Kia ora koutou, thanks to you all for helping to make our first 3 days of water safety lessons a success!
As you can imagine there are a number of logistics involved with planning and implementing this type of activity.
Consequently we have changed the departure from school times and the pick up time (from Pioneer Pool).
If you are a helper for the Year 1 students: please be at the pool to assist with changing by 12.15. Their bus will collect and return them to school at 1.15pm.
If you are a helper for the Year 2 students: please be at the pool to assist with changing at 12.45. Their bus will collect and return them to school at 1.45pm
If you are helping with Year 3 students: please be at the pool to assist with changing at 1.15pm.
Tomorrow (the 30th October) we have our Athletics Day.
The Kōwhai timetable is as follows:
11:00-12:15ish - Athletics rotation of Discus, Relays, Shotput and High Jump.
2:00ish - Sprint finals (Yr 5 up - Kōwhai to watch)
2:40ish - House Relays
Be Sun Smart
The weather tomorrow looks like a sunny day and we will be outside for much of the day. It is really important that your child has their sun hat and has sunscreen on from the beginning of the day. We will have sunscreen at school for them to reapply throughout the day.
Children may choose to wear their house shirt or their red polo.
They may wear their choice of leggings/shorts. Black is preferred.
Please make sure that children come to school in footwear appropriate for sports, (running shoes are ideal).
We are still looking for parent help for Friday. Please email Jenny firstname.lastname@example.org if you are available.
Apologies for the third email this week.
Technology is on Monday, not Tuesday next week. This is due to an exchange at South Intermediate next week. Please make sure your child is at school by 8:30am on Monday so that they can catch the bus to tech.
Athletic sports are on tomorrow:
- sun hats are essential
- come with sunscreen on (more will be applied during the day)
- wear either red school polo or house top
