Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 8

Many thanks to the parents and high school students who helped us out with Top Team last Monday. The children had a blast; great teamwork, fun and lots of enthusiasm. Check out the pictures at the end of this post.


The opening night of our production, 'Kauri Whānau Musical Mashup', is just a week away. The children are really stepping up, enthusiasm levels are high and it promises to be a highly entertaining show. A reminder that we have two performances, Monday 9th and Wednesday 11th, and we need all children to attend both performances. The show will start at 7pm. Some children will need to be at school early for makeup. More details will be out later in the week.

We are in need of some old business shirts and the loan of a leather jacket (for Grease). If you can help out, please send these along early in the week.

Mural Success

This time last year we were putting the finishing touches on our mural down by the ponds. We entered this work in the Resene Masterpiece Mural Competition. Results came out last week and we were thrilled to hear that we had been awarded third place in the senior schools division!
