Principal's Report

by Sue Cattell

Kia ora whānau. What a start to the week! Just as we were saying goodbye to the Year 6’s as they headed to camp, the deluge of rain descended. Once they left we turned our attention to cleaning up the flooding in the junior block. Our lovely shade sails outside the junior block were torn as the weight of the water pooled and bent the uprights. It was a busy day trying to dry everything, and even now some of the carpet is still damp, but everyone pitched in to help. Insurance will now replace the carpets and the shade sails.

POKEMON CARDS

by Sara Baker

Please do not bring these to school for the remainder of Term 1. Due to ongoing issues with students bringing Pokemon cards to school, we would like these not to be brought into school for the remainder of Term 1. Whilst many students enjoy looking at and trading these cards, there have been issues occurring with missing cards etc. We will review this decision for Term 2, but please ensure your children do not bring their cards to school for the last three weeks of this term.

New Jobs Maybe?

by Paula Snowball

What a morning Monday was! Trees down, shade sails torn, drains blocked and buildings flooded. The bottom floor of the junior block ended up in ankle deep water! Thankfully we had some hardworking, caring, cleaning champions come to the rescue. Not part of their job description but nonetheless, they dropped what they were doing, grabbed a mop or a vacuum and got to work. A big thanks to Sam, Mrs Cattell and Mrs Hewitt for helping clean up our school. Ka pai tō mahi, great job!
