Week 7 Update

Camp Fundraising: It was all go at the Spring Fair on Saturday. Well done to all stall holders, you did a superb job. Those who raised money need to take this to the school office in a named envelope, labelled with 'Spring Fair, Dunedin Camp' and the amount raised. This will be credited towards individual camp accounts. 

We are still selling cookies. Pop in to Room 19, before or after school to replenish supplies.

Bacon order forms will be sent out later this week. This fundraiser is going out school-wide with funds raised going into the general camp fundraising pool. 

If you have prizes to donate to the Quiz night, or you are prepared to help out on the night, please let your child's teacher know. The Quiz night in on Saturday November 2nd.

Speech Success: A huge well done to our 16 speech finalists who presented their speeches to a large audience on Friday afternoon. The standard of both content and presentation was very high. Good luck to Andrew and Ryan who will be taking part in the South Christchurch speech competition on Thursday at 6:30pm at St Martins School. Anyone is welcome to attend this evening, Andrew and Ryan would love your support. 

Drama Group: The drama group will be performing their 'Night at the Museum' piece at the Restart Mall or Canterbury Museum (depending on weather) on Thursday September 26th at 12 noon. If you are in town, they would love your support. 

Ski Countdown: Fingers and toes are crossed for fine and calm weather next Thursday for our ski day. Teachers are matching children up with clothing this week. If this hasn't been sorted for your child by Friday, it would pay to visit Mcewings Snowsports on Yaldhurst road in the weekend, to arrange clothing hire. Their rates are reasonable. Thursday Sept 19 will be a long day, with children at school by 6:45am and returning between 5:30 and 6:00pm. 

Spellathon: Cards should be back at school by now. Testing is on Friday.

Cashmere High Testing is this Thursday. Year 8s need to attend in school uniform. They are to make their own way to and from Cashmere and should return to school during lunchtime.

Whanau Hui: This Thursday from 5:30 - 7:00. Sausage sizzle and movie for the kids, while parents meet.

Disco this Friday: Year 7 & 8 disco goes from 7:30 until 8:30. Please collect your child from inside the hall at the end of the evening.

Technology: In the last week of term 3 technology will be on Friday morning, instead of the usual Tuesday.
