Week 7 Update

Week 7! Hard to believe, but we have three and a half weeks left of this term. Here are some important messages for this week.

Korfball: A huge well done to our korfball team who came third in the Christchurch competition at Cowles Stadium on Monday. They did so well, only losing one game. A special congratulations to Jaxon, who was named in the tournament team.

World Vision Famine: It was great to hear about the children's experiences of doing the 20 or 40 hour famine over the weekend. Please encourage your child to collect in their sponsorship money as quickly as possible.

Science: We are in the midst of science fair projects. By now your child should have their question sorted, research underway and maybe a hypothesis written. We are focusing on the paperwork and research at school, while the actual experiment needs to be undertaken at home. If your child needs equipment such as test tubes, beakers, thermometers, wires etc, they need to e-mail their home-group teacher, so these can be sorted.  The children need to take lots of photos of their experiment at different stages and save these photos in their google drive, so they can access them at school. Many thanks to those of you who are supporting your child with their learning at home. Experiments should be happening this week and next.  Note that the experiment may need to be repeated several times to get reliable data.

Showcase: Our Showcase evening is just over two weeks away on Thursday June 30th. The choir, Te Whanau Mahi Tahi, the drama passion group and some band musicians will be performing that evening. All children and their families are welcome to attend. 

Passion Friday Foodies: If your child is in this group, they should have consulted with you about the ingredients they need to bring to make their dessert this Friday. 

Creating gourmet pizzas last Friday.
