Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 3

 In this post:

  • Help needed with trips
  • Spikeball
  • Quiz Night
  • Year 7 Leadership 

We need your help

Our trips to Waka on Avon / Art Gallery and Adrenalin Forest / Spencer Park are just two weeks away. As of today, we have had very few parents sign up to help, in fact we have no helpers yet for the town trips. If we do not get enough adult help, some trips may need to be cancelled. Even if you could give half a day, that would help. Grandparents make great helpers too. Please fill in this form if you think you can help.

Waka on Avon and Art Gallery:

  • Caitlin and Jenny's homegroups Wednesday Nov 16
  • Nicky and Megan's homegroups Thursday Nov 17
Adrenaline Forest and Spencer Park

  • Nicky and Megan's homegroups Wednesday Nov 16
  • Caitlin and Jenny's homegroups Thursday Nov 17
Please note that the full day trips will be going ahead on Nov 17, despite the school being closed early this day for staff to attend union meetings. 


This term Spikeball is returning after school on Wednesdays, 3 - 4pm. If you have played Spikeball before or if you have never played before and are keen to learn, then come along! Talk to Dave to find out more. 

Quiz Night

Many thanks to the team who helped with our Quiz Night and to those who purchased tickets. We made $1580 that will help subsidise the cost of our Wainui Camp in term 1 next year.

Year 7 Leadership

This afternoon, we have sent out emails to the children who applied for House Captain, Deputy House Captain, Sports Leader and Student Council Exec for 2023. We had many more students apply than we have positions available and we know there will be a number of disappointed children. There are many more leadership positions that will be allocated at the start of next year. We ask the successful applicatants to take a humble approach when they come to school tomorrow.


We had a superb day for our athletic sports last week and it was fabulous seeing the children have fun and give of their best. Jenny is currently collating results and we will be talking with children to finalise zone entries soon. The Zone Athletics will take place on Monday week, Nov 14th.
