Leadership Week:
A few pics from an amazing week. The team had a large amount of positive feedback from staff for our wonderful Year 7 students who organised and ran activities with our younger tamariki. The Year 8 leadership days and over night stay were a huge success and it was great to see everyone working together and having tons of fun!

Cheese Rolls:
Cheese Roll Fundraiser
We hope to get heaps of cheese roll orders to enable us to plan some outdoor education days.  

Many thanks to the 6 people who have offered to help with this fundraiser so far. This help ranges from supplying equipment to ordering supplies to helping out on the day. We need more people on board, so please fill in this form if you can help.

Watch out for the order forms which will be coming home in a few days. Please cast your net wide when seeking orders. Workplaces have been a great place to sell in the past.

Our focus for Inquiry this year is identity, with our overarching statement being: "Whakapapa shapes identity which can build confidence and awareness of uniqueness. "
This term we are focussing on self identity. We have been looking at the meaning of identity, and how our character traits and experiences all make up who we are. We have also tied this theme into our unpacking of Leadership.
If you or someone you know would be keen to come and chat to our tamariki about your job, your experiences, or any ways you show leadership. Or if you have interesting stories that have shaped your identity please get in touch with your child's homegroup teacher. We would love to have you involved!

Walk and Wheel to School:
Next week is Walk or Wheel to School week. If students walk or wheel to school 3 mornings or more during the week they will go in the draw to win spot prizes. Cards have been handed out to students today and will need to be given to homegroup teachers next Friday morning.

School Swimming Sports:
What a fabulous event! It was awesome to see everyone representing our school with pride and making the most of the oppurtunity. Congratulations to student's in Heathcote who won the relay and therefore win the school cup!
