Learning • Fun • Friendship
As our children head into their holidays for a well deserved break we can look back on a very exciting ten weeks. The main feature this term was the Middle Syndicate production –The Class Pet. Our students performed brilliantly and showcased their talent. These productions are a particular highlight for me because the preparation and planning involve so many different strengths and skills from all involved. If you were one of the many parents drafted into help; thank you, as you have left endearing memories. Thank you to Yvette Ashby and her team for the many additional hours that they all did to ensure such a success. Next term it is the turn of the Junior and Senior Syndicates. We look forward to more entertainment as we combine the visual and performing arts curriculum.
I hope that you enjoy the photographs captured during the performance and have a great break with your children.
Athon: Thank you for your support of our recent Athon. In total the whole school walked 5350 kilometres and we have raised over $9000 in sponsorship.
Parent-Teacher Conferences Available On Line
Our parent teacher conferences will be on THURSDAY 26TH JULY.

They will run from 2pm until 8.20pm.
These conferences are for 10 minutes each.
School will remain open until 3pm but you may wish to pick your children up from 2pm onwards, from the hall or library.

If you have more that 1 child, or find it difficult to get to school because of work commitments, you should make appointments sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment. However, if you are unable to make this day, please make alternative arrangements with your child's teacher.
If you do not have access to either a computer or an email account, you can either call in at the office between 9.30 and 12.30am each morning and we can book it from there.
Bookings need to be made by Sunday 20th July. After that bookings will be closed and you will have to contact the office to make a time.
Weed Bin: The community weed disposal bin will be on the grass near the pool car park for the next few weeks. This is a place for you to deposit your pest weeds so they can be disposed of securely. Target species are environmental weeds- moth plant, wild ginger, woolly nightshade and more. Only the reproducing parts of the plant (seed heads or pods, flower heads, rhizomes or roots) need to go in the weed bin. The rest of the plant can be left to rot in situ. Pest Free Kaipātiki can offer advice, loan tools or herbicide to help you tackle weeds in your backyard or local reserve; visitwww.pestfreekaipatiki.org.nz for more info.
Yummy Apples: If you shop at New World or Pak n Save please save those stickers and send them to school. Over the last 7 years they have provided us with thousands of dollars of sports equipment.
