From The Principal

Please remember to pray this month for loved ones who have passed away.  Make it a daily routine for the month. There is a box in the Church where you can put your loved one’s name on it so the community can pray for them as well. 

Please keep the date Monday 16th December free 5pm-6.30pm for our Prizegiving.  All students and families are requested to attend.  Prizes are given out for all ages and it would be a shame to –
1.   Miss out on receiving an award;   and
2.   Not be there to support and celebrate those who do receive an award.

16 Days left
For senior students to finish eight homework challenges (two in each section). I’m sorry, no late finishes will be accepted on the trip or for badges as these need to be ordered and received in a short time span.  Please keep in touch with your child’s teacher regarding these. 

If you are struggling to open our photos, it is probably because the photos are of high quality.  To get around this, click on the link to the whole album rather than the post itself and then you will be able to see it all. Enjoy!

Kaipara / Athletics
We had 18 students represent us at the South East Athletics Zones on Tuesday. I was so impressed by the effort and nature of our students. They participated with energy and kindness. It was great to see. Thanks to Penny Cherry for all of the organisation of the day. We look to have three progressing to the Canterbury Championships but this could increase with illness or event clashes (we had many third placings – top two go through).
