Week 6 Update

We are in the middle of a rather busy time at the moment! Here are a few quick messages and reminders.

Good luck to the Slow Pitch and Kiwi Tag teams who are representing Beckenham at the summer tournament tomorrow, Wednesday Nov 20th. Those not taking part are to bring togs; we are going to have a free swim.

On Thursday we have a small group of talented writers going to the South Learning Centre for the 'Speed Date an Author' course.

Year 8 children brought home a notice today about the Leavers' Dinner on Dec 6th. This has a reply slip that needs to be returned along with money.

Bacon fundraiser order forms went home last week. If you haven't seen one, there are spare copies in Room 19. Get your order in by next Friday, Nov 29th. This is another fund raising venture for the Dunedin camp next year.

There are a small number of Year 8s who are still to return their profile for the Leaver's Yearbook. This will be finished and ordered by this Friday. Please ask your Year 8 if they have got themselves organised!

Ali Baba: This is the biggie. Excitement is building as we approach performance week. Next week we will have rehearsals every day, with the dress rehearsal for the school on Friday. We will be giving three performances; a matinee on Monday Dec 2nd for Thorrington and St Peters Schools, and two evening performances, Tuesday Dec 3rd and Thursday Dec 5th. Performances involve ALL Year 7 & 8 students. A notice with important details is coming home later this week.

Backdrop for Ali Baba under construction.

Another couple of horses come to life, to add to the herd.
