School Fee Invoices

For over 25 years Noeline Cullen has been responsible for doing all of the fee invoices work. From this month on It will be taken over by Mrs Polwart. Thanks Noeline for you amazing commitment and service to the school. Noeline is still committed to the school and will help out with monitoring when she is available.

Due to our ever-changing world, we are having to upgrade our MYOB computer programme that we use for accounting and fees. The new programme should allow us to produce a fees statement with a lot more information and in an easier way to read. It will take a little time to make the changes so keep an eye on your invoices and look for the changes. If you have any questions please ask. We intend to start sending invoices by email this month. We have most people’s current email addresses but if you don’t get the School News Letter by email please contact the school and supply us with your preferred email address.

Monitors and Readers

We are in need of helper to help out at short notice when readers or monitors can’t make it to school. You would not need to stay all morning if you don’t have the time but any time you can give would be a help. I am especialy interested in talking to people who drop their children to school and who are available to stay for a while to help. We are happy for your younger children to play while you help. If you think you can help please see Mr Bell. No experience required.

We also need a new regular reader for Monday mornings. If it’s you or you know someone who can help let me know.

Pet day

Anybody bringing a lamb, calf or kid to pet day can see Mr Bell and collect a free 250ml bottle of AgriSea Animal Tonic.

Uniforms

Many of the students have grown a lot over the year so it’s a good time to make shore their uniforms still fit. Are skirts and dresses long enough, do shirts and blouses fit. It’s also a good time to repair any damaged uniform, sew up rips, replace buttons and wash out stains. It is important to keep our uniform neat and tidy.

Card board cereal boxes

The junior class have been making a lot of 3d shapes and we have used up most of our cardboard. If you have any at hope please send it to school.

A paper copy of the trip forms will be sent home for the 9 students, on Monday in case you can’t print the one over leaf. Please send them back on Tuesday Morning. Each parent will be contacted over the weekend to make final arrangements.  Children also need to wear covered footwear, bring a drink and lunch.

Pet Day

Pet day will be in the first week of term 4. Students can bring lambs, calves, or goats to school to show. There will be a flower arrangement, vegetable animal, cake decorating, small pet and a pretend pet sections. The junior class is growing vegetable seedlings to sell to cover the cost of our Horticulture lessons. Now is the time to find a pet, plant flowers and start thinking about you cake decoration. More details will follow in the coming weeks. Lambs, calves and goats can also go to group day at Kaiwaka.

Absent Students

Parents please contact the school and let us know if your child will not be at school for any reason. We need to record the reason for absences. If a child doesn’t come to school and we have not been told why we have to try to find out which means taking time out of teaching to ring parents who are often unavailable. It’s much easier for you to contact us. If a child is not at school and we have no information to say they are at home it is possible they left home but never made it to school so we are forced to ring parents to confirm missing student’s safety.

Four-legged Lawn Mowers

I would like to thank the Leaf’s for supplying and managing the mowers and Mr Cullen for making the fences mower proof. The field looks great, it will dry out much faster this spring and be easier for the ride on mowers to manage. We may even be able to beat the carrot weed which stalks hurt the kid’s feet in summer.

Help

I still need someone to take cans to the Metal Man in Whangarei. Let me know if you are going that way and have any room for them.

Card Board

Thanks for sending in the cardboard, keep the larger cereal boxes coming.

Yummy stickers

It’s almost time to send in our Yummy stickers so please send any you have to school and get a few more while we can still can. Remember you can collect the stickers of several varieties of fruit and some of the bags have cut out coupon which are also collectable.

Buses

No buses 25 August, the high school is having a teacher only day.

Monitors

We are in need of monitors for three day a week, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, to replace people who are not available this term. Mrs Mc Phail, who has been monitoring Mondays and Tuesdays has had a stroke and is recovering in hospital. Mrs Cullen who has been doing Thursdays has work to do on the farm this term. Thank you very much both to Mrs Mc Phail and to Mrs Cullen for the blessing of your hard work and commitment over the years, especially as both of you haven’t had children in the school for some time.

I would prefer people who can commit to a day a week but I am happy to schedule people on as and when they are available. I would prefer people who have completed the monitor training but we will run more training if required. If you have young children you are still welcome, we are a child friendly work place and we welcome under-fives if you can’t find a sitter.

Work hours are from 8.30 to 12.30 but we are flexible if need be. Monitors are vital to the running of the school and any help you can give will be greatly appreciated by the staff and students.

The Zoo trip will be Tuesday the 8th of August which is week three. Only the students who have chosen to do Photography for Convention will go on the trip. Permission forms will be sent out next week.

40 Hour Famine

Thanks to all those who supported the famine fundraising. This year our students raised $1251.00 which is a great effort for a small school. This brings our giving to under privileged children around the world to over $2000.00 a year when added to the $900.00 that goes to support our two Dove fund children. Well don everyone.

Scrap Metal

I need someone to take our Aluminium cans to the scrap dealer in Whangarei.  It is not worth a special trip. If you are going up and you have room in your vehicle and a few spare minutes please see me. There are three full drums of cans.

