Glenholme School Newsletter
Week 5, Term 2, Thursday 3rd June 2021
We had a wonderful day yesterday with our school cross country event at the Tree Trust. Our first huge thank you goes to Whaea Susan for her amazing organisation of the event and to Matua Andrew for his support setting up the course.
Thank you to the large number of whanau members who volunteered to be marshalls around the course and to those of you who came to support your tamariki in their races.
We also need to thank a small group of our wonderful Young Leaders who volunteered to stay at the event and support the children in Pukehangi Team when they ran in their races and then helped to pack up the equipment.
Last but not least a thank you to our tamariki who all tried hard and participated in the event. We will have a team of 24 going to the interschool Cross Country event on Tuesday 15th June at Whakarewarewa School. In the Newsletter next week we will have the final results for each age group and year level across the school.
Coming up on the 24th June there will be Paid Union Meetings for all teachers who are members of NZEI. These meetings are during the school day. Our teachers will all be able to attend these meetings without disrupting the normal school day for our tamariki.
2021 Cross Country
Congratulations to all our tamariki who participated and competed in our annual School Cross Country yesterday morning! The student’s commitment and enthusiasm was excellent and contributed to the event being a huge success. We had a beautiful morning up at the Tree Trust and it was fantastic to see so many parents and whanau up there supporting and encouraging the tamariki. Those that placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the age groups 8 years - 11 years, will now go on to the Central Cluster Cross Country event (Interschool) on Tuesday 15th June. Those students will receive a notice about this event next week.
Thank you to our wonderful staff who supported the event and our Young Leaders Toakase, Verah, Jessicah, Emily, Stella and Eli for supporting the younger students on the course and helping Matua Andrew pack up at the end. A HUGe thank you to the parent/whanau/Big Brother and Big Sister marshals - Malcolm, Anthalene, Jae-Marie, Pete, Reenalyn, Dhirend, Nadia, Jenny, Andrea, Sarah, Scott, Mike and Becs for their help on the course - they were amazing! And finally another HUGE thank you to Matua Andrew for setting up the course and packing away everything at the end.
