Levin East School


Kia ora tātou,

The summer sun has finally found us and our pool is ready for action (thanks Mr B!). We will plan our swimming times from next week. Aren't we lucky to still have our pool!!

This time of year does see more lost property, so please name everything you can.

We have only four weeks of school to go and you can see from the events below how busy they will be. It is an exciting time and the children are on board with their learning and out-of-class activities. We have welcomed many, many new students this term and I think some of them are surprised at how much is on offer. I think it is a wonderful part of our school kaupapa.

The New World Grocery Grab is drawn today - thank you to everyone who bought tickets. A massive thank you to Matt and the New World team to make it possible, and to our FundTogether group for driving it.

Don't forget to check out the Christmas Market next Thursday, 24th November, it is a great night and all funds raised go back to classes. See you there!

Have a great week,

Kia pai tō wiki.
