Balclutha Primary School - T4 Wk 7
Newsletter 2 December 2022
Congratulations to Tania and our PALs (Physical Activity Leaders) for a stunning colour run on Thursday afternoon. It was wonderful to see some great young leaders step up and organise such a fun event for our school. The joy and excitement among our students was contagious, and it was fabulous to see so many parents come along and enjoy the afternoon with their children.
Congratulations to the brave souls who joined in with the colour run. I hope there wasn't too much colour in cars as you took wet, colourful children home!
With only 7 and 1/2 days of school left this year, classes are busy frantically finishing off work and moving equipment and resources ready for 2023. End of year reports will go home next Friday.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Lost Uniform Tops
If you find your child has picked up the wrong top by mistake, (it happens a lot at the moment with the day starting out cold and then getting hot, often tops are left outside during breaktimes), please return it to the school office and we will get it back to the owner.
Any tops that are found without an owner are placed on a stand in the corridor next to the school foyer. Pupils (and Parents) are welcome to check the found property at any time.
