School News

Friday Lunch
There will be no lunches for sale this week.

Thank you Mrs Chessum and Mrs Franks for your faithful lunch duty. You deserve a day off.

Poetry, Book Review and Science Evening
Over the past term the senior class have been busy learning poems to recite, investigating a science question that has them curious and unpacking different books. They would like to share these with you on Thursday 3rd July from 5pm - 6:30. From 5- 5:45 the rooms will be open for science and book fair viewings followed by the poetry recitals.

It would be great if all the parents of the senior school could attend.

There will be a sausage sizzle, running for those who would like a little something to eat during this time. Sausages cost $2.

Celebration Assembly
If possible please join us at our Celebration Assembly on Friday 4th July at 9.10. School Values Certificates will be awarded and we will enjoy presentations from some of the children. As usual please stay and enjoy morning tea with us afterwards.

Thank you so much to all our wonderful morning tea workers from Mahurangi Baptist Church. We so appreciate all your effort, refreshing drinks and scrumptious food.

Onboard Skate
Onboard Skate will provide skateboards and instruction for the last Wheels Day of the term (Friday 4th July) for those children who bring $2 to defray expenses. Please send $2 to the class teacher.

New Zoo Date
Mark it on your calendars now our postponed zoo trip will now take place on Wednesday 30th July.

The Seasons Programme at School
Seasons is a peer support programme for children who are missing someone important from their daily life. The loss may be due to the separation of their parents, the death of someone close to them, or other family change.

The groups are small, usually 3 or 4 children of similar age, with 2 trained adults who use a range of activities, stories, artwork and games to encourage the exploration and sharing of experiences. Topics introduced include feelings, telling our stories, memories, change, strengths and resources. Each programme ends with a Celebration.
Asked what they would tell other children about “Seasons”…  “I liked telling what happened in my life” – 9 year old boy. “Its very cool - you learn a lot and it helps you with your problems” – 9 year old girl. “I would tell them join the group!” – 11 year old boy.
Seasons Groups will be running at school again next term. For more information or to enrol your child contact.  Helen Pearson at School or Seasons Co-ordinator, Heather Free ph 021 0813 3586 email
