Kia ora M4,
Welcome to Week 6. It is another busy week this week!
Monday is our final swimming session at the leisure centre at 11.30am, so can everyone make sure they have togs and towel packed and ready to go. We also have our class library time on monday morning so remember to bring back school library books to be returned or re-issued.
Tuesday we have another cricket session with Ramesh from HBC cricket and at lunchtime the year 5 & 6’s have a Water Fight event on the field during lunchtime. They are able to bring water guns, bottles – anything to squirt people with, but NO water balloons please because of the mess they leave behind. (This will obviously be dependent on the weather)
Thursday is our swimming sports day at the Northern Arena in Silverdale. Buses leave school at 10am and will leave the pools about 1.30pm.
Friday – Passion Fridays start this week in our VLC. For the remainder of this term, our team will be running taster sessions to see what students would like to do for future Passion fridays. These will be run while those students who are enrolled for the Northern Performing Arts groups are doing their chosen activities.
As some students were absent during the week, there will be catch-up PAT testing over the next few days. These will be happening separately to the classroom programme.
This week is the final run-up to our school gala on Sunday that will help us build the new playground for our children. Cake boxes will coming home on Monday and most students have returned their Jolly Jars and items for quick fire raffle prizes. If you are able to help to help out in anyway, please contact Kelsey or myself to let us know – we are on the Nerf Gun stall this year!
I hope you all had a good weekend and are looking forward to an exciting week ahead!
Nga mihi nui,
