Kauri Whānau Weekly Update: Term 4 Week 3

We are feeling very proud of our Year 7 & 8s today, after an awesome afternoon of House Games. They really stepped up with their organisation, leadership and support of each other. 

Top Team: 

One of the highlights of term 4 in Year 7 & 8 is our annual Top Team afternoon. For those who can remember that far back back, this is run along the lines of the Top Town competition we watched on TV a long time ago. In order the run the afternoon, we need parents to help. If you are available on the afternoon of Thursday November 16, from 1:15 until 3pm, please click this link. We need up to 10 helpers, so would really appreciate your help if you are free. 


Congratulations to our Year 7s who have been appointed as house captains and on the student council exec for 2018. We have made these appointments early so that the children can attend 'Be Inspired', a leadership afternoon for Year 7s, in a couple of weeks time.

This week at our team hui we presented bronze and silver leadership awards. Next Friday, Nov 10th, during our afternoon assembly, which starts at 2pm, we will present gold leadership awards to Hannah S, Isaac, Isla, Kennedy and Mitchell. Parents are most welcome to attend this assembly.
