Kauri Whanau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 9

Waltham Pool tomorrow, Wednesday:

We have checked the raindrop graph on MetService often today. It looks like the rain, if it comes, will settle in around midday. Our plan is to be at Waltham by 11am, for a 45 - 60 minute swim, before walking back to school for the afternoon. Can you please make sure your child has the following packed for tomorrow:
  • A raincoat
  • Togs and towel in a plastic bag
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunhat
  • Lunch and water bottle. No lunch orders please, just in case the forecast changes and we stay for longer.
  • Medication if needed, e.g. asthma and hay fever

Year 8:

We had a lovely time with the Year 8s on Monday evening at the pool and pizza party. Excitement is building rapidly as they approach their final day on Monday. Many thanks for replying to the graduation assembly invitation. The hall will be open soon after 10:30am on Monday, ready for an 11:00am start.

The message below was in the daily notices today. Please encourage / support your child to sort out their google drive.

If you are leaving Beckenham School at the end of the year and want to keep any of your school Drive files or emails, please go to the website below before the end of the term. This website will ensure that all files are properly copied to your personal account. If you are under 13, ask your parents to create an account for you using Google Family Link.


Your Beckenham accounts will be permanently deactivated over the holidays so if you don't use the transfer tool, your files will be lost forever.

Walk up to Victoria Park on Thursday:

At the last minute we have had a parent let us know they are unavailable to join us on the walk up  to Victoria Park on Thursday. We are hoping that someone will be able to step in at the last moment. Please email me if you can help. nicky.dunlop@beckenham.school.nz. All children will need the following on Thursday:

  • Day pack
  • Hearty lunch
  • Large bottle filled with water
  • Sunhat
  • Sunscreen
  • Rain coat
  • Mufti suitable for walking, including sturdy shoes
  • Medication if needed, e.g. asthma and hay fever
We leave school soon after 10:30 and will return by 3:00pm.

The children will be bringing their school books home on Friday.

It was pretty cosy in Jarred's pool on Monday.

Fun at the pool party.
