Principal’s Message:

Kia ora parents, family and whànau,

A very big thank you to all the people who have helped support our winter sports teams this year. With some codes finishing the season it is great to see the results that the teams are achieving. Big congratulations to three of our netball teams who finished last week winning each of their divisions. Our senior team which was promoted to a higher division earlier in the season still has some games to play.

It was also very pleasing to see the way that a group of our older students represented our school at the “Battle of the Mountain Schools” against Ruapehu College last week in Ohakune. The level of sportsperson ship, attitude and uniform was excellent and they all represented our school with pride and to round off a great day returned home with the Cup. Well done and thank you to all students involved.

As mentioned in the last newsletter the Computers in Homes people will be here today and tomorrow to do a final check on those computers which families already have prior to handing the ownership of them over to families. There is also another opportunity for families to join the scheme. There was a form in the last newsletter or you can get one from the school office if you would like to be considered as a recipient.

Just a reminder that the Board of Trustees has approved that school will be closed for instruction on Friday 24 October. This is the Friday of Labour Weekend. Staff will be at school but will be involved in a variety of workshops relating to PB4L.

Have a great week.

Ngà mihi

Steve Allen
