News Letter Week 7 Term 1

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.
