Classroom and Technology awards are also given out here. If your child is receiving a class award the teacher presenting it will make contact with you over the week.

VISIT TO AOTEA UTANGANUI MUSEUM AND PATEA LIBRARY
Last week we went to Patea to visit the museum and library. At the museum we saw lots of interesting artefacts and listened to Rob Groat who kept us riveted with his lively explanations and pictures about South Taranaki history. At the library we learned about Te-tara-o-naki and how Turi discovered Taranaki. We also did some printing on foam mats and created awesome prints of a tiki. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed playing in the park at lunch.

Students no longer require their own personal device and we ask the they are not brought to school for the rest of the year.
OUTSTANDING LIBRARY BOOKS
As we approach the final days of Term 4 it is important that ALL school library books are returned so that we can do a stock take before we finish next week.
Students that have outstanding books will be given a slip with the name of the book and its cost. Please have a look around your home, under beds or in draws and see if you have one of our precious resources that can be returned.
Georgia is also Captain of the Girls' Development Team. Well done Georgia!
