Kia ora

Just in case you missed the last notice (it may still be in the school bag or located in a bedroom in the form of a jet plane?);

Each child has been given their black pants and t-shirt(s) to bring home.  They should put these on before coming to the stadium.

Please bring the children in through Gate B (Forsyth Barr Stadium) at 6.30pm. 

They can keep their named jackets with them in case it gets cold.  The children know to come sit with either Mr T or Mrs Wood (I am the bald one and will be closer to the entrance).

The show will end at about 8.20, at which time Dr Galloway will give instructions for the collection of children.

Farewell Mrs Fairbairn

Kia ora

Today we say farewell to Mrs Fairbairn who has now completed her four week posting in Room 17.

It has been awesome having Mrs Fairbairn in Room 17 and we will all miss her very much! A big thank you to Mrs Fairbairn from everyone in Room 17. We wish you all the best for the new year!

The good news for us is that Mrs Fairbairn will still be at George Street Normal School and we can continue to visit with her :-)

The children have been very busy learning dances in preparation for our School Production which will be held at the Forsyth Barr Stadium on Thursday 29th of November. 

The children from Room 17 will be taking part in three dances on the evening so they have a lot to learn between now and the night of the show.

It will be awesome so we hope everyone can come along to watch us on the night.

Athletics Day

We had an awesome time at the Athletics event yesterday.  A huge "Thank you" to everyone who came to support us and/or help out!!


Kia ora

We are starting to see a bit more of the big yellow thing this term already.  However even we we don't see the sun there is a chance that it is causing harm to our skin.

A huge thank you to everyone who has already brought their hat to school.  The teachers will be asking children without hats to remain under the shades during break times.  If children want to play outside they need to be wearing a sunhat.

Please remember put on some sunscreen before school and cover up well on those sunny days.  (Mr T does have a very limited supply of sunscreen for those who forget on occasion).
