Two sleeps to go. Be prepared to be wowed by all the hard work and generosity of the SFRC and our extended community on Sunday at our Frankley School carnival. Our Kapa Haka roopu will start the day at 11am - rain, hail or shine. I know many of our children have been doing extra jobs around the house to finance all the fun activities they want to partake in. This special fundraising event allows us to provide extra resourcing for our children and the chance to bring the community together to celebrate what a great place this is. See you all there!

Next Wednesday 13 November, sports photos will be taking place. Please check the list below to ensure your child is prepared for the day. Our aim is to get things right so please let us know if we have missed anything. Cricket and touch players need to bring their sports uniforms to school to get changed into please. It has been a great year for sports so let’s celebrate our teams by ensuring your child has the correct sports uniform. Other codes will be given their tops or dresses by Mrs Parkes on the day. Please ensure black shorts are worn. Thanks Wendy for sorting through our teams. Any questions please contact Wendy or Lyndon.

Deck the rooms for Refuge

Although today may feel like winter has indeed returned, Taranaki Women’s Refuge is forward focussed on the summer season. Our biennial event Deck the Rooms for Refuge returns this November and with over half the tickets already sold we are looking forward to an exciting day of festive inspiration. We have 8 homes in New Plymouth this year, each decorated with the owners interpretation of Christmas and open for you to enjoy. Tickets are available from our office, Footloose, Trade Aid, Martins or online at It is a wonderful day out for a group of friends, family or work mates; we hope to see you there.

If you are thinking of donating gifts for the women or children we work with we greatly appreciate these being donated early so that we have time to make sure they get to families on time. Your gifts are always given to families who need them and they are overwhelmingly grateful.

Another feature in this edition is ASPIRE Men’s Project. We continue to believe in the importance of providing a service for men who reach out for support and are thrilled to see this programme continue.

A very big thank you must go to Danae Etches who kindly donated her time and talents to write this edition of our Newsletter.

Kind regards and have a safe and happy day!
