Hampers Raffle

The Kauri hub has put together 10 prizes for our hamper raffle. While the raffle will be drawn at our quiz night on Saturday, tickets will be available to the entire school community. Purchase your tickets for $2 each from in front of the school hall on Thursday and Friday, before and after school. Ten draws for $2 is pretty good odds, so be in to win!

Hamper Reminder and Quiz Help

 Kia ora everyone,

Thanks to those who sent in items for our hamper raffle today. We still have over half of the hub to send in a contribution and need these by tomorrow, so please make sure something is in your child's bag.

We are also in need of two more people to help out on the night - this Saturday from 7pm. Please email Nicky if you could join our cheery team.

Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 2 Week 3

 In this post

  • Wrapping up ShowQuest
  • Hamper donations
  • Sport


What a fabulous day we had on Monday at ShowQuest. A huge thanks to all of the parents who supported us during the day. It was fabulous to see, and hear, so many Beckenham whānau in the audience. If you missed the show there are two videos available for viewing which Jenny has shared in the Kauri Google Classroom. Your child will be able to access these from home.  There are heaps of fabulous photos on Facebook that can be found by searching ShowQuest 2021.

If your child borrowed their costume for school, please send this back on Monday.

Quiz Night

We are looking forward to a fabulous quiz night this coming Saturday. Tickets are sold out.

We need every family in our team to donate an item for our hampers that will be raffled at the quiz. Thanks to the 15 families who have sent something to school already. We would love to see another 100 items come to school on Monday. Please grab something at the supermarket over the weekend and put it in your child's bag for Monday. Many thanks!


All the best to our zone cross country team who will be competing on Tuesday morning at Halswell Quarry. Winter sport gets underway in week 5, on Thursday June 3rd. A big thanks to all the parents who will be coaching teams. This programme cannot go ahead without you.

ShowQuest Final Reminders

 On Monday, May 17th, performance day, the children will need to be at school at the usual time. The bus takes us to the Town hall in the morning. We stay there right through until the evening. As soon as we know our performance time, we will send an email out, so those of you not viewing the show know when to collect your child. 

Children will need to bring the following:

  • Their costume (clean and pressed would be fabulous)
  • Any makeup they would like to apply
  • Hair brush / comb. For those with long hair, please bring hair ties and bobby pins. 
  • Lunch and drink bottle.
  • There will be pizza (we have allowed 3 slices per child) and a sweet slice for dinner. You may like to pack extra food, especially if your child does not eat pizza.
  • A small non-electronic game, pack of cards, book, craft work etc - for down time.
  • Phones can be taken for parent communication at the end of the night. We will look after these during the day.
  • They can also bring a rug or cushion to sit on, as we are not sure how comfortable our allocated area will be.

Collection of children:

  • If you are collecting your child after the show we will bring the children down to the foyer and sign them out as they are collected.
  • If you are watching the show, children will be with their homegroup teacher in the foyer at the end of the evening. Please see the teacher to sign out before leaving.
  • If you have any queries, you can call Nicky on 0276229403

Your children are awesome! Prepare to be dazzled!
