Thank you to everyone who has returned requests for parent and teacher interviews on Thursday, 8 March.
Notices confirming appointment times will come home on Monday.
Late requests for an interview will be considered and arranged as time permits.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible next Thursday.
Our Board of Trustees has decided to stop asking for school donations to help keep schooling costs down.
However, we will be looking for funding from other sources to ensure the resources and facilities available to your children are second to none.
Thank you to whanau who have already offered to pay this year.
We look forward to your support when we have a one big sponsored fundraiser later in the year.
BIBLE IN SCHOOL
This programme is taken by qualified Bible in School teachers on Wednesday mornings from 9am to 9.30am in middle and senior school (Years 3—6) only.
The programme is optional.
If you do not want your child involved please let your child’s teacher know before next Wednesday.
The programme begins on Wednesday, 7 March and runs until Wednesday, 28 November 2018.
You may have noticeD we have changed our cover photographs.
The cover printing and the paper has been done by Newspapers Unlimited who organised the advertising on the back page.
I thank our sponsors for supporting our school.
While the school can not vouch for the products and services advertised, I ask that you consider these people when making choices about their services.
CAN YOU HELP?
I regularly get calls from members of the public about people crossing Hill Road at 3pm.
We insist that children on their own use the pedestrian crossing at the traffic lights.
However, once children have been collected by an adult they are under the control of that adult not school staff.
The police have asked that I recommend that everyone uses the traffic lights as walking across Hill Road is the middle or the traffic is very dangerous at the end of the school day.
Does the school have your current phone number so that we can contact you in an emergency?
Please update any details that have changed for your child at the office.
