Kōwhai News Week 6 Term 4

 Kia ora whānau, 

Today we had our second house games of the year, which the students were very excited about! We will also have house games next week on Friday as well. 

We have a very full last 3 1/2 week of school coming up. 

Noho Kura

We are getting very excited for our upcoming Noho Kura. 

If you have not already filled in the form, please do so now. EVERY parent needs to have filled in this form whether their child is going to attend the kura or not. 

As this is an overnight stay, we will be asking for a contribution of  $15.00 per child for the costs for the night. 

Thank you to all the parents who have volunteered to help during the evening and stay the night. We will have a limited number of parents who stay the night, and will let you know asap who these are. We will also send out a letter next week with jobs for the other parent helpers. Thank you again for your time! 

Here are some details again of our Noho Kura:

Please collect your child after school, and bring them back to school at 5:30 p.m.

Children won’t need a change of clothes - when they get up on Saturday morning they can put their Friday clothes back on.

What to bring:

  • Pyjamas
  • Slippers or socks
  • Sleeping bag and/or duvet
  • Pillow
  • Teddy bear, cuddly or favourite soft toy
  • Facecloth, hairbrush/comb
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Something to sleep on (a small mattress/camping bed etc)
  • own drink bottle 

If any parents would like to offer some baking for the students for supper time, please let your child’s homeroom teacher know. 

We understand that many children have sports on Saturday morning - so if your child needs to be picked up earlier than 9am please let your homeroom teacher know. If you have already written this in the comments section of the form that is fine.  

Rāpaki Marae Trip 

Rowe, Tracey and Nick’s homegroups still require parent volunteers for the trip to Rāpaki Marae on the 30th November/1st December. If you have never been on a marae, this is a unique opportunity to experience and gain some insight into our bi-cultural heritage. Please contact the teachers directly if you are able to assist. 


We hope you have a lovely weekend
The Kōwhai Team - Laura, Nick, Tracey and Rowe
