Our grateful thanks to Kim from Fossil Point who came in and worked with the students creating wonderful clay works today. The students really enjoyed the expertise she brought to the classroom. I believe we have some other keen potters in our community. Kim would like to take another lesson and help the children with their sculpting. I know the children will be excited about that. Thanks Kim you're a great contributor to our community sharing your talents with us.
Thank you to all those students and parents who managed to sell raffle tickets in such a short time frame. Gerard Forsyth was a major contributor here selling over $350.00 worth of tickets to his workmates. Well done Gerard! The Baker Boys, Shannon and Hamish also did some great sales along with our Friends of the school team. Alice Henderson who organised it reported that the Friends of the School made over $1300.00 out of ticket sales. Thank you Alice we appreciate the work you put in there.
Please note that next Friday is a Teacher Only Day. School will be closed for instruction on that day. This is the Friday of Queen's Birthday Weekend and we hope that you are able to take full advantage of the four day break.
There is a vomiting bug around at present it is going through Amberley School and Hurunui College. If your children complain of a sore stomach in the morning then it's advisable to keep them home for the day. Send them back to school 24 hours after they have stopped vomiting as a precaution.This will also help alleviate the spread of germs associated with it. Please emphasize sneezing into your elbow and washing your hands before eating.
