Thank you so much to everyone who attended our prize giving on Monday evening. The weather was ideal, the ‘live
performances’ were superb and it was lovely to be able to recognise so many of our pupils.
We are very aware that some children have to manage disappointment if they don’t receive the roles they had their
heart set on -congratulations on being able to show resilience and please know that there will be other leadership
responsibilities coming up next year.

Thank you so much for your generosity with “Pack the Bus’ items provided for our mufti day earlier this week. We
were genuinely gob-smacked with the amazing gifts and food items that were donated to support local families who
are in need over the coming weeks. This is one of the many things that our school community does REALLY well -
help out others in their time of need - what a fantastic community minded spirit, especially at this time of the year.

Congratulations to Mrs Flaus and her Jump Jam team that performed so well last weekend at the National
competition in Tauranga. I have had several parents (who attended) pay compliments to the team performance and
Mrs Flaus was also very proud of each of you. Tino pai to mahi!
Our rippa rugby team also performed really well in the inter-school tournament on Tuesday. Well done to each of
you and special thanks to Mr Hawkins, Mr Hodge and Angus Gifford Moore for supporting the team.

It has been lovely to see so many of you here at school supporting your children by watching either their
fundamental skills lesson or the athletic sports over recent weeks.
OAK TREE REMOVAL
Sadly, one of our beautiful large oak trees is needing to be removed in the coming days. We have been monitoring a
decaying section in the trunk and have recently seen this area increase significantly. We have had our arborist look at
the tree, and he has recommended it be removed before it becomes a health and safety issue. Many, many children
have played in this tree, over many years - we will be very sad to see it gone.
