One of our new traditions at school has been to plant a tree over Matariki. The whole school came out in support and 4 of
our students assisted with the planting of a kowhai tree. Our Kapa Haka roopu also performed. Thanks to Mrs Blay and
Mr Masoe for their work in preparation for this occasion.
Last night was also our whānau hui evening - an opportunity for our Māori whānau to come along to school and share
their ideas and aspirations for the tamariki here who are of Māori descent. We thank those of you who were able to
attend and korero with us.
Our PTA meeting is next Wednesday afternoon. We meet in the staffroom and the meeting is finished by 4pm. Do come
along and share your ideas and/or offer to help as possible. Everything the PTA does is to support the children who are at
our school right now.
As an end-of-term treat the PTA will be offering an American Hotdog lunch on the last day of this term (9th July). Order
forms came home earlier this week - orders (with correct money) are due back at school by the 2nd July.
Please only indicate that you wish to pay from your family account if you already have an account set up with us AND it is
currently in CREDIT. Thank you.
Thanks for the great turn-out at last week’s disco. Special thanks to the staff and members of the PTA who
helped with prep and supervision. A great example of good teamwork!

INTER SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY
Congratulations to the entire team that represented our school at the inter school event earlier this week. Every school
sends their very best runners and so achieving well against approximately 120 other great runners is a real challenge.
Our hugest congratulations go to Ella M who placed second in the Year 6 girls event, Oscar H/W who was fifth in the Year
5 boys and Jai P who was eighth in the Year 6 boys. Our Year 6 boys team also finished in 3rd place overall. Stunning
results to each of you.
The frozen cookies are being delivered next Thursday the 10th June. We encourage those with large orders to bring a
chilly bag (or similar) to school with them for pick up.
We would also welcome donations of any clean grocery bags - as we are needing to bag up orders this time around. They
will not arrive individually boxed.
If you are available to help put orders together from 2pm on Thursday 10th June, you will be most welcome.
