Pak'n Save receipts
We desperately need your Pak'n Save receipts so that we can buy more supplies for Te Manawa as they are starting to run low. Just bring them to the office.
School photos will be taken on Friday 30 June. All envelopes that were sent home last week need to be returned to the school office before Thursday 29 June with money inside. Sibling envelopes are available from the school office.
Our electives programme is coming to an end with the final elective this Friday. Next Friday 23 June, at 11am we are having a special sharing assembly where each group will do a short presentation on what they have been working on. We thank all those parents who have helped make electives a success from those that went on our trip to Zealandia or to the supermarket to David Shepherd, Jenni Cronin Stone, and Vicky Webb who took time out to share their talents with our tamariki. Also to Hayley Collins and Casey George who helped Whaea Nadia with the poi making.
