Well what a great way to the end the week. The time, energy and effort finally paid off. Our students did themselves and our school proud. What a fabulous performance by all.

Many thank to the following:

Tawhiti School who donated props and costumes.

Stratford on Stage.

Frances Yaxley - Hawera Costume Hire.

Our many parents that have assisted with props, costumes and a lot of other behind the scenes organisation.

All our staff - teaching and support who have worked collaboratively to pull this all together.

Finally THANK YOU to our amazing, creative and talented Toko School Students!!!

The Art's is an area that we believe we need to develop, nurture and grow in all our children.

I am sure you will join me in thanking and congratulating all who assisted to make Shrek another memorable performance for Toko School.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOME VOLUNTEERS - COULD THIS SUIT YOU??

We are on the look out for a couple or retired people from our community, grandparents or anyone that has a spare few hours each week to help out with:

our enviro projects and to lend a hand in the orchard and in our vegetable gardens or

to do odd jobs around the school that pop up every now and again or

to assist with spraying the school grounds a few times a year or

to assist with cooking/preserving some of the food we grow.

If you are interested please give Kim a call so we can chat about how we can work together. If you have a little bit of time or a lot of time we would love to hear from you :)

SPORTS DESK

Touch Rugby


Touch Rugby has finished for the season. A massive well done to all of those kids who got involved and gave it a go. We had 6 teams entered in the competition which is a great effort. Well done to the Toko Rabbitohs Year 5 & 6 and Toko Panthers Year 7 & 8 who made it to the playoffs for 1st and 2nd. Both teams drew in the finals. A huge thank you goes to Karl Roberts, Mouse Maketoni, Damo Wilson, Kim & Craig Watson and Clint Hutchinson, our coaches who volunteered their time and efforts to help.

THANK YOU TO THE FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE

This year the Fundraising Committee have donated $16000.00 to the school. This money has assisted to support costs of the Year 7 & 8 Camp, extra school seating for the hall, outside benches, library books and PE equipment. We really appreciate the extra funds provided which enable our school to purchase extra items that enrich our school for our students. Thank you to Fundraising Committee and all our school families that support the events that they run. WHAT A GREAT TEAM EFFORT!!!!!!
