Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 9

 In this post:

  • Wainui Camp 2021

Photo Orders

Last week order forms were sent home for special group photos: house captains and deputies, student council, school ambassadors and Te Whānau Mahi Tahi. As some order forms didn't head home until Thursday - we have arranged to extend the cut off date for orders until 9am on Monday. If you are yet to order a photo, please get the form and money to the box in the office first thing on Monday.

Camp Photo Books

The camp photo books are due to arrive on Wednesday, December 16th. Sometimes they arrive earlier than the date they quote us; fingers are crossed that this will happen. If you missed the deadline and would still like a book, please email Nicky this coming week. A late order can be put in, with books arriving next year.

Wainui Camp 2021

Yes, it feels like we have just got back from one camp and we are talking about another! We are off to Wainui from March 1-5 next year. If you are keen to come along as a parent helper, please click this link and fill in the form.

We have been very impressed with how well your children are maintaining focus on their learning as the end of year approaches. Below are some photos from the last couple of weeks.

There has been a bit of a felting frenzy at school this term. Here we are making felt pods.

Many thanks to the parents who helped out with our Top Team afternoon.

A few days ago six of our ex-students who are now in Year 9 spent a session with our Year 8s, sharing useful 'hacks' for high school.
