsletter has been posted! Oh dear :( I'm away sick today so we'll get a hard copy sent home to the online families. I think the most important bit of information is about cross country -we still need a few more drivers. Leave a message on the answer phone or send a note in for Thursday if you can drive and haven't let us know yet. Sorry about the newsletter. We'll fix it when we're in tomorrow. Ms McLellan

Rippa Rugby

Love Rugby?  Got some spare time?
All year 5 and 6 students will be competing in a Rippa Rugby tournament over 4 Fridays in June.  It would be great if we had a parent or 2 to come down to help coach.  We have all the rules and equipment here at school.
Give us a ring to let us know when you are available, or stop in and we'll get you started.

Kahurangi Dance Theatre

Next Tuesday all students will be heading in to see the Kahurangi Dance Theatre group at Westland High.  We have seen this group in the past and have always had an amasing show!  It is a great way to see how traditional Maori arts can be used to create a dynamic show.
Please make sure you send $5 per child or $10 per family to school to contribute towards the bus / entry fee.  This is also subsidised by REAP and the BOT.

Happy Mothers Day!

Mum's are wonderful creatures! 
A special thanks to all the mum's who support the school, their kids, and all the kids in everything they do. We hope you have time to put your feet up and enjoy a quiet cuppa in between running kids to weekend sport, clubs, feeding the troops, laundry, homework, gardening, dishes, clean ups, nursing, making beds, vacuuming, feeding the pets, making dinner, listening to everyone, running errands.....etc etc - what would we do without you all!?!
Happy Mother's Day

Urgent Notice

Urgent Notice

We have just received notice that the scheduled power outage will include the school. Unfortunately because we rely on power for our water supply we will have to close the school on Friday.
If the work is not completed on Friday the postponement date for the work is Monday 7th May 2012.

So the Mufti Day will now be on Thursday. Please check the expiry dates on the groceries. The raffle organisers are looking for larger, light grocery items (hint, hint – not too many cans pleaseJ)
