Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 6

We have had a twintastic day at school today! Thanks to the parents who supported their children to get their matching outfits together. Check out the photos at the end of this blog.

Between now and the end of term there is lots happening for our students. The events are listed below, along with details and requests for parent help. Please click each link to record if you can help.

Thursday November 30: Carisbrook School sports exchange (morning)

20 children and a crew of parents / teachers will be arriving from Carisbrook School in Dunedin, at 9am, for a morning of sport. The children will play basketball, football and touch. At the end of the morning we will provide them with lunch, before they make their way back to Dunedin. If you are able to help with lunch preparation, please click on this link.

Monday December 4: The Trials of Alice in Wonderland (7pm start for everyone)

Our show is getting to the exciting stage now, with wonderful singing and a hive of creative activity in our hub this afternoon. Opening night is just over a week away! All children are required at both shows. Bring your whānau along for a highly entertaining evening, all for the cost of a mere gold coin. Come along and enjoy the opening night.

Wednesday December 6: Canterbury Athletics

We have a team of eight from Year 7 & 8 travelling to Ashburton for this event. Jenny will be contacting you directly with details.

Thursday December 7: The Trials of Alice in Wonderland (7pm start for everyone)

Our final show will be preceded by a whole school picnic. Families are invited to come to the picnic and carry on to the show afterwards. We could end up with a bumper audience for our final show.

This is a special afternoon for the Year 8s to have fun together. Jarred will be hosting this party at his place. Start time is 4pm and collection time is 6pm. Children are welcome to bring their togs if they would like to swim.

Thursday December 14: Trip to Corsair Bay

We have our fingers and toes crossed for a warm and sunny day on the 14th for our trip to Corsair Bay.  Children again come in mufti and bring their togs and towel. We will have supervised swimming in the bay, games on the beach, a walk around to Cass Bay and chilling with friends. We are looking for parent helpers, both for on the beach and in the water. Please indicate on the form how you would prefer to help. We will be departing from school at 10:30 and will be back by 3pm.

Monday December 18: Leavers' Graduation Assembly

There will be an invitation sent out to Year 8 families next week for this event. Children come to school at the usual time, dressed in their best clothes. The assembly starts at 11am and generally runs for around 80 - 90 minutes. After the assembly there will be a luncheon provided by the PTA for Year 8 children and their parents. After the lunch, primary/intermediate school is all done and dusted for the Year 8s. Year 7 continue until 12:30 on the following day.

A reminder that home learning this week is finishing off information reports and presenting these. All instructions are on google classroom. Children are welcome to come to school early, or stay after school if they need access to the internet. Work is due to be completed by Friday.

Fun at our multiples day...
