Newsletter Term 4 Week 2

Patumahoe School 26th October 2022


Kia ora Parents, Caregivers and extended Whanau

My first week at Patumahoe School has been an absolute pleasure. I have throughly enjoyed meeting all the children and some of our families. Everyone has been very welcoming.

Production practice is in full swing at present.

Work is going to be started on the senior playground today. We would like to thank Pelorus Trust and the PTA for their contribution to be able to make this happen. We will put photos in newsletter next week.

Nga mihi nui,

Last Wednesday our Year 5 and 6 Girls basketball team competed in the Franklin Schools competition. The girls played 7 games in the round robin, winning 6 of them and drawing with Pukekohe North. They met Pukekohe North in the final and won 10-4! Throughout the day the girls demonstrated our values of Kotahitanga (unity) and Manaakitanga (respect and honesty). A huge thanks to Shelley Farrell and Mrs Morrison for supporting our girls.


As the days are getting hotter, it is important that children remember to wear a sunhat when outside. We will provide sunscreen for school sports days and activities, however on a daily basis please ensure that you are applying sunscreen before your child comes to school.


This week's assembly will be hosted by Room 13 & 9 starting at 1.50pm in the hall. All welcome. There will be no assembly next week due to teacher only day.


Can we please have all end of year trophies returned to the office as soon as possible.


Scholastic book club orders are due in Friday this week.
