The order form for cheese rolls is now fixed. Please click here to order your cheese rolls. A paper form is coming home this week, if you would like to use this instead.
In this post:
- Cheese rolls fundraiser
- School-Based Vaccination Programme
- Science fun
- Passion Friday
We are underway with our first fundraiser to help fund the fabulous week we experienced in Wainui. All the details about our cheese roll fundraiser are on this order form. We would love it if you could collect orders beyond your family. These tasty treats usually sell very easily, so please ask your work colleagues, extended family, friends and neighbours if they would like some. We will also send home a paper order form with space to collect multiple orders on the back if that works better for your family.
School-Based Vaccination Programme (SBVP)
Earlier this term Year 8 children brought home a pack about the School Based Vaccination Programme (SBVP). If you are yet to return your form, please get this in on Monday.
On Thursday last week, each home-group enjoyed a session at the Science Roadshow. We learnt about the molecular structure of carbon, including constructing a clever model, and were wowed by the science of forces.
Passions on Friday

Kia ora koutouToday you might have noticed the Pride flag flying from our flagpole. In the same way that we fly flags of different nationalities to celebrate and welcome the wide range of diverse cultures we have within our school community, we also fly the Pride flag to celebrate and welcome all of those families who identify in any way as part of the rainbow community.

- made scrumptious porridge mini muffins.
Kia ora whānau,
We are very excited about our upcoming trip to Ferrymead Heritage Park on the 23rd and 24th of March. This trip links strongly to our theme of ‘Change’ and the main focus will be on heritage life and development/change over time.
The following homegroups will be visiting on these days:
Tuesday 23rd March - Nick and Meagan’s homegroups
Wednesday 24th March - Laura, Rowe and Quynh’s homegroups
On each trip, our tamariki will be divided into four groups and participate in the following workshops:
- Heritage school
- Picnic games
- Heritage accommodation
We will also go on the tram, have a tour around the village and dress up in old fashioned clothing.
On the day of the trip, your child/children will need to:
- Be at school by 8:45am
- Bring a filling morning tea and lunch in their lunchbox
- Bring a full water bottle
- Have sunblock applied before arriving
- Ensure their sunhat is at school (if unsure, send a spare)
- Bring a light waterproof layer if it appears overcast
- Wear comfortable shoes
We will need approximately 2-3 whānau helpers for each homegroup. This will involve helping to oversee small groups of learners, supporting food breaks and joining in with activities.
Please make contact asap with your child’s home group teacher if you are able to help us on the day.
Unfortunately, there are limited numbers of helpers, so if you miss out this time there will be more opportunities later in the year to help. For health and safety reasons we are unable to accommodate siblings/preschoolers. We do have some room for whānau who need to come with us on the bus, otherwise there is ample parking at Ferrymead.
We will be in contact with those parents who will be coming along next week.
The cost of this trip is covered by your school contribution.
