Week 8 Update

Wild Weather: Many thanks to those of you who came to collect your children from school this morning, as the snow started to come down and settle. Less than a third of the Intermediate Team arrived today and we now have  a very small group enjoying movies and hot milo in Room 17.

Camp 2014: At the BOT meeting this week, approval was given for our proposed school camp to Dunedin next year; April  7 - 11 which is the second to last week of term 1 2014. Our next step is to investigate fundraising possibilities. If you have any great ideas, please let us know. More details soon.

Ski Day: Just to confirm our ski day next term is on Thursday September 19. Tracy Inwood and I are spending an orientation day for school coordinators at Mt Hutt this Sunday, will have more details after that.

Good Luck to our chefs: A big congratulations to Beth, Ella, Lucy and Georgia for getting through to the South Island finals of the Maggi Kitchen Countdown for Intermediate Schools. We wish them all the best for the next stage of the competition next Friday (June 28).

Art Exhibition: All classes are currently busy creating wonderful works of art for the Beckenham School Art Exhibition in the last week of term.We look forward to sharing their creativity with you from July 9 - 11.

Good luck to our cross country team, Jacob, Jack M, Melanie, Briana, Domanic, Naquita, Cougar, Emily and Cameron. These fine runners will be representing Beckenham at the Canterbury Cross Country Competition on Wednesday June 26th at Halswell Quary. Thank you to the parents who have offered to help with transport
