Last week was Book Week. We started the week with a visit from the popular New Zealand author of the Dragon Brothers and Dragon Defenders book series, James Russell. Mr Russell gave a talk to both the junior and senior teams then very kindly ran two writing workshops with some of our keen writers. We would like to acknowledge his donation of two of his books to our school library - these are proving very popular, so it was great to get extra copies. Thank you to the Room Totara display team (Mya, Farah, Jade and Melissa) who set up the library with a dragon-themed display in anticipation of Mr Russell’s visit. We finished the week with a fancy dress day - dress as your favourite book...
A fun event for children and families to raise funds for food for children in sub-Saharan Africa. Children aged 8-13 years can do a maximum of 20 hours of no eating or could choose to do 20+ hours without something else (that would be hard to do without) to raise money. There are ideas on the World Vision FAQs page here. Children under 8 years can also participate by doing a different challenge, for example no furniture, no-TV, or the no-talking challenge. This year we will again be doing the Famine online.
Sport BOP are offering a Coaching for Character workshop for coaches, athletes, parents and managers.
Dear Kaharoa Whanau, This is a quick notification about an upcoming harvesting operation in the Kaharoa Forest along Kaharoa Road. Attached is a letter outlining the details, however, the dates had changed slightly and the operation will only start tomorrow, Tuesday 11 May (to last around one month), with increased truck traffic to start next week. I have been assured that the contractors will do their best to avoid truck traffic during our ‘rush hours’ between 8-9am and 2.30-3.30pm.
