Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 6

 In this post:

  • Bubble wrap needed
  • Top Team
  • Leavers' Graduation Assembly
  • 2021 leaders
  • BYOD

Bubble Wrap

We are in need of a supply of bubble wrap for felting projects. If you have a supply that you don't need at home, please send it to school tomorrow.

Top Team

Next Tuesday, November 24th, we have Sport Canterbury coming to school to run our annual Top Team competition. This is a fun-filled afternoon that focuses on our values of 'we get there together' and 'we love challenge'. Some of the activities involve water, so all children need to come prepared with:
  • swimming togs (best to come to school with these on under their uniform if possible)
  • a rash top, quick-dry t-shirt or thermal top (depending on the weather)
  • towel
  • bag for wet clothes
  • sunhat

Leavers' Graduation Assembly

Many thanks to the parents who have already responded to the graduation invitation. We have had a few questions about numbers. Due to the size of the hall, we have a limited capacity. Last year Koru and Kahiketea teams did not attend in order to free up more space. We will do this again this year. If your Year 8 has a younger sibling (Year 0-2) who would like to attend, you will need to collect them from their hub and they will sit with you for this assembly. Please let us know via email, or in the comments section on the RSVP if you would like to have more than 2 adults from your whānau at this graduation. If you have yet to reply to this invitation, please click here.

2021 Leaders

We have recently appointed House Captains, Deputy House Captains and Student Council Executive for 2021. Last week the House Captains and Council Exec attended the 'Be Inspired' leadership afternoon at Christ's College. They had a great time, learnt more about themselves as leaders and were inspired by a presentation from Sam Johnson.

We have had a few issues with device supply lately because some children who have BYOD are not bringing them to school. Please remind your child to bring their charged device to school every day.
