Entries for August 2019


Term 3, Week 4 - 2019

Our HUGE congratulations to the 8 students who represented our school at last week’s Mathex competition.
Our year 6 team of Silas, Mila, Leejun and Jonny were placed 5th = (with the 4th highest score). There were 44 teams entered in this level – wow!!

Our year 5 team of Daisy, Milla, Charlie and Wairehu were 2nd = in their competition. They were only 1 point behind the winning team – wow again!

Fantastic results for both teams – to finish in the top 5 teams is quite outstanding, as the competition is very tough!

Term 3, Week 3 - 2019

At the end of this term, we will be celebrating Book Week – this a week of fun with lots of different activities associated with books and reading. One of the activities you may like to start thinking about is ‘come dressed as your favourite book character‘ day. Another is our very popular PTA ‘book and bake’ sale where we call for donations of second hand books and a range of baking. The children come to school with $2 and get to choose something yummy for morning tea and a book to take home. If you are having a tidy up of children’s books that your child has outgrown, please consider popping them aside to send to school later in the term.

The proceeds from the book and bake sale subsidises a professional performance for all children to enjoy on another day in book week!
