Family/ Whānau Fun Night
I would like to warmly invite our Stanley Avenue Community to a fun picnic evening on Wednesday 14th February. Our Board of Trustees will again provide a free sausage sizzle for all in attendance. Additionally, Moosies $2 and Juices $1.50 will be available to buy. So bring your families/whānau along and take part in a range of sports and activities. It will provide students, staff, families/whānau with a chance to reconnect and build relationships. I can’t wait to see you there!

Road Safety- School Crossing
With the start of the school year it is timely to remind all school families that the use of the school crossing is imperative for everyone’s safety. If you are crossing Stanley Avenue Road before and after school, particularly with your children we would appreciate it if you use the crossing. This provides positive role modelling to all students young and old. We thank you for your cooperation on this matter. Please do not take offence if you are asked to use the crossing.
A reminder to all parents and caregivers that students cycling to school are required to wear helmets to and from Stanley Avenue School. For students safety it is really important to ensure helmets fit correctly and are in suitable condition. Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.

Room 9 Summer Holiday mobile
Room 9 students had awesome summer holidays at the beach and the pools! They have been very busy creating art using paints, dye, stencils and paper plates to create this neat summer mobile.
Students have also been talking lots about their families and even made them out of playdough. We have also been taking funny photos. Some look like we are falling... can you guess what our next art project is going to be?

Purchase your Own New SAS Sports Shirt!
We have 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.
