Week 7 - Term 3

What great fun Book Week has been. The children have been ‘immersed’ in books with guest readers, guest speakers, reading in their dressing gowns at school, coming dressed as their favourite book character - just about everything you can think of that has been ‘fun’ with books.
A huge amount of work goes into co-ordinating these things - special thanks to Lynne Handcock, Amy Guerin and Susan Janssen as the organising team.
Sincere thanks to all our guest readers, Sarah S, Susan C and the PTA team who assisted at the Book and Bake sale, and EVERYONE who baked and/or bought baking. We were absolutely delighted with the support you showed with providing yummy baking and pre-loved books.

$1587.00 was raised and this has covered all costs associated with Book Week including the special performance by storyteller Mary Kippenberger. Wow!

Mary not only enthralled the whole school with her performance, but then 40 lucky Ruahine team students were treated to drama workshops for the rest of the day.
