Week 5 Update...

Congratulations to Sabine Grey who has won the Year 9 Music Scholarship at Cashmere High School for 2014.

Ski Day: Thanks to all who have filled in the form about ski experience and gear (clothing). Half the team have done this, we need the rest ASAP. If you haven't filled in this form, please do it today. There are a lot of people who need to borrow ski pants and goggles (remember sunglasses are fine). We will be able to match some people up with gear, but not all.

McEwings, 200 Yalhurst Rd Christchurch, do special rental deals for schools:

  • Ski jacket $10
  • Ski pants $10
  • Ski goggles $5
If you are able to hire gear from here please let me know and we will take you off the 'need to borrow' list.

We have heard back from Mt Hutt. Children with own gear, pay the same as those who need to rent. The good news is that helmets are included in ski rental.

Dunedin Camp Fundraising: 

  • Thanks to those who supported Room 17s cupcake sale last week. A few children still owe Tracy money.
  • This coming week Room 19 are selling jelly and ice-cream on Wednesday for $2. Purchase tickets before school. This is for Year 5 -8, we will do Year 1-4 the following week. 
  • Cookies are selling really well! With the cookie fundraiser, what you sell goes directly to your own camp fee. Once you have sold your first bag and handed the money into the office (in a named envelope labelled with 'cookies'), you can get more bags to sell. Come to Room 19 before or after school to restock. Every bag sold is $8 towards your camp fee.
Speeches: our team speech competition is on Friday Sept 6th. There will be two Year 7 and two Year 8 speeches from each class in the final. Children have one week to finish writing and practising their speeches. Support from home would be appreciated.

Good luck to our Year 7 & 8 rugby team who will be competing at the Canterbury Winter Tournament on Thursday.

Learning Conferences are coming up soon on September 4th and 5th.
