It is with great pleasure that we announce to you that the Te Aroha Kāhui Ako is bringing John Parsons to Te Aroha on the 6 - 8 June. John is an Internet Safety and Risk Assessment Consultant working with schools, providing specialist advice and direction on the safe and ethical use of Digital Communication Technology. His working history is long and distinguished, we recommend you visit https://www.citizen21.co.nz/ to find out more about John and what he will be offering over his three day visit to Te Aroha.
Over the course of the three days, John will be working in schools with students, teachers and school leaders. He will also be hosting two parent sessions, a combined Board of Trustees meeting and a combined staff meeting. Our aim is for John to be in front of as many children, educators and adults as possible.

Purchase your Own New SAS Sports Shirt!
We have just gone live on DirectGroup Uniforms with our new Sports Shirts that you are able to purchase. We feel moving forward this is a great option and will save a lot of time issuing and collecting sports shirts. At this time we still have our other sports shirts for anyone that is playing and has not purchased their own yet. Check them out at:
You can purchase the sport shirts and they arrive directly to your address and they even have Afterpay so that it makes it possible to budget. We are looking forward to seeing these appearing on our sports fields.
Congratulations to all of our certificate recipients for Week 3.
Rippa Rugby Qualifying Tournament
Stanley Ave was represented by four teams consisting of Year 5-6 Girls and Boys and Year 7-8 Girls and Boys. Only two teams could qualify from each division. Some quality Rippa Rugby was on display with fast determined running, slick passing and determined defence.
It’s pleasing to announce that all four of our Stanley Ave teams have made it through to the Thames Valley finals. Special mention should be made of our Year 7/8 Girls teams that beat a strong St Joseph’s side in the qualifying final. Please note not all divisions had finals.
I would like to acknowledge Dave Wood, Kristina Watts, Whaea Sammi, Jay Werahiko and Karl House who assisted with the coaching and managing of the teams. Additionally, it was great to see a strong support crew on the sidelines. We greatly look forward to the Thames Valley Championship. The date for this is still to be confirmed.

Matariki Breakfast 21st July Term 3
Every year at Stanley Avenue School we celebrate Matariki, which ends with a culminating activity where we involve our school community. This year we are planning a Matariki Breakfast on Friday 21st July (Week 1 Term 3).
Our event last year fed over 350 friends and whānau of the school and we are looking forward to being able to hold this event again this year.
We are currently seeking sponsorship from our school and wider community, to support us with this event. If you are a part of any business or family who might like to support us in any way, please feel free to contact Chris Finucane/Assistant Principal, or John Byers/ Principal.
Any assistance would be gratefully received.
Oxford Pie Fundraiser - orders Close 13th June
It's that time of year again!!! We are taking part in the fantastic Oxford Pies Fundraiser.

Please note : When paying for pies - please make 1 payment per form (especially if using Eftpos and/or online banking.) This makes it a lot easier for us to track and collate orders.
