PACEs and score keys for sale…please collect them this week

For those of you who have asked to buy PACEs and score keys for homeschooling, please can you arrange to pick them up and pay for them this week (after 3pm, please, to minimise disruption in class time).

If you haven’t already told us, we also need to know what score keys you want to purchase.  Please email us or send a list with your child’s notebook.

You can pay by cash, or cheque, or by internet banking (contact the school for details).


Water Slide & Water Fight, Tuesday, 11 December

We thought it would be nice for the children to have one more of our famous water slide/water fight afternoons tomorrow.  Please can your children bring their togs and towels and any water pistols they might like to use to add to the fun.  To keep the school clean and dry afterwards we ask that the children go home in their wet togs rather than getting changed at school.


Avast there, all ye pirates… a note from Pirate Pete…

Arrrhhh!.. I thought it would be good to have one last theme day to finish the year off in a fun way.  Please can the children come dressed in pirate regalia on Thursday morning, 13 December.

We will have some pirate games together: the odd friendly keelhauling, a plank-walking or two, maybe some canon fire to dodge, maybe some buried treasure to search for.

It would be great if those students who are normally home schooled on Thursdays could come along for the morning to be part of the fun together as a whole school one last time.


End of the School Year, Thursday, 13 December, 12.30pm

School will finish at lunchtime, 12.30pm, this Thursday – please can you arrange to pick up your children by 2.00pm at the latest.  If this presents a logistical problem for you, please see if another school family can collect your children or, if necessary, contact Peter or Sharon.

You are welcome to make your way out to Allistair and Sharon’s home, 67 Whakapirau Rd, any time from 2.00pm and enjoy the afternoon out there at their pool, prior to our end of year dinner and awards evening (details below).  Please do not use the pool until Sharon or Allistair is there to oversee its use.

Parents are responsible to supervise their children while swimming, or if another family is going to supervise your child, please let Peter or Sharon know.

End of Year Awards Evening, Thursday, 13 December, 2.00 to 9:00 pm

We invite you to attend our end of year awards celebration at Allistair and Sharon Shepherd’s home, 67 Whakapirau Rd, Te Hana, on Thursday, 12 December.

Details of the event are as follows:

  • 2:00-6.00 p.m. Swimming in the pool – optional!  You must supervise your own children or arrange for someone to supervise them for you, please.
  • 6:00-6:30 p.m. bring your meat for the BBQ, so we can be ready to eat by 6.30 p.m.
  • 6:30-7.30 p.m. BBQ and pot-luck dinner
  • 7:30-8.30 p.m. Presentation of Awards
  • 8:30-9:00 p.m. Dessert, followed by tea/coffee/cordial, finish and tidy up

What to bring (and what not to bring):

  • Please can each family bring their own meat for the BBQ, plus a salad to share.
  • You do not need to bring crockery and cutlery for this event (hurrah! I hear you say)
  • Dessert, tea, coffee, and cordial drink will be provided.
  • You might also want to bring a camp chair or two to sit on, so that we have enough seating for the adults.

Please join with us for all or any part of this event as we celebrate the completion of our school year. We would love to see you there.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Thomas



School Photos
I took photos of our students recently.  You are welcome to come and order copies of the group photos and we will arrange to have them printed off for you at cost. If you would like to bring in a USB memory stick, I can give you electronic copies of your children’s individual photos, or I can email copies out to you.  Contact Peter about this.
