Newsletter 3 March 2023
Today marks the half way point of term one. It's hard to believe how fast the term is flying.
This week was a jam packed one for the students and staff at BPS.
It is 'Walk n' Wheel' to School week this week. Thank you to Tania and the School Council for organising a greet 'wheelie' day on Wednesday. I was very impressed with their traffic management at lunch time!
Yesterday, the school council organised a mufti day to raise money for the Cyclone Relief Appeal. There was a lot of very creative outfits across the school, and an impressive amount of money raised. Thank you all for your support!
Next Friday evening, our Whānau and School have organised a Spud Dig. Please bring along your potatoes that were given out at the end of last year. Even if you don't have a potato, you are welcome to come along. This is a great opportunity to catch up with other school families, have a look around the school, and have a sausage sizzle. I am looking forward to seeing you all there. Who will win the prize for the best potato?
Have a greet weekend,

What a fun week in Room 7! We have had Skip, our Sports Activator, at school. We had lots of fun trying his tricky challenges. We were all looking 'chaotic' on Thursday with our mufti day for Cyclone Gabrielle!
