TERM 2 WEEK 5 by keara


									TERM 3 WEEK 9 Greetings from the Principal’s Chair
The Arts Festival last week ended spectacularly with the Albany schools Kapa Haka group. 80 of their children came to entertain us with a very professional presentation. They have 120 in their group but left the year 1 and 2’s behind!!!! They sang, used poi and Rakau, performed action songs and an amazing Haka. This performance was enjoyed hugely by the children and the staff. A big thank you to Albany for this great performance. Year 5/6 Soccer A girls’ team and a boys’ team competed in the year 5/6 soccer tournament at Victor Eaves park Orewa, on Wednesday. The children, of course, behaved amazingly well and showed great sportsmanship, especially James Scott who went along in case we had an injury and who, although he got no field time, supported the teams well. We had an amazing group of parents to support the teams and a very special thanks goes to Steve Clemow and Tracey Rollitt who took the teams out for us with no teacher support. The girls placed 3rd and the boys 2nd. The play off for the boys was an extremely tight game and the ball was down at Red Beach goal for the majority of the game but we just could not score. We must have had about 6 tries at it. They had an extremely strong keeper but our boys kept trying right up to the last minute. Fabulous game. It was great to see all children wearing full uniform when going out to represent our school. Exceptional Behaviour Award It has come to my notice that Mathias Pridham has shown the caring and kind behaviour we would like to see in all children. When one of his friends was crying and distressed in the sick bay he stayed with him and tried to be calming and kind. Wonderful for a 7 year old. Well done Mathias. Uniform It is great to see so many children wearing the correct tops and trousers/shorts. I realise there was a big problem with supply and demand of the sweatshirts last holidays but Postie Plus has assured me they are fully stocked for these holidays so we will be very pleased to see all children in the correct sweatshirts next term. Don’t forget HATS are compulsory next term. Brimmed school hats are available from Postie Plus too, these are the safest protection from the sun. Thanks to all the children (or parents) who have removed items of jewellery Julie Atkinson Acting Principal SCHOOL COOKIES A big thank you to all families that supported the cookie fundraiser, and yes I am still chasing a few for money. Special thanks to Joseph Kelsall and family who took the remaining cookies. Please remember only money to come back now. Nicholle Kendall 09-4481158 19 21 8 13 15 18 19 22 23

URGENT LIBRARY NEWS We have lost 85 books from the Library this year (valued at $650), and 119 overdue - a total missing value of $1750. Can you please search at home to see if you have any Library books that should have been returned. This year the Library did not have a budget to buy books, but a received a welcome donation of $1500 from the PTA . As you can see, the money received from the PTA would not cover the cost of replacing the lost items, let alone buy new books. If your child has lost a library book and you are asked to pay for the cost of a replacement, please consider that the Library has no money to replace the book and that a valuable resource will have been lost to all the other children at the school. Thank-you
