Newsletter - Term 4 Week 2

Friday, 29th October 2021


Kia ora koutou,

Firstly, I would like to congratulate all of our golfers for their efforts this week at the Western Golf competition. All of our teams have now made it through and qualified for the Southland Golf competition at Drummond in a couple of weeks.

Next week the board of trustees will be meeting to discuss how the COVID-19 Vaccination Order will apply for volunteers (eg parent help). The board at present are working through the fine detail of the order and more information will be sent out in the newsletter next week. It is the legal responsibility of the school to follow the public health order so please don't be offended by any new regulations that will come out in the coming weeks.

AGRI DAY - Friday 5th November

More information will come out early next week. The rough outline is below:

9.00-12.00pm - Students will be involved in Agri Kids based activities.

12.00pm - 1.00pm - Lunch (BBQ) (There will be no Fish & Chip orders)

1.30pm - 2.30pm - Year 8 Activities (as per normal during Pet Day)
