Yo presenting our speech prize winners - 1st Maggie, 2nd Sylvia, 3rd Charlie

Last week our Year 3-8 children performed their speeches. We were so proud of them all. It is wonderful to see how much their confidence has grown since last year. Public speaking isn’t always easy and I love how every one of them gave it a go and tried their best.

This is our last newsletter of the term, so have a wonderful holiday and thank you so much for all of your support this term. Enjoy making memories in the holidays.

Kiwisport Day - Thursday 19th September
Here are the transport details for our kiwisport day at Scargill Domain. I will put a message on Facebook before school if this is cancelled.

We are a finalist in the 2019 MainPower Community Fund! We could receive a share of the $30,000 fund. We really need you to vote for us. As a small school it would be awesome if you could share this around with your family and friends so we can get as many people as we can to vote.

Term 4 Raffle
Please can you send in your raffle prize by the end of term 3. We ask for one per family, of a value of at least $10.

Farmlands are having a birthday celebration on Friday 11th October and they have asked us if we would like to join them to sell raffles at their shop between 10-2pm. I am away that day so I’m not able to be there, but please let me know if your child would like to be a part of this. If we have enough they could do one hour shifts. They are going to donate some prizes to our raffle as well.

Working bee
Thanks so much for the support of our working bee. Please let me know when you want to do the job, so I can make sure we have everything ready for you.

Dental Van
A reminder that the dental van will be at school this Friday, 20th September.

Linc ed
All Year 3-8 speeches and kapahaka performance are now on Linc ed. You can login like you did with reports to see it, or click on the link from the email that comes to you from Linc ed. I will add Paemoana’s in week 10.

Celebration of Learning
As our children have just shared their learning with you at our 3 way learning conferences and speeches, we have decided not to have our celebration of learning on Friday. We will give out extra certificates at our next assembly in term 4.