Convention Parent Help

Up until this week we had an adult male and a female to help out at Convention, but through unforeseen circumstances they are no longer available. We need both a male and a female helper to go to Convention so please let us know if you can come. You will find the trip a valuable and rewarding time. Adults going on the trip will need to pay the camp fee. For more details see Mrs Bell. Convention is in week 8, Monday the 11th to Friday the 15th of September.

PTA NEWS

The PTA has been busy over the past few weeks with money put towards Gym equipment, sound system, art supplies, and hand puppets.  We also worked together to cater for the recent Paparoa Lions Speech contest last Monday night which raised approx $550!!  Thank you to those who contributed to the meeting and to the catering.  It is wonderful working together as a team, towards the same goal of supporting the school ministry.

As a PTA, we also have accepted the opportunity to cater for the local senior citizens lunch which the Otamatea Community Services organizers, on the first Wednesday of each month at the Maungaturoto St John Hall.  This is a large undertaking and commitment in which we will need lots of help.  Food will be prepared a day or two prior to this event, with help from the senior students, and last minute food preparation on the day.  If anyone would like to help and be a part of a roster to help with food preparation or in the kitchen please let Julia Leaf know you are interested.

Head Lice

Please keep an eye on your children’s hair for head lice. I have just been informed that several students have just been treated for head lice. The school is mostly clear of head lice but children can reintroduce them from almost anywhere. Head lice are very mobile and can transfer from head to head at a friend’s house, at church, at the playground, at play centre, or anywhere children come together. This will always be a constant battle so stay alert and we can keep head lice to a minimum. The most effective way to get rid of head lice is to regularly, thoroughly wet the hair with conditioner and comb with a nit comb on a daily basis when headlice are obvious, then weekly to keep on top of them. It’s also wise to  keep hair tied up. Headlice love clean hair and will happily crawl onto anybody.

School Disco

Our PTA have organised an awesome fancy dress DISCO on Friday June 23rd (flyer attached).

We will need a few parents to help out with supervision and one or two in the kitchen to prepare snacks and refill drinks etc. If you can help, or you have any queries, Natalie Chambers is the contact person for the Junior part of the evening (pnchambers@hotmail.com or 4319042), and Kathryn Drinkwater and Kelly Richards are in charge of the Senior part of the evening (thirsty-drinkwater@xtra.co.nz and activeexplorers@gmail.com).

For the night to run smoothly, no seniors are to be at the juniors part of the disco and vice versa. The Epi Centre opposite Good News Church is available for senior students who are waiting for the senior disco to start. Parents need to be at Epicentre with their students please. We also ask that Junior students be picked up promptly at 7pm so we can clean up and set up for the Senior part of the night.

 

It’s going to be an awesome time where the students can let off some steam and have some fun in a God-glorifying environment! We are inviting Living Way Christian School and the local home-schooling students to join us. See you there!

Nail Polish

Please make sure all nail polish is removed before students come to school. Nail polish remover can be found at the 4 Square.

Convention 

This is coming sooner than we think in Term 3.  The students have a very busy time ahead of them.

A meeting will be held next Monday evening at 7pm (12th of June) to go over details and allow you to have a time to look at what your child have chosen to do and some of the requirements. Please bring some finger food for dessert.

Convention registration fees need to be in by the end of July. The cost will be $310 per person.  This includes adults who will be going.  Those who struggle please see Mr. Bell so we can arrange a weekly automatic payment over a period of time.

Convention is a part of our curriculum.  All student’s year 7 and up will be required to go. I look forward to seeing you all at the meeting.

Computers

We have recently been donated money to buy several new computers, we have also been given some more so by the end of next week we hope to have them up and running.

I am considering sending year 1 to 8 students on a beach safety course on the 7th of April which is Friday Week. It will depend on getting a booking. If we go we will need parent help with transport to Mangawhai Heads for the whole day and another lot of EOTC forms.

PTA Fund Raising

The PTA have the opportunity to cater for the Paparoa Lions Club Pioneer Luncheon this Friday, 17th March at the Paparoa Hall. We would like to do a food prep afternoon on Thursday 16th, from 1:30pm, in the school staffroom.  Hope to get the following done at this:

Peel and chop 10kg potatoes

Cut corned beef

Cook cabbage, onions, bacon

Shred chicken and make into the chicken bakes

 

If you are able to come and help, please bring, if you can, a potato peeler, chopping board and knife, and big pot.

Please come along if you can as the number we are catering for has increased from 100 to 160, so there is plenty to do.

New Student

We would like to welcome a new student to school from China, Fiona, who now lives locally. Please make the whole family welcome when you meet them.

Paparoa Show

I had a visit from a representative of the Paparoa show on Monday. She presented the school with two special certificates to recognise our students Hand Writing. Due to our small numbers of students in each age group we struggle to win enough points to win any cups. Next year the points system will be modified to give small schools a better chance of winning.
