Strength Goals - completion date

Friday, 16 November 2018 No comments
It would be wonderful if everyone could have their 'Strength Goal's' completed by the end of Week 7 (the 30th of November). Please make a time with Mrs Wood to share these once you are finished. Thank you to all of the parents that are assisting with these at home!

Production Costumes

We are having a dress-rehearsal at school on Thursday (22nd of November) in preparation for our upcoming show at Forsyth Barr Stadium.

Could the children please bring along to school (in a named plastic bag), their plain black tights or leggings (footless), black shorts or trousers. (It would be very helpful if these did not have pictures or stripes on them - thank you!)


These will be returned on the day of the show (29th November). They will be sent home with the children, alongside the t-shirts that we are providing, for the children to wear to the evening performance.

Thank you all for your assistance in collecting this item. Thank you!

CONGRATULATIONS to the King Family. Zander's little sister Adelie has finally arrived, and we were lucky enough to have her come into our classroom for a visit today. She is so tiny! We think that Zander makes an amazing big brother!

Bunny time!

Scarlett brought her bunny 'Storm' to school to visit today.


Scarlett also completed an amazing poster with lots of facts about her rabbit. We have put it up in the classroom for you to have a look at. Thank you to Scarlett's mum for bringing Storm in to see us all!

Athletics Rotations

For the last four weeks of Term 3, we have been completing an athletics rotation on Thursday afternoons. This involves each Middle Team class rotating around the different stations, trying each of the events that we will participate in at the upcoming school athletics day. We have been so lucky with the weather - no rainy days to stop us giving it a go!
