Shelly Park School - Wednesday 2 November 2022


Dear Parents and Whānau

Fun Fest

The Fun Fest is now just around the corner. NOVEMBER 13 - 10am - 2pm, this will be such a great event. I know there have been a large number of parents involved in making sure this is one of the highlights of the year.

Although we have had a huge uptake with helping out for the day, there are still a few positions required to relieve the pressure on some of the zones. If you can, or you know someone who can volunteer an hour of their time please complete the Google Form provided here

Board of Trustees Quiz Night -ROYALTY- Save the date

Get excited, the Board has decided on a date and the legendary Board Quiz Night is confirmed. Please save Saturday 26th of November in your diaries. The theme is ROYALTY, so get your thinking caps on. Tickets will go on sale next week.

School Pool Keys

Pool keys are selling fast. From my last count we had sold over 60 keys. If you or a family member would like a key then please talk to the ladies in the office. You will be able to use the school pool from now through Easter. Keys will be $80 for Shelly Park Families and $150 for non Shelly Park Families.

Scholastics book Club

The closing date for the Scholastics Book Club is November 7th.

Help - Any ideas are still welcomed

We are currently designing a one pager that gives staff, students and families and overall picture of what we stand for at Shelly Park. In this one pager we have our vision, our motto, our school values, the capabilities we want students to grow and the our anchor stones, which are the things that we are grounded in. We are looking for help from a person or people who have a background in graphic design or creativity that can bring our thoughts together on one page. We want this page to reflect our local community, our history and what we stand for. We are happy with our wording, we are just not happy with how it looks and how it all ties together. We have started the process but we don't feel that it is connected enough, it feels disjointed, so I am putting it out to the community to help us get it right. I have attached what we have so far and would love the communities input.
