Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 9

 In the post:

  • Trip reminders
  • Year 8 Pool and Pizza Party
  • Year 7 on Wednesday
  • Nicky away


Corsair Bay, tomorrow

The weather forecast is not looking so rosy for tomorrow. We will make a call in the morning. Children are to come to school in uniform with their togs, towel, jacket, lunch, hat and water bottle in their bag. If the trip is canceled, we will arrange some fun activities in the hub. 

Victoria Park, Monday

The forecast is still showing a sunny ball for Monday. Mufti can be worn for our walk up to Victoria Park. Sturdy shoes are essential. In their daypack, they will need a drink, lunch, sunhat, sunscreen, asthma inhaler (if needed) and a warm jacket. 

Pool Party

On Monday the Year 8s are invited to a pool and pizza party at the Cockfield's house in Cashmere. The best way to get there is to park on Dyers Pass Road by Cashmere Primary and walk through the school, down past the tennis courts. Liz will put a sign by the back gate. The street address is 79 Dyers Pass Road. They have a lovely outdoor pool and spa and also access to the school playground. Drop off is at 4pm and pick up at 6pm sharp.


School finishes for Year 8 after graduation assembly on Tuesday. Year 7 finishes with the rest of the school at 12:40 on Wednesday. Year 7 are invited to bring their togs, towel and a 'water propelling device' on Wednesday. We are planning a water slide and a water fight on the park between interval and lunch. Water bottles make great water propelling devices! 

Nicky away

Sadly, my sister-in-law passed away last night, so I will be finishing at school at lunchtime tomorrow, Friday, to head north to be with Grant's family. Caitlin, who will be teaching in our hub next year, will be in for me. If you have any queries about the final few days, please contact Megan, Jenny or Hannah. 

Wishing you a restful and happy holiday. All the best to our fabulous Year 8s and good luck for the next step on your life's journey.
