Kōwhai News Term 4 Week 4

 Kia ora whānau, 

We have had a wonderful two weeks of learning Swimsafe skills at Pioneer Pools. The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning new skills, and it has been great to watch their confidence in the water grow. Thanks again to those parents who have helped us over these last two weeks. 

Marae Visit and Sleepover - update and slight change of plans

We are still planning on visiting the Rapaki Marae on 30th of November and 1st of December during the day. Due to a variety of factors out of our control, the sleepover part of the marae will no longer go ahead. 

We know that many of the children were looking forward to the sleepover part of our marae visit so we have decided instead to have a Noho Kura (sleepover at school) on the night of Friday the 4th of December. This will involve the Year 3 and 4 students spending the night at school, having a BBQ dinner here and sleeping either in the hall or in our hubs. We will have breakfast the next day and your children will be ready to pick up by 9.30 in the morning. 

We will be needing  parent volunteers to help us cook a BBQ and organise dinner on the night and will send out more information about the organisation around the Noho Kura in the next week. 

Kete Awards
Our kete awards from last week went to Chavi, Korell, Vincent and Harshit.  Well done for showing our school values in many different ways. 

Athletics Day 
We are still deciding on a day for Junior Athletics to happen. We will let you know next week when this will be. 

Have a lovely weekend!
The Kōwhai Team
