School News

3 Way Conferences
Teacher/Parent/Child conferences will be held on Tuesday 1st April from 1.30 to 6.30. School will close at 1.00 that day and there will be no afternoon bus running that day.

No College Buses on Friday
The only school bus running this Friday 21st March will be our school bus. The Mahurangi Christian School Bus will leave from Mahurangi College in the morning and return to The Warkworth Library in the afternoon.

Writing at Home
Research shows that the most confident writers are those who write at home. We want to encourage our learners to be writing at home in real life situations. To do this we need your help.  We will be asking some parents to  come to assembly with their children to inspire the other children about how they have been using writing purposefully at home, eg writing letters, lists, thank you notes, invitations (you will have your own ideas). If you are able to pop in to assembly and share for a minute or two with your child what he or she has done at home, it will encourage the whole school. Please let us know.

How Can You Help Build a Strong Community For Your Child?
Thanks to those people who have offered their time and thoughts so far on our survey.
Please can you complete the survey below if you have not already?

Due to the wonderful support of a number of people in the community whose children do not attend the school, the Board of Trustees, the Board of Proprietors and members of the Snells Beach Baptist Church, we are delighted to report that we have a number of children sponsored or part sponsored, and that there is now more funding available. Thank you to those generous individuals and groups. Please spread the news that scholarships and part sponsorships are available at MCS.

Vision and Hearing Testing
The vision and hearing technician will be visiting us on the 17th April. She will be testing:
·         New entrants who have not had a B4 School hearing & vision test
·         Children who are new to the school who have not been tested in New Zealand
Children do not need to be tested if they have completed the B4 School Check Hearing and Vision Tests.

Please check your child for headlice as we have had reports of infestations since camp.

As we all know headlice are hard to control, but we as a small community are in a position to do it. Let’s make Tuesdays check for headlice day. If we all check and treat we can beat this thing.
