Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 3

 In this post:

  • Camp photos
  • Athletic Sports
  • Canterbury Triathlon
  • Sexuality Education

Camp Photos

Today we shared our collection of camp photos with the children on Google Drive. They will be able to access these at home and share them with you. It is important that they do not share any pictures on their social media accounts unless they have permission from all of the people in the photo. 

We are thinking about producing a photobook with photos and snippets of the children's writing. The cost of these books would be around $25. To give us an indication of who is interested, so we can decide if this is worth doing, please fill in this form.

Whole School Athletics - This Friday the 27th of October

Be Sun Smart

The events for Year 5 to 8 run all day. It is really important that your child has their sun hat and has sunscreen on from the beginning of the day. We will have sunscreen at school for them to reapply throughout the day.


  • Children may choose to wear their house shirt or their red polo. 
  • They may wear their choice of leggings/shorts. Black is prefered. 
  • Please make sure that children come to school in footwear appropriate for sports, (running shoes are ideal). 

Parent Help

We are still looking for parent help for Friday. Please email Jenny if you are available. 

Zone Athletics

Zone athletics will be held at Hansen’s Park on Monday the 9th of November. The children representing our kura are selected based on the results from Friday’s school event. There are restrictions that come from Primary Sport Canterbury on the number of events that children may compete in at zone and Canterbury level. We will be discussing options with children early in the following week.

Canterbury Triathlon

If you think your child would like to enter the Canterbury Triathlon on November 25th, please click here for information and the entry form.

Sexuality Education

Below is a slide show with information about 'Navigating the Journey: Sexuality Education'. We will be starting these lessons next week with Year 7 and Year 8 working in separate groups. If you have any further questions after viewing the slide show, please don't hesitate to contact us.
