Kauri Whanau Weekly Update: Term 4: Week 8

We very much hope you enjoyed seeing the 'Trials of Alice in Wonderland' this week. We know the children have loved sharing the show with you. We are trying to secure one more audience for next week.  See the end of this post for photos.

Year 8 Pool and Pizza Party

All Year 8s are invited to Jarred's place, 244 Opawa Rd, on Monday afternoon (December 11th). The party will get underway at 4pm. Please arrange to collect your child by 6pm. They are welcome to bring their togs for a swim if they would like to.

Waltham Pool Trip

We have our fingers crossed that the current weather forecast for Wednesday, December 12th, will shift and that we will get a fine day to enjoy at the pool. We will be walking down at Waltham Pool late morning and returning by 3pm. Please make sure your child has a packed lunch and bottle of water. They will also need sunscreen, togs and towel and sunhat. If the rain does come, we will look at some alternative school based fun.

Victoria Park Walk

Rain is also forecast for Thursday December 13th, so more finger and toe crossing! We will be heading off on our tramp up to Victoria Park at 10:30. That day children will need the following:

  • day pack
  • hearty lunch
  • large bottle filled with water
  • sunhat
  • sunscreen
  • rain coat
  • mufti suitable for walking, including sturdy shoes

Helpers' Morning Tea and Final School Assembly

We have had so many parents help out at school and on our many trips this year. We would love to see you at our helpers' morning tea on Friday morning, starting at 10:30, in the hall. This will be followed by our final school assembly, that everyone is welcome to attend, at 11:30.

Graduation Assembly

Our Year 8 students will be celebrated at our graduation assembly at 11am on Monday December 18th.  On that day they wear their very best clothing and arrive at school at the usual time. Many thanks to all of the Year 8 parents who have replied to the invitation. If you have yet to do so, please click on this link.
